Re: Is this a Yacht?

trick question - you don't fool me; it's clearly two yachts combined in some wierd, probably booze-fuelled, garden shed project.

Erm....

1 - Marc is voting his own way. I just refused to let him use my laptop.
2 - We had a chainplate failure: Chainplate Failure and Concerns
Actually, it turned out we were slack in our inspections. Had we inspected ('at all', never mind 'more carefully'), we would have seen that the back of the chainplate was rusting, and that the reinforcing thing inside the hull was in two parts for some reason... not one long part. Now we inspect things more carefully. Sort of.
