Nick,

when you get it, send it to me, and it's possible I might be able to help.
And next time I'm in the otter pool, I'll come over the hill thirsty!

The Navik on Fairwids steered her several thousand miles back in 2006/2007 , though it has only done a N Sea crossing and a couple of Minch crossings since then.



Told you so :nyah:
