    I think there may be a few ways around the visa thing. I do hope his employees are "on the books". I am also hooping the family thing isn't too bad.

    Jon Madison plastic welded at least his water tanks on Julia. He is a heck of a craftsman, but so is Leo.
    Leo's tanks did not appear to have baffles. Which is "baffling".
  34. Re: One insane englishman trying to rebuild the 1910 gaff cutter Tally Ho, in WA. (VI

    I think he is putting way too much tankage in. 400 liters would be plenty, and he should have the tanks further forward. I like daytanks, but that's just me.
