Re: Don't Pay The Ferryman...

G'Day Boatman,

So, how long will you be in Tassie? We hope to be there within a fortnight or so, and would keep an eye out for you if you are still in the area... love to have a yarn and a glass with you.

Meanwhile enjoy the Huon Valley, the wooden boat folks and especially the good folks at the Port Cygnet Sailing Club... about our favorite spot in Australia, Port Cygnet!

Cheers,

Jim

Hi Jim... I head for Melbourne tomorrow evening then Portugal early Sunday for Christmas with a return ticket in case I need to come back for more of this pointless stupid litigation thats wasting everyones time and money... just hope we can get to a mutual agreement soon... but time is on my side now and I'm solvent again after arranging for the disposal of some of my 'toys' back home. Gonna miss the 4.5 RIB and my car but its just a dust catcher lately and I've the Suzi 125 Trail as back-up so alls good.
I will take this opportunity to say... once again...
THANKS TO ALL FOR THE AWESOME SUPPORT BOTH MORAL AND FINANCIAL....:fl owers: you guys n gals have been magic...
NO FURTHER DONATIONS REQUIRED... I'M ON MY FEET AGAIN... SO HANG ON TO YOUR CASH...

Phil

Re: Don't Pay The Ferryman...

I spoke to Boatman last night with offers of food, beer, etc. Unfortunately, his schedule and ours did not correlate (he's gonna be in Hobart precisely when we are on the boat sailing all day, heh), so we won't have the pleasure of his company and he misses the dubious pleasure of our company. We tried though.

Maaaate, Boatie is one sailor I would give up a day's sailing for. The water will still be there Sunday...... unless of course, you are winning some race series - that might be different
