    #48300 - i just thought - 'That looks like my boat" and then my heart started to race......

    Finally got my survey report yesterday - insurance this weekend.

    She should be fine thanks Bruce. Checked her docklines on Saturday, or maybe it was Friday, all good.

    The four course races where held on the weekend .
    WB and crew did well placing third after which I enjoyed one of the best Southport to Tweed Heads passages in light NE.

    Just finished my haul out today at the Tweed Slipway, just a shame it could not have been before the race.

    Well I found that the mooring I ought at Port Huon actually exists, so that's good. It's in a nice little bay.

    Looking at the forecast for the next few days, I'm thinking it'd be just right for Bruce to set off from here and head south.

    That's a lovely spot. I could handle cruising around that area.

    I stupidly started a full time job again a few weeks ago. No time for anything important. Couldn't even take Pixie to the Classics Regatta.

    Excellent news (about the mainsail).

    What sort of breezes did you have for racing on the weekend?

    If you mean me I'm afraid I'm not thinking of ever doing anything like that again. I'm tired of it all.

    Mind you, I can see merit in heading the other way at the right time of year. If only I had a boat...

    All the rewiring that I wanted to do after installing Masina's new engine is just about complete now - I still have some solar gear and the anchor windlass to go - so I've moved on to other things. I've just completed hooking up the freshwater system so that I can now flush the heat exchanger with fresh water after running the engine. And today I cleared out the lazarette where I'm installing a second fuel tank. Once that tank's in, I'll remove the old tank and make sure it's all okay. The area of bilge under that tank is now the only area left that I haven't really checked out so I'm looking forward to that.

    We are in for some weather, high tide coinciding with the worst of it overnight. 130 kmh winds forecast, I filled the chainsaw and put a new chain on.

    Speaking of which ..... Neil, have you or anyone else seen The new book of Ed Burnett's designs? I saw some shots years ago of a couple of yacht interiors that Ed designed and I thought they were really beautiful. I'm wondering if there's much on interiors in the book.

    So sad that Ed died. He was truly a great guy and enormously talented.

    If I see any old pond yachts fly by, I'll know where they came from!

    Stay safe Jeff, hope it doesn't cause any damage there!

    Rick, at the WBF the owners / builders showed me over the 'Lucy' and gave me a cd of the build. I have since bought a copy of the Ed Burnett book ,so much talent.
