Thanks. That was my point exactly but was too knackered to pursue it - LOL

Of course it was somewhat tongue in cheeck.

Smile Re: SHTF and Boats

My solution to any SHTF or end of the world scenario is to open my gun safe, pour a big stiff drink or 3 and sit in my big easy chair and wait for the end! No fuss, no muss because it is all beyond what any of us can do about it!
Might as well go out feeliní good and without a care in the world...

Nope. The second one was dropped three days later because the Japanese did not immediately surrender. A "renaissance man" does homework.
