    Thanks for having me!

    I see that a Finnish are the first to chat with, feels great as I'm a Swede living elsewhere. I plan to buy myself a sail boat end spend the rest of my life at sea. My uncle spent winter 1940 in the front I'm still with a knife he changed with a Finnish companion. I've never been there it's said to be a beautiful country with many lakes, one day I'll come to see for myself.
    I like to wish you and other members a pleasant ending of 2008, and a Happy New Year!!!!!!:)

    Happy new year to you too. I met a friend in arms of your uncle in Norway -85 while fishing salmon. (there weren't so many friendly units -40 in Finland) or maybe it was your uncle :D who knows..

    I'm actually building one to make the very same thing as you are.. I'll blow the whistle and salute when we'll find the same mooring..

    Distans, welcome to the mad house, hope you get out of here what you expect, on a whole a pretty good bunch of guys - of course every now and then you get a bad egg in the basket, but amongst the seagoing fraternity there ain't to many - remember in this world theres two kinds of people........those who go to sea (or have spent many years going to sea) and the rest! No doubt over the years you'll find what I mean, best of luck to you in all you do, happy new year and may 2009 be a better year than the last one, no matter how the last one fared!
