    Re: That's a lot of bikes!

    Nothing wrong with rental. I run a little sports car rental company. But it's not sharing. Not a communist, I just have this thing about the abuse of words.

    Re: Antipodean Boats Connection

    Speaking of adventures, I read a few reviews of mid range, mid priced MIG welders. All made in China of course. And all good until they are not, at which time they become landfill. A lot seem to have...

    Excellent score Tom. Cleaning out and disposing of an estate is no fun. I can even understand Peters family just dumping the lot. Tragic though. Glad you saved that box of goodies. My brother and I...
  10. Re: What is the upper size limit for singlehanding, for someone in his sixties?

    Depends a bit what rather hard is I suppose. But i suspect very well. Because the fall lines weave back and forth through the sail itself, the sail will develop subtle fold lines. I think full length...
