I didn't think Julia Roberts was into fur, but then one never knows, does one...
She can share my pelt anytime she wants. Hang on , isn't she the bird who married and divorced Lyle Lovett ?
the woman must be a bit thick although maybe he was having a bad hair day.

Last time I was in the riggers workshop they had this cast stainless shackle that was a work of art. Bought the damn thing and it now lives on my desk at work. Havn't figured out where to use it yet but It is a lovely thing. It's a nice thing that so many boat fittings are such lovely pieces of industrial design.

Now , let me get back to overthrowing the capitalist hegemony would you.

I am looking at buying a Sk Watermaker. Does anyone know anything about the company or watermaker ? Seem like a good unit that uses over the counter parts.
