time to breathe some life into this fantastic thread that we all love]

just read their latest update and it has a bit of a laugh in it, the thing that i like about these guys is their honesty in admitting to the mistakes and bad ideas they have, most cruisers only post the rosy side of their cruising and dont tell of the painful and embarrassing mistakes they make along the way, ]

any way letting out all your anchor chain in 300 ft of water and finding you cant get it up again is pretty funny... if it isnt you

as for my boat building stuff i royally stuffed up the other day, i glued all my wiring into my ceiling before gluing my top roof skin on, anyway without any forethought i placed my genoa tracks on the roof and predrilled the holes drilling one hole straight through my wiring aargh, out with a router a knife pliers and soldering iron, any way the wire is now repaired and the hole need to be reglassed and bogged up,

a royal stuff up in anyones book and in my perfectionist world even more so

I must admit that I made a special note to myself to never do that. Although I had not anticipated ever doing so, obviously they thought this would be a solution to the problem, and it wasn't. Actually, from reading their stuff, I've made several of those notes about "don't do this!"

I, too, applaud their honesty.

Don't worry northern y'day while rushing to finish some glassing as the resin was kicking I dropped a tool on the floor, it is now a permanent feature of the floor as it was covered in resin.

I must admit that their Oman, Yemen, Red Sea, Sudan & Egypt adventures were completely fascinating and utterly ballzy. I was just picturing all the things that would have happened to my boat if I had left it sitting for a week unattended.

I outright ENVY their youth and guts to be doing what I've been saving and planning all my life for.
