Well I am going to Southampton for a bigger boat fix . My mate's Nauticat 331 is being hauled out for its yearly hull check  It has been coppercoated  so no antifowling just anode changes and prop to grease and hull to polish  .The prop is a bit different for a 14 meter motorsailer it is manual variable pitch ( it has to come out of the water to do this) and feathering .
Happy Easter everyone

Well, I turn 65 and am hard at work on this year's Model Boats Special issue.
 
Still, there's the pension to look forward to....

Nights at the gas terminal all weekend, making sure you all have plenty of gas to keep your central heating going!

One slight plus, sat night is an 11 hr shift instead of the usual 12 hr due to the clock change - woo hoo!

I'll be looking at small holdings in North Wales - Tregarth or thereabouts. Wifey wants horses.
Stavros where do you sail your boat around Bethesda?

Sorry CPM1.......last night according to the OZ version of the BBC.....all of the ponies & larger horses have disappeared  from Wales......true documentary....I am sure it would have recently been screened in the UK.....most disturbing images & stories  >>:-( it also suggested the recent [meat] protein substitution has been illegally practised for a number of years
Moderators..... please excuse the above comments as being off thread, however we wouldn't want CPM1 & wifey searching all of Northern Wales for a few ponies if they are all gone   <:(  ....Derek
