3 Years on. . . .

Haven't taken any pictures of Venom this year (except the first one), but a couple from last. I was busy cutting a hole in the deck today (Chris will know what this is for ) and repairing some rubbing strake that was starting to lift away mid ships.

(Nice krarft, BTW. Très chic! )
Wasn't it the Gaffa tape brigade starting the "show us your SR" back in about 1977, think it was the first site on t'internet.

Quite glad I missed that thread Think you must be confusing this with some other forum of even less repute.

V nice flagpole cum nav lights i assume? Just the sort of thing we were looking for a few months back pity something like that would have been absolutely perfect Was it a marine fab job, or did you manage to find it off the shelf if you don't mind me asking?

P.S. Stephen, I don't suppose you remember Paul Sweeting and his wife? I know them very well now, and happened to mention you getting the same boat as us when discussing ours with him a while back. He sends his best wishes

P.P.S. Some detailed pics of Into the Red coming up next week when she'll be back in the water

Was built to my own design I'm afraid. RH and LH ones were built not just for the nav light brackets but for the substantial brackets that fix them to the transom. I've got some loops welded on the back. The bottom ones are where the elephants trunk cords go though and the upper ones for flags etc.
