Re: Kamamkazi Gannet Strike

I see you've met Puddock, the Gannet?

I've been dive bombed by Fulmars and by Skuas when surfacing after a dive, and Skuas on dry land as well.

Re: Prop - antifoul?

Nah, I'm struggling with this one. I'm pretty certain 'Ra Dug' is something to do with egyptology, Ra being the sun God. Was he excavating something?

Re: Prop - antifoul?

i don't think I'd bother. I reckon the antifoul would come off fairly quickly on a prop, and, containing copper, a bronze prop has a natural antifoul property anyway.

Those barnacles though, were they dizzy?

Re: Burgee - 2 Year Guarantee?

I'd be tempted to look for a viking, with a brand new posing pouch which looks very like your old burgee, with a smidgeon of volcanic ash mixed in.
