With a name like "voyager" should we assume you are a bit of a traveller yourself ?   Want to take Red O somewhere?

I do indeed travel, mostly here in the Uk tho! Though my user name "Voyager" came through a fondness of StarTrek and not because i'm a globe trotter lol.

I'd be all to happy to take your Red Ocktober somewhere, my up coming destinations are, Peterborough, Bournemouth, Brighton and an unknown overseas trip that my future father in law has arranged. Are these any good to you?

It was built by Toesup in the west coast of USA.   b, it has done it`s UK bit having been in Scotland, England and Wales so maybe if your foreign trip is in Spain or west coast of France....?   Hope your future Dad-in-law-to-be hasnt plans for Devil`s Island or suchlike >:-o.  If it is a honeymoon present then you wont want to be bothered with a toy boat {-)  You can PM nearer the time. :-))

I'll do that  :-)) For all i know it could be a holiday to somewhere in the middle of the desert lol. But should it be someplace where Red hasn't been then i'll give you a shout.
The holiday was a treat from him to celebrate turning 65, as for the honeymoon present...well that's not for some time!

No Bill it is in a wooden box just big enough to cover the boat, about 20"X12" if I remember. When I took it to Germany and Austria it was out of the box and slipped into a small rucksack and carried on the plane as hand luggage,"cabin" ie overhead locker.  No radio or batteries so no "security" issues. Red O is supposed to be going down to Spain shortly, after that not sure but we have people expecting it all over, 25 countries in fact. Free transport by HM Gov plane would be nice O0   I know the western end of Cyprus quite well  Ktima / Paphos area and north, been a while since I was there, loved it. Keep in touch, I`ll put you on the list :-))

SITREP:  Carrier pigeon returns exhausted, strong winds over Pyrenees (OK so it got lost)with information that supplies and fresh nuclear fuel are being installed aboard Red Oktober at secret location in western France. A imminent departure suspected.  24hr surveillance continues, agent Jaquette Rouge on the job..correction, should read  watching dock. Msg ends.

"Oh me father was the Keeper of the Eddystone Light
And he married a mermaid one fine night.
The result of this union, you shall see,
Two little fishes and the third was me!

Singing yohoho, the wind blows free
Oh for a life on the rolling sea"

....nothing bawdy there.

Ah but that was a lighthouse keepers shanty, we are talking about sub,and I mean SUBmariners shanties. Betcha they`d be pretty coarse after a few vins rouge.  For those not familiar with the idea here is the original poster. If you want to be part of or you can help or have any ideas let me know.
