    I'll keep an eye out for oval ones. Do they need to be opening?

    The falling domp seems to have abated here for now. Also the bruuze. Pity it's so cold and dark outside. I don't fancy trying to install a 6 metre length of gutter just now.

    The seagull hit the main sail fast enough to flatten right out. I hope it sprung back like in the cartoons.

    It's amazing some of the things you don't see when you first look at a photo.

    They'll still be expensive (maybe 70% - 80%) but you can do better than that for the Davey ones if they're the ones you really want, or probably a bit better still for our own local ones. However, they're by no means cheap items -- especially the opening ones.

    PM me if interested further.

    Actually Classic Marine are quite a bit cheaper Peter, by my calc's anyway, those prices you are comparing are between opening and non opening ones. I think the smallest of the opening ones are about AUD120.00 cheaper to buy in the UK from Classic Marine than they are here through Classic Boat Supplies (GBP306.00 v AUD645.00).

    I'd vaguely been thinking of buying them over there when (if) we head over to the UK and Ireland early next year and now that Rick has raised the subject he has me thinking of that again and what to do about it.

    Sunday 10 July

    Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower along the coastal fringe, near zero chance elsewhere. Light winds. Overnight temperatures falling to between 7 and 10 with daytime temperatures reaching the low 20s.
    Hoping for a sail on Sunday. Kerry was going to come but she fell over last night and hurt her coccyx. It's a shame because it's pushing two years since she last came for a sail.

    Came across a Brother industrial sewing machine today for only $200. I'm selling some more stuff on Tuesday so if I top the mark and it's still there I'll buy it.

    Yes please! But I won't buy them if they're too dear.

    Why not give him a call 02 6674 0099 and enquire without mentioning me. If its within your ballpark I will see if I can better it. Ray is a fascinating guy and has enough stock to easily open a museum , much of which he rents out to our GC movie industry.

    You will be up against WB two second scratch finishes and one third. which would have become a first and second if handicaps had been applied. In this last race Glen Slight's TS was just too far ahead to have changed anything.

    I'm going back tomorrow first thing and if the other bugger hasn't bought I am. A friend of mine wants to buy my Singer for $50 so I'm a quarter of the way there. Actually I think I will have enough to get it tomorrow.
    This is the model.

    Yep done my sums...it's mine!

    Interesting point. I perceive a Yankee to be high cut sail set on the forestay , in comparison to my staysail which looks more like a low cut 130 genoa.

    Once WB reverts back to her original Gaff Rig and looses 3 foot of the mast it will look better.

    I'm also going to take one of the rescue boats back up to the bottom end of Stotts and work out just where the deep water is.
