    Hi Alex,

    Hope your mum is making a good recovery. I am still making preparations and will be off on the 19th, if you are back in Fal by the 17th I will be going out for a few beers that night. Otherwise take care of yourself and I'll see you on the return leg!

    All the best,

    Hi Alex - thanks very much for your comments re: sailing south from The Canaries. We have not completely decided what do to do exactly however I am currently scanning the World Cruising Routes and Handbook of guru Jimmy Cornell for a more stategic way.

    You are correct about both not being able to clear in to Brazil at FDN, however yes - they won't chuck you off the island for a few days which may work okay for us. I think that we will be going as far south down the Brazilian coast as poss and then across to Capetown. I had visions of sailing to St Helena and then Namibia however prevailing wind wise it does not make sense and also to go as far south as Rio and then come back up north to reach St Helena does not make sense either...

    Happy New Year and thank you so much for sharing your insights and experience with us...

    hi atoll,
    remember me? you gave me some great advice on restoring my tinnie in phuket a while back and it came up great in the end so thanks a lot for that.
    now from your posts i have read in many threads on this forum you probably will be able to give me some really good advice again as by the sounds of it you have sailed all over the globe !
    i am looking at buying a boat in the bahamas and sailing it back to thailand next month,being mid august 2011.have you sailed this route before ? if so can you advise me on the best route for that time of year please and any other advice you may have will be greatly appreciated.

    Astro here. I was a jerk to you a couple months ago on that wood/grp thing. Thought you were taking a poke at me for being a rookie. Turns out it was the best advice I got. Sorry, and thanx for the tip.

    I'm glad I saw your post about leaving Thailand just in time before the thread disappeared. At least I think it's gone. In my stats I can't find any post I made there.

    Oh well, it would be a mistake to let that get to me.

    You're experience during the tsunami is proof enough to me that we make our own destiny by our actions.

    Many years ago I knew a young high school football player that said his goal was to knock someone down so they couldn't get up. He said he wanted to hurt someone and that's the only reason he played.

    Less than a month later he crashed his truck into the end of a bridge guard rail. It penetrated the cab and cleanly removed his right leg.

    firstly thanks for the advice !
    i live in thailand and finding a stainless wire brush may be very difficult.if i can not find one what problems will steel or brass create ?
    also which one of those solutions is most common and most likely to be available here ?
    thanks again.
