    It's a 10 minute job for a good machinist to run a thread on a bit of bar stock then bore out a nut and weld it on .

    This is Chris's boat, she's 26ft and glass. She came out of a QLD mould and Chris has no idea what the design is called.

    I had a look below and was quite taken with the layout. Not as roomy as Redwing but more headroom.

    How's the Maldives Rick? Holiday I assume? The diving would be pretty good.

    I'm looking at the weather from the sydney region north. Yikes! We were talking here about last year when the rain stopped around november 25th till mid march. Looks like it's already stopped up there. 26 here today and a strong northerly.

    Maldives are nice but it's a surfing trip, not a diving trip. I'd be enjoying it more if I hadn't spent the last 30 years in offices instead of surfing, and if the swell would drop a bit so my arms and ribs can have a rest! The diving would be great here - very clear water and loads of life in it. In fact a little reef shark hit a fish right in front of me in the surf a couple of days ago, sending a spray of fish innards into the air! I've never seen anything like that before! And there are giant trevally here that ride inside the waves like dolphins - very beautiful! I'll send a couple of boat pictures later - the boats are really interesting. Rick

    Mirror problem! I've just bought a Mirror from Mt Eliza which is somewhere in the dim, dark back blocks of Victoria. I've paid for it but the owners want it out before next weekend as they're selling their house. I can't get to Vic for another few weeks. David (Asrainox) has agreed to pick it up next weekend but the owners want it out before then. So .... is there anyone nearby who would be able to pick it up within the next week and mind it for a couple of weeks? Rick

    Is it on a trailer? I could ask on Facebook. I have a few Vic friends who might help.

    I wonder if it might be worth contacting the Daveys Bay yacht club (Mt Eliza) and seeing if someone there might take it to the club for a slab of beer??? Or whether the owners might do so? From memory they've got quite a bit of space for dinghy storage. 'Can only but ask: http://www.daveysbay.org.au/contact-us.html

    Rick, see your PM's Is it this weekend or next? I only have friday to help and then I'd have to postpone stuff. PS I haven't a trailer either, I'd have to rig my Box trailer for the job.

    How about maybe tuesday?

    I think any time before the weekend of 20 Oct should be okay. I've PMed the relevant details to David and Jeff so if either of you are able and willing to do it, I'll be very grateful! Your assistance with this is already greatly appreciated! Rick

    David, Jeff. Rick just PM'd me and asked if you'd pick up the mirror for him and put it on a truck to Adelaide so I can check it over for him while he is away. I'll send you guys the address. OK?

    Getting away from borrowing Rick's Mirror for a moment, here's a heart breaker.

    I'm clear all next week monday till friday Rick. I phoned and got his voice mail this morning and haven't heard back as yet.
    I imagine I'll need another bod to get it on to the trailer.
    I don't know why you want Bruce to vet it though………………….

    No need to be too gentle with Jeff, just drag it on! I'm not sure what David's plans are. He might be heading to Mt Eliza this weekend after all so let's just see what he's up to. Thanks again for this! Meanwhile, here in the Maldives where we're supposed to have nice 4' waves (i.e., suitable to my current lack of surfing ability), instead we had 8 - 10' faces this morning and my mate just snapped his board in half. He had to go onto the reef to retrieve the front half of it as he had a Gopro camera fastened to it - which wasn't turned on (silly bugger, would have been good footage!). Rick

    I await developments Rick, I worked with two brothers from the Maldives who told stories of the other side of life there. They said they felt embarrassed because of their wealth in comparison with their island relatives which was extreme.

    Just spoke to Mike re pick up. If Asrinox can't do it this weekend I will pick the boat up around 5pm on monday. If he can could he phone first as they are deep in preparations for the sale.

    Hey mate,

    If you can do it Monday, I might ask if you wouldn't mind? I've got a whole bunch of interstate family stuff this weekend that I'd feel quite dodgy skipping out on at this sorta notice. I was gung-ho for next weekend, but if they can't wait, so be it.

    Let me know if it's a success, and if not, I'll keep next weekend open!
