    Aha, that is what you are talking about...
    I read the Norwegian newspapers every day and have seen videos of kids swimming at full speed with the walrus right behind them.
    I don't have to prove anything to you.
    Why would anybody fake videos like that?

    Where is the E31 located? What is the hull number?

    She is a Nicholson 55 designed by Ray Wall and built in 1975 for the British Ministry of Defence as an “Adventurous Sail Training Yacht”. Had a huge rebuild in 1999 in which everything was ripped out and watertight bulkheads were installed with a complete new interior, wiring, plumbing, etc.

    Being intended to keep twelve fit members of the armed forces busy, she had absolutely no labour saving devices when I bought her - not even a manual windlass!

    On the other hand, she’s been round the world twice, done almost every Fastnet Race since she was built and had been in continuous use winter and summer for forty odd years…

    Was hoping to get your opinion specifically, on a post I just made. I've read quite a few of your posts and you have great advice (and obvious experience). Thanks. I'll try to figure out how to send you the link

    Well just never got around to filling it out. Will take a look and fill it in. For the record I'm in late 50's, been sailing since the age of 7 , previously owned boats that I've raced and cruised and have a boat on order but won't get it for another 14 months.

    Thank you! However...I do research and I dont really understand the words so I dont understand the overall article. I need someone to talk to me like I am in grade 1 so I can have a rudimentary understanding of what is going on. I read that article that a poster kindly pointed me to--what can happen with corroded keel bolts--and I know the words, but putting it altogether for it to make sense...nope. thank you for any help you can give me--if you can REALLY dumb it down for me, that would be great.
