    Hi Ann,

    Do you have the address for the Canadian Drug company that sells the sea sickness medication that works for you.

    Also, does it make you sleepy?

    Hey Jim,

    We sailed down to Ile Des Pine with you apparently - we spoke with your wife, Ann, on the VHF briefly and did not realise it was you. We managed a 'get together' with Jolifu (Bruce and Lyn) but sadly missed you guys.

    Anyway, we are still in New Caledonia having tied off at Maitre where we are preparing Impi for her passage to New Zealand - not sure if you are still here but perhaps our paths will cross soon - we sincerely hope so! We are meeting so many Cruisers who are part of Cruisers Forum out here - really nice

    Cheers for now

    Thanks for your note, Ann. Yes, very sad and hard. I do think, however, that the design of some craft has led them too far from seaworthiness in favour of comfort. We now avoid most of the worst seas due to far better forecasting in particular, but it is not possible to avoid them all. This delivery should not have taken place at that season. Yours Aye, Steven H.

    Depends on the meaning one looks for Ann..
    L' Enjoleuse Absinth.
    The colour is avery deep, dark olive, almost brown. Clean and clear. It's very sweet-smelling, more fruity and spicy than herbal, a bit like spiced rum. Anise is present but isn't very strong.

    The louche is quick, nice, and full without overkill. Very good fuille morte colour. Opalescent caramel with hints of green. With water it smells much more honeylike and mellow. Anise and floral wormwood, but dark. Butterscotch and raisins.

    The flavour is floral wormwood upfront, followed by a juicy fruit flavour. Anise is in good balance. Spicy and vegetal, but also confectionary and sweet. Light lemon. Sort of a ringing flavour if that makes any sense.

    The finish is fruity and creamy, a bit numbing but not too bad. Spicy and gardeny, less dark than before.

    Normally I'm not a big fan of deep, dark (in flavour) absinthes like this
    Google translate.. The Coaxing.. which could also be.. The Wooing..
    I did not name her

    Hello Ann,
    I've been given your link by carstenb.
    You were enquiring about the air draft on our boat for sale which is 2.6 with aerials down and suitable for all the canals in Europe.
    I'm a spanners man and not so good on the Laptops but have sent you details in a private message. If you have any more questions or would like photo's send me a pv with an e mail and I'll send them on to you.
    Thank you for your enquiry.
