Re: Girt by Sea now Girt by Dirt.

Hi guys, well done is my thought.
As mentioned a good keeler owner will always try find the way out without assistance unless it really is needed.

Nice sail across to Black Point on a good day, glad you enjoyed it and it all ended well.

Well, the wind blew and the boat accelerated down the face, as I surged along at the bottom of the wave, I glanced down a...

Re: Diesel engine for a trailable?

If a modern diesel leaves a pall of black smoke in its wake, there is something seriously wrong with it. Some of the modern diesel motors are stunning to drive. Have to totally agree here.

The stuff is everywhere and if one knowingly disturbs it they should take precautions. But how far can you go ? I believe just one fibre can be the start of the disaster.

Re: Who do you blame/thank for your addiction?

Not really to do with why I took up sailing, but my father used to race hydroplanes. First one I can remember was a V8 that came apart on lake Burumbeet which I think is a crater lake and very very deep, in fact too deep for divers to recover anything. Second one was powered by a smaller in line fo...
