It's transporting the glass negatives across the
poor Cornish roads that's the problem  {-) {-)

I like it Gordon  :-)) :-)) :-))

Now I know what to do with my Victoria when I get fed up with it.

Don't apologise for going to the lake.
Grab any chance you can.
I've just had a couple of hours sailing my Marblehead
in good company.

Plenty of time for building when it's raining.

that is awesome,came across this searching for your duck. shame i missed you selling the victoria,my uncle has one and i get on really well sailing it,much easier than my voyager which can be a handful.
credit to you tho,looks like an excellent conversion from bits and pieces .how many coffees did it cost you for the stirrers  :-)) :-))
