varnish removal

Any tips on how to remove old varnish? Sanding is boring and one never seems to be able to get it all off. Is there a solvent that will solve the problem?

Just to ensure there is no repeat of calandar errors in 2009, I have very kindly downloaded and printed (on yellow card) the dates for next year.

So - no excuses now!

Will be at home, Seil, at the weekend. We may go out on Saturday. No set plans as Nick has been away all week and is coming back on the ferry from Barra late tomorrow.

Come and anchor in Puilladobhran and walk over to the Tigh an Truish.

I'll pm our phone number.

We went round Ireland a few years ago and were 'boarded' by customs - a very nice guy in casual wear who asked only a few basic questions about where we were from and where we were going. We showed him ships papers and I think passports, so would always carry them just in case. All a very laid back ...

Sleeping whales seem to be more of a problem than containers. We met a boat in Horta that had hit a whale at night. All the attachments fell off the mast, luckily the hull was undamaged. Very scary indeed.

It is a great pity that C. John Taylor is not around, I'm sure a portrait of Shard, by this very talented man, would have been a masterpiece - admired by all in the yachting world.
