Cruise and surf?

Ive recently moved my laptop to the wheeelhouse where I can get a better signal whilst im waiting to get the mast sorted out.

Unfortunately, its a distraction as im currently working in here and cant resist taking a peek every once in a while, and its got me wondering how many other CF members are online whilst they are at work or aboard, cruising or just distracted instead of doing something else?

Today ive started making the instrument panel and the locker to protect the lectrix

Re: Cruise and surf?

Your home/boat is really looking great anjou.

If I'm working around the house CF is a constant distraction. On the boat where she's moored I can't pick up a signal and underway I don't check until I anchor - the laptop is usually busy with the plotter software.

Re: Cruise and surf?

Ditto what Mark said...looks great, and so well organized.
I don't have any signal on my boat so internet distraction for me...Thank goodness or it would have been another 5 years.
