    I would say you look pretty normal to me in that last picture. Just finish the darn thing so we can go fishing. You're supposed to put pictures of your boat up. What kind of a forum will this turn out to be if everyone post pictures of their hands...

    Hey Fanie launch in Feb 09 Bud you and M and W will defently get a invite. I am going to finish the electronics once she is floating. I have booked the dolly for mid Feb .She is going to sit on the dolly for two weeks to soak. Should be fun. I have taken a option on a 45ft steel Roberts Ketch you guys can look her over for me.

    Yup going strong. Had to pop down to Durbs for some Sika.The shop is usually open on Sundays get there .They cant open on Sundays any more too dangerous.**** I have had enough of these idiots that cant behave them selves. The ******* things are robbing boat supply shops cause contrary to the belief held by the rest of the world(remember sanctions and embargoes and so on) the ******* are too usles to be gainfully productive for the betterment of this country

    Hi Manie
    I’m trying to remember where I saw / heard of an easy cat. I think it was in Richards Bay. I will be in your area soon and will pop in. I spoke to Fanie the other night so we will all get together .I am defiantly working on the boat this holiday. Will post pics soon. Have been cutting planking for the deck the last few days.

    Eh Butch, don't carry heavy planking ok. Rather get the wife to carry it, you may hurt your back :D

    If you have an idea when you're coming this way it could help me plan some things around here.
