No foaties, pointless on a Kindle.

There will be a link to an accompanying foatie album.

I think kindle books work well with phoaties. Nick is probably struggling to get his Brownie 127 to work.
Anyway Wullyum. I have a new pair of testicles and can read small print Chust fine.

They do unless you read them on a Kindle. Which is how I read my Kindle books.

If you want to look at the pictures you can go to the blog, which has been there since 2007 at http://znoy8.co.uk

I might put it together as an Amazon print-on-demand paperback at some point, but I don't have time at the moment. This is just to publish the log of the trip as a continuous narrative in a portable format.

That’s all well and good Nick but what everyone wants to know is where Claymore got his new testicles from and is the installation scar at all visible.

Note to Claymore: photographic evidence is NOT required

That will be in the sequel.

Have added foaties and corrected the spelling. Book is publishing now, then I have to upload the latest improved version, should be available next week.

I understand that the standard "checking you've got everything" mantra goes "Spectacles, testicles, wallet, watch".

Just finished reading this (the kindle book, not the thread). Really enjoyed it - moves along at a nice pace, very informative but not so much detail that you get bogged down. Nice to read to get a sailing fix while locked down.
