Re: Happy $mas!

It's getting me being on it and getting pleasure out of the situation. With a bit of luck my lovely lady will get exactly the same.

Coops.

Re: Happy $mas!

To all the butt getters, may they be round and true ( symmetrical)
Zee, may Santa bring you special engine gifts
DOJ-what's your boat getting?

Me, I can't count the pressies, we are burning up the boat stores buying for Rain Dog, thus buying for us. Amsteel line(assorted sizes) splicing Dvd for me, Radio cabinet with new fancy schmancy radio(music), new head( compost), weather cloths, etc etc. I guess our present to us is a sweet refit. Shelves in the compartments!! I loves me my shelves.

Best present will be anchored out on New Year's Eve

Re: Happy $mas!

Mine's getting a new-to-me sweet little diesel Volvo the week after Christmas.

And everything associated (starter/generator, new Racor R12S filter, etc.)
But mostly I'm getting back underway which will be the very best.
