    OK foolishsailor,

    I got your first message after I sent my third post. Now I have your 2nd answer.

    Am I allowed to put my Email address in my Posts in code or not because that is tantamount to asking someone to talk to me via Email, what we talk about must be my business???

    Please advise because I have stopped sending bad posts, I have stopped saying I am Launching my Website, I have tried to comply with the rules today but I still get Warnings - It can only be the Email address you do not want me to type????

    I guess using the Private message is OK for Emails is it???

    I await you reply because I thought telling members what boat is good or bag in the Forum for NO payment was helpful YES / NO

    P.S. Can I say Multihull Consultant after my name????? YES / NO

    Looking over your albums, I noticed that you have the same Goiot windlass that I just had installed on my boat.

    Would you be so kind as to tell me what experience you have with this unit and if parts are available. I need to change the wildcat to accept 5/16ths HT. BTW how easy is it to crank in the anchor using the handles? Are spares available? I am using this on a 37' boat having a 14 ton displacement. I assume the unit is more than suffient?

    I remember your boat or should I say the Miami show I saw them displayed back in the 80's. If I remember correctly she was a show stealer. A 42' aluminum boat that could be beached. Great boat!

    your pictures of the rebuilding of the interior of your trisbal found my interest.
    I own a trisbal 36 in Gent (Belgium) and am busy restoring the boat, and will possibly refurbish the interior (and it's inslolation) as well.

    I see you insulated the boat with plates of styrofoam, of which you treated the backside against humidity. What product did you apply ?
    And did you do anything special to prevent for "cold-bridges" (or temperature-bridges) ? It appears to me you put a rim of wood on top of the metal ribs. Is this so, and if yes, why ? I see 2 possibilites: preventing cold bridges and / or providing a structure to fasten stuff to.

    I would like to hear some more detail on how you insulated the boat. Thanks on your reply, which you can mail to jan at bruggeman dot com
