Re: Hello All

Welcome, Pauliebear... Garden designs are favorites the world over. I was aboard his personal boat, Toad, in Port Townsend a few years ago and met him... a wonderful old man, absolutely unique as a designer and an icon of the sailing world. If you have one of his designs and it is in reasonable condition, it is a real find and great to refurbish. It will keep you busy during those long NZ winters! Cheers, Capt Phil
