Many thanks CalebD for your kind reply. I will indeed stick around. After all, I can chat with UK people on daily basis but how often do i get the chance to speak to others from our small planet?

The Navigator is not quite mine yet. The owner appears to want to pass her over slowly (reluctantly) which is understandable for a first boat I guess.

Hopin I don't get seasick on the channel crossing but will pack my Stugeron just in case. Only been mildy seas sick once around the infamous Portland Bill so not bad in 900 miles in very changeable UK waters methinks.

Anyways, thaks once again for the welcome. The only problem I can anticipate me having is the time difference. It's the wee small hours of 3am here in the UK and I really should be sleeping! Over and out for now... zzzzzz

There's even the odd (some say very odd indeed) Australian but the powers that be are trying to hush that up.....

Hi DrifterJill,

Moderators? I did post a reply to DrifterJill earlier on this thread but it and something Jill wrote seem to have disappeared? Perhaps I posted it in the wrong place? Please tell me if that is the case?

Moderators could you also tell me if there is a time limit on the time it takes to write a post? I've tried to post reply's on a number of threads here and the site does not seem to allow me. It says I'm not logged in but above in blue it tells me that I am logged in so I'm rather confused.

Also I apologize to moderators and DrifterJill if I'm asking these questions for moderators in the wrong place!

Thanx

John

Moderators; I now have found the disappearing posts. Jill had replied to me on both her introductory thread and mine ...

Oh do keep up John...

Packing and preparing for my very first Channel crossing today so am just hoping the weather and waves smile down on me! Anyone got any tips? Even if it's just what wine/cheese to buy in France...?

(Have packed the Stugeron. Just in case... )

Dress in layers. It will probably be colder than you expect.

Try to stay dry.

No skinny dipping enroute, please.

Yes, it's very complicated, isn't it?
