    What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, cold. Today I'm sitting outside in a t shirt.

    Gary, the bag looks good but don't forget to put webbing in two strips around the bag, to form handles. The dilly bag also looks good. They're great for tools etc. when working on the boat, up the mast etc. I'll order a couple of those but they need to be made of strong material.

    The wind has arrived here, I just went to "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" and had to move quite a lot of lightish fallen timber off the road coming home, not very cool yet but it's forecast to get cold.

    BTW "Hunt for the Wilderpeople" is recommended !

    Do you mean the ditty bags? If so drop me an email on size: ie diameter and depth. Material is sail cloth and two loop handles. Actually I have the The Ditty Bag Book so I'll make one to the specs in that.

    The webbing was supposed to go around the bag but I stuffed it up.

    It's all sail cloth Tom. I don't know how water proof it is, though as a collapsible bucket I'm sure it would serve the purpose.

    The Ditty bags in the book look like something out of Woodstock.
    I think I will stick with fairly plain and functional.

    I'll need to track down some more webbing. Ebay has some good deals. Round or square ditty bag?

    Well it blew it's ring last night. This morning it's still breezy but the temp has dropped again...just a bit brass monkey.
    Off to Redwing today for a few days that will hopefully see a lot of work done.

    Your quite right sail cloth is only water repellent and water will seep through eventually, depending on the cloth weight and tightness of the weave.

    I found a whirligig from our roof in the pool this morning. I got it back up on the roof only to find its flashing bent up and all the lower rivets had been sheered. A new cir-clip, tech screws and silcon and job done. Couple of branches down and lots of leaves, particularly in the pool.

    BTW that's a beautiful logo Gary!

    A decent sized gum went down by the house but fell the right way fortunately. Our firewood for next winter!

    The power went off at 9.30 last night and just came back on at 3.30pm. A long outage over most of the Tweed .

    We finally got home about 2am this morning, NZ time. The flight out of Sydney was delayed about an hour, as our aircrew were on a flight out of Melbourne that was delayed due to high winds down there.
    On the plus side, the tail wind reduced the flight time to 2:35, Sydney to Christchurch.
    We had a great trip, saw a gaggle of migrating whales off the coast at Bondi on our last day, and really enjoyed meeting some of our Aussie neighbours.

    I am glad it fell the right way Peter, I suppose asking it to fall next to the wood shed would be pushing the karma ,better of down the bank.

    Thanks Duncan. The rot is looking like it will be an easier fix than I had thought. Unfortunately I have to take the boat off the wharf to do the 20-30 minutes worth of sanding I need to do.

    Last year I had one fall so close to the woodshed I just sliced it up in situ and put another sheet of iron on the roof. Of course it fell uncomfortably close to where I had been working all afternoon……….

    Spent the whole day with my nephew Matt changing the fuel pump and filter of Sheila's car. Most of the day on my back on cold concrete. At the end of the day there is not a single bit of improvement

    Im guessing it wasn't the fuel pump then. Any time you want to use a hoist let me know. Much more comfortable. My son got some water in his fuel from Bridgewater (ha ha) petrol station. New filter, x3, cleaned injectors, new coil packs, finally did the fuel pump, which involves completely removing the ute tub. Seems to be fixed. Trial and error, repeat until error is replaced with success.

    Thanks. Many times we cursed not doing the job on a hoist, but getting the car to your place would not be easy either. So we are back at square zero - at least we thought we had a clue on Friday. Not sure if the car even has a fuel pressure regulator, but if so, it is a candidate, along with the ECU. It's harder now to diagnose as it won't stay running long enough to get diagnostic data. Plus we 90% flattened the battery yesterday getting fuel out of the tank. Sigh.
