Bob says he's hanging loose about the boat buying as <non-sailing comment about stock-market has been automatically edited out>but if we see 'The One' and a sunbeam with a heavenly choir start up we will have to see. I shall also keep on the lookout for the Blue Moments Merchandise Stand and furtiv...

Whether it be honey which is - er - excreted from bees (vegans don't touch the stuff), syrup - which is inverted sugar, brown unbleached muscovado sugar or just plain sugar it has about the same effect on your teeth if you don't brush them before casting off. It also has similar calorific values. O...

I suspect surface area may contribute to the clumping problem. However you cannot put lumps of sugar on your wheaty-bangs.

Have you considered clear honey?

Trouville, ask your Galley Slave nicely for a slice of chocolate cake, have a large mug of hot tea, tighten your gib sheet and stay with 'The boys' here on Blue Moments.

In the current climate of things crunching, Fanny May (or May Not), Stern Bears and Lynching of Merrill - I have decided to tighten my stays and recycle my old innuendoes from such comedy shows as 'The Goon Show' and 'The Navy Lark'. This should save a few dubloons. So - not really cybersex - just ...

I also have a wind-up torch from Aldi - if you are arriving on a boat in the dark a wind-up head light and a torch are excellent to climb aboard the boat and find the storm lantern (and matches).

Just got back from a long weekend in Tarbert discussing new boats, viewing Scottish Moorings and catching up with Ash and Joan (more posts on this later). I can confirm that the preliminary work to drop the first piles starts in the coming week - weather permitting. The plans are posted on the side...
