    I could turn all your pictures right side up and post as many as I can in one post if you would like that. I just got Windows 7 again because the CD Key was found and it is easy there with Windows 7. :)

    Greetings
    Rather frustrating couple of weeks that have just passed way to little boatbuilding time . Last weekend we went to witbank dam with a friend who has speed boat and what with working late in evening at work and since last week Friday we have no power no Fault of ours but all in all did maybe 2 hours of building and got ten sheets of marine ply. One good thing is my boat is right outside my front door so I can look and dream

    Colin you just have to hang in there and get the boat to float. Once she is on the water and you can cruise around, the inspiration comes back MEGA BIG TIME to do the endless list of interior things to finish.
    See you soon!

    To true Manie
    All this bad weather and other comitments was getting me down but I pulled through and am working every night about 2 to 3 hours and as you say I will focus more on getting her to float and worry about interior a bit later .tunnel we have a couple of locals here that wire there townships like that for free electricity
