When your done with that, you can come on here and help Smack learn something about sails and waves and stuff.....and help inspire those of us who are sat here wondering whether we could do it to get off our cosy comfortable backsides and DO it.....
Thanks mate.

Actually, on a technical note, I hate XXXX, love other variations though (naturally)

As for Smacker, I think he just has to get out there and scare himself on a real BFS. He could go for a sail with us, I manage to scare most people within a 5mile radius

I have tons of maintenance to keep me busy for ages - the boat hopefully will end up all polished and varnished and I wont wish to take her out in case I get salt water on the hull, spill a drink on the varnish, get UV on the sails....We call these type of boat owners "topsides men" - they often have a posh toorak accent = false of course, they first ask what you do for a living in order to ascertain if you may be in the same social set. I saw one of these 2 days ago - he quoted he was from the RPA. His wife thought our moggy was a Russian Blue. (Unfortunately, pusscat is a common bitsa, like the owners/staff.)

This is probably something which scared me the most, these people are out there.

(please excuse my poor attempt at sarcasm)

Anyway, I had to take a photo to record the poor thing tied up. Like the end of the trip kinda thing. - She has been everywhere from being stuck on a sandbank to being almost airborne between some scary swells. Now, she is in a pen.
