Exclamation What a flippin Hoot!!!

We have just had our rigging replaced and at the same time I asked the rigger to instal a new mast aerial. I decided to mouse the new cable through the boat last weekend and attach a plug so I could listen to the vhf. Turned out the old plug and cable from the vhf was never attached to the old mast aerial. It had about 3 metres of cable behind the linings and then was cut!!! I can't believe it ever worked. Wow, the new arerial is clear.

Because we like a challenge, like solving puzzles and love throwing our money away.
Sheeeesh, and you thought it was laying back and sipping cocktails in beautiful anchorages.

For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.

Well Rick.

You can drink your cocktails. But you have to maintain and drive/motor your boat on top of the drinking fun!
