G'day me old china :D

Strewth we bin fair rippin while yer bin yakkin with yer trouble and strife an yer tackers. Hope yer flash brand spankin isp is a bewdy ;)

I'll be blowed if Dodgey Donn an his push of bodgey dags didn't get a bit stroppy an stick their noggins out of their hole for a captain cook an a blue with the fair dinkum cobbers. Crikey, stone the crows we chucked on a real bottler but he got the boot back to the dunny. Bloody skites can go to buggery. Hope the redbacks are up fer some tucker!

Good ta see ya back Shane - Knew you wouldn't be gone long.
I couldn't wait to skin the back deck to get wet, so I launched anyway and been to Michigan and Virginia already in it with an open rear - great access/storage. I saw schools of perch through the glass bottoms already - what a blast.
I am, unfortunately, stricken with the bug to make a one man submersible now :rolleyes: .

Having a blast with Calypsee though. I'll have to post pics of the chain drive linkage for steering with the trolling motor - real cool, and quite fast.
