Apologies - I realised after I had posted that it was the wrong word over here. An "Artic" is the same as a "Semi" ie a big truck. It is, of course, short for "articulated". A haggis is quite different and generally does not give rise to near death experiences, though I understnd that there have been occasional shooting accidents during the haggis hunting season.....

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

Sadly I removed similar from my morgan 35, grey pvc, maybee a little brass tube, all "gooped" into the hull, seemed original through my forensic analysis during dissection. it may be a poorly executed copy of the manufacture's technique, because mine was well adhered

I'm reeeeeeaaaaallllllllly enjoying the idea of punching my PO in the head

Big trucks are never articulated. Right. "Large Cars" and "Big Trucks", never. Now those Lorries and such as could never run with the big dogs, sure, they could be articulated. I suppose even a "One Shack Mac, With No Shack"

But not a Big Truck.

p.s. Nice sculpture. It speaks to me.

It's obvious from the picture that your PO and my PO learned from the same teacher. What we need to do now is find said teacher and lock him up before he can do any more teaching(and maybe hit him in the head a few times for good measure). Do you think when people do things like this they stand back when finished and think "man, that's a really good job I did"?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sadly, that looks a lot like the valve on my diesel tank... got my fingers crossed on that one. I'll have to remove half my boat (engine, battery compartment, cockpit drain plumbing, steering) to fix it... ick...

I imagine that they do and isn't that very worrying?! I am with you all the way on seeking out that teacher guy and making sure that he does no more of this terrible stuff......

Where do we start?

Our thoughts are with you, Sailboy. At least mine was easy to get to....
