    Guys this has been an interesting week with some serious discussion about silly people that overload a boat with tragic consequenses. However it's FRIDAY and I just would like to raise the spirits a bit and get that weekend feeling going here.

    So having said that I was a) wondering what paint you suggest for my new project and b) do you think it would be a good idea for me to act like I was 10 years old and go and swim naked in the freezing cold river and c) can a Lilo make a good boat matress

    Summer is on it's way and it is getting warmer in the garage so that I can at least get back to working on my boat again after a bitterly cold past 2 months.

    TGIF lets go for a beer :D

    Fill me in Manie, what new project ? Are you talking about the mast ?

    Lilo would be a good boat mattress, except when its very hot. Its light, comfy and floats.

    sorry I was thinking of taking on the "dinghy" :D
    :eek: rub the bottom and "polish" the top :p

    Regarding my boat - I have landed a really nice contract working on the new fibre-optic lines that are being layed all over our country. Good business but I am away from home often. Sadly no time for the boat. The old story = when you got time there is no money - when the money is there - no time!

    Good news is the work is stabilizing and I can get back to my boat as of the middle of August CANT WAIT summer is coming :D

    Manie, regarding a- don't know about which paint, but the stripper certainly worked wonders.
