  • The original quote is from Kenneth Grahame's Wind In the Willows: "There is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats."

You are way ahead of me.
I should be good by next week though.


I was thinking exactly the same thing about Easter the other day. It seems that (excluding mad winter sailors like me) Easter was always the official start of the sailing season in the UK. Here in the home of the brave and the land of the free, not so much.


You have a saloon on the boat? Fantastic!

Adam Turinas

Soundbounder: Good luck with that

TMan: I suspect that it's that the UK weather is so unpredictable all year round that people are used to sailing in bad conditions. A month either way matters little

Michael: I do with swinging cowboy doors. yeeha!


Well Howdee Pardner!

Are we ever grabbing that beer?


You must have put in many weekends this spring. Happy to hear about the outboard.
