    Doing some restoration work on the Int'l. Cadet mast, it's been split and repaired but I'm going to dowel it anyway. And it's big and very heavy! If I keep the boat I think I'll adapt one of the abandoned aluminium masts at the club. Still, it does have to fly a spinnaker.

    Having the ability to bring your boat home on a trailer is a wonderful asset! Working at a boatyard is such a drag compared to the luxury of working at home.

    I've always like that style of kayak. But I dont really like kayaking, so probably never going to have one. And yes, driving back and forth to the boat is a pain, for us it's about an hour each way.

    Oh yes, especially since I'm used to Sydney prices where even a weekend on the slip costs a fortune. Almost all my work has been done on moorings, and for the last few years it was a mooring 2 hours from home. Nothing quite as much fun as filling the boat with dust and then sleeping aboard!
