Ooops Coops must endeavour to find those reading glasses.
Interesting reading that possibly started with the bad deck leaks and subsequent repairs. Undoubtedly this subject has been rehashed endlessly.
As a former blue water cruiser it is always sad to hear when someone looses their home, and many of their worldly possession's.
While on that subject its gusting to30 kn time to check up on Wee Barkie.
Cheers Tom

Hey Coops she is rocking on a mooring at Fingal, and I mean that literally. Spend a few hours around noon working on the boat, and I figure I came close to being bucked of in one of the big gusts while cutting some Australian red cedar. Wind gusts bulleting through at about 40, complete with spray on the foredeck. I am just trying to get WB ship shape for the WBF in Hobart next year, providing they will have me!
Good to hear you appreciate Collin Archers you will have to come out with me either trolling a couple of lines across the bar ,or the next race day with the Tweed Valley Sailing Club. Cheers Tom
