    Looking great, it must feel wonderful to have her moving under you!

    great progress, its a fine sight to see Her moving under Her own power , its a great feeling is it not ?

    Don´t worry about the boat hook. You can probable track my Progress from the US to Spain just by following the trail of lost boat hooks that seem to be allergic to my hands :o)

    Boathook – any piece of land or other obstacle that gets in the way of the natural progress of dreamers who set their course towards a better place by boat. Lack of boathook – good. Presence of boathook – bad. Neil – it looks to me like you’ve symbolically left your mooring for the life you’ve been looking for all this time! You’re on your way mate!!

  4. Thomas says:

    FYI Neil, it looks to me like you’re ready to go with those sails up. If Beat and Beatrice have managed to sail Aluna from San Francisco to NZ with their tarp sails lashed on bamboo poles with home depot rope (it works, I’m a witness to it having joined them on the first leg) you my friend are ready to go with those pretty tan bark sails. No more pissing around up the river. Portugal awaits. If your mate is a little nervous about the trip grab some crew and go. She can fly down and join you. You’ll all feel good about that! England = rain + storms. Portugal = sunshine + wine. GO!!!!!!!!

    I do believe you are on the right track my friend! Keep it up, you’ll be on the continent in no time.

    Kenneth Grahame was a wise man indeed :o)
