    hoytedow Fly on the Wall - Miss ddt yet?

    This month marks 6 years since the members of this fine forum welcomed me into your midst.
    I cannot express how much it means to me.

    Thank you all.

    Although Hoyte nobody seems to care.

    But buddy if the world is getting you down and you need a shoulder to lean on you can always count on me to - well not really give a ****. I don't know if **** is allowed. If not well, I still don't give a ****.

    I like your humour (spelt properly) and look forward when you add another year to your announcement, that everyone will totally ignore.

    And I haven't been drinking. It is the end of our football season and the final is tomorrow, although tomorrow to you is probably yesterday. I have just put a lining on my stomach so to speak.

    If you type '****' backwards does it translate to 'k**f' here?

    Nothing definite, but I hope to either start a new boat by the end of 2016 or find an old hull and fix her up. Whichever way I choose, the boat will be a small one for sailing, probably lateen rigged, with a small auxiliary outboard for getting into and out of port.

    Whats small. i think about 15 would be a good length. You could even set it up for camping with a cockpit cover and a bit of storage.

    Hoyt, you are more than welcome. You probably have more friends in this forum than anyone of us.

    I hope for something just under 16' and about a 5' beam. Could set the mast with an awning arrangement and mosquito netting for camping. fore to aft seating with conversion into a sleeping surface would be a cinch.

    I seriously doubt that. You underestimate yourself. :)

    We joined the forum in the same year Hoyt, I didn't realise it was six years ago already . . :eek:

    I share your feelings about the forum and I'm glad to have such an amiable person as yourself around here to learn about boats and life . . . :)
