Shadow - What's your schedule in Singapore? If you get off the boat, I'd be glad to buy you a beer at our club.

Are you going into Sembawang? If so you'll pass right by my boat. I might even be bribed to help blow a boiler and give you a vacation here - LOL...

Oh wait - maybe it's a secret where you are going. Navy hush hush and all that....

Enjoy it

Shadow,
I like the deal you made, and think it will give you lots of pleasure. I wish my first boat was that nice. I basically bought a good hull, that's it. I enjoyed all of the hours I put into replacing things and trying to figure out how things worked. They say you should know your boat inside and out, for sure you will get that oppurtunity just like I did.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Steve

Shadow - Although I now suspect your morals as being too high for not drinking I suppose I can raise my standards a bit and buy you a Coke or at least a Ginger Ale - LOL.

Your bucket o' bolts might be big but we get a few biggies by from time to time...

She has a nice shape. What is she? She needs some work, but she's yours - not the bank's. One of my boats had a family of raccoons living on it when I got it. It was full of water & raccoon crap. I wouldn't let my wife see it for the first two weeks. Get a gallon of Clorox Cleanup & some paper towels, some gloves, and an outboard motor. Scrub her up & go sailing.

Yeah. But what works on Racoon crap! LOL.

Jeez - I'd rather clean oil way more than any kind of animal crap - LOL.

See how lucky you are Shadow?

Racoon crap? Send him to Changi jail! (I lived in Singapore in the 70's when Bugis Street was alive and the food stalls in the car parks were everwywhere).
