Hi from ye olde worlde!

Just to hi on my first post, have come for a snoop around from The Olde Englande (well, sort of) probably never make it "accross the pond", but you never know, and I figure planning "the big one" is part of the fun of owning a boat, especially now that winter is approaching

Cheers

Do you have firearms on your mono/multihull to repel pirate attacks?

Re: Hi from ye olde worlde!

I nearly got exported to NZ in the late 60's.

Isn't Australia nearby?

Re: Hi from ye olde worlde!

First post?

Yet identified as being the scribbler of 3,861 prior posts”?

That confirms my belief that there are three kinds of people;

Those who can count,

And those who can’t count…

Welcome to whichever side of whichever pond you eventually decide to cross…
