sticking with the slug for a few months yet

the slug still has a summer of sailing ahead of it

going to go up the humber - a roughish sort of place

the Minstrel needs some work on it

I am only dumping the slug because of the engine - it still runs but is stuck in forwards - I can live with that but it has cost me so much money and time over the past five years

the new boat has an outboard well and ebay is full of great second hand outboards that can be slotted into place in seconds

people were complaining about too many films about fixing engines

and I had some of the most miserable moments of my short life staring down that hatch wondering how I am going to fix the sucker

one of the mags over here has also decided that the Minstrel will be a great boat to use for tests compaing 5 hp saildrive outboards and as it has both a bermudan and gunter rig that would also make a great item

the fact that I can tow it to their base in Poole for the tests is also an advantage

I love the slug - it has been great

but the beast has been an absolute burden


inboards are for rich people

real sailors use outboards

discuss

I am also hoping that a prettier boat will look better on the dvd covers and it is those that pay for all those films you have been watching for freemans

and by the way - the films look better on a telly than they do in a tiny window on a laptop

Should sail circles around the dear old Sluggette, who we are all going to miss. I'm guessing you won't.

Gunter rig .... wow. I havn't seen one of those since I sailed a Heron with a mate on Sydney Harbour in the 1970s.

Re: Led fetish support group

So sad to hear another fine sailor has been LED astray.
My addiction was halted while trying to figure out a thru hull arrangement for the RGB microprocessor controlled underwater array. On the bright side even that would have been less expensive that the amazon torch.

When do we find out the details ?

KTLers around the globe will be beside themselves with glee, though a trifle blue to see the stern of the Sluggette.

I have bought one of these

Oh, I wondered if your snit over the slug's diesel engine a few days ago might result in something like this. Now you must provide all the interesting details. And what is happening to the slug? Surely you aren't keeping both!

Well thats my justification for liking the old nutter.

Now, DW .... we also have quite the collection of LED lights but I'm still not ready to go the whole hog. For interior lighting applications (remember that is my job) we now have LED halogen replacements that are damn near indistinguishable from halogen when you turn them on. I've not yet found LED for the boat interior that excite me.

Hey! I'm going to drill small holes every 6 inches on my whisker pole to mount led's so I can see if it's set right in the dark!
