I sincerely hope our US colleagues don't take this comment from a hypocritical, hyperbolic and punctuationally challenged Welshman too much to heart.

We can stand the ribbing by Codprawn, speaking of ribbing... Latest update on the Hugh/Codprawn meeting of the ribs? You need to put some pictures up soon... once some of the American contingent on this forum gets some of their boats up and running you might tire of us posting pics and comments. Being Yanks and all, you know how we can be... insufferable lots, rampaging across the internet we invented!

You MAY have invented the "internet" but the problem is what everyone calls the internet is actually the World Wide Web which was invented by a British chap called Tim Berners Lee.

He created WWW - HTML - websites - the whole lot - if it wasn't for him we would still be using telnet!!!

Telnet... didn't a Scot by the name of Bell invent that? Wait.. I am mistaken.. he invented the telephone! Once he moved To the United States. Now who gets to claim that invention? Draw?

Possibly!!!

Often the original inventor is forgotten and the most successful businessman is the winner.

For example Eddison is often credited with inventing the electric lightbulb when it was Joseph Swan about 20yrs earlier!!!

Also Singer didn't invent the sewing machine and Hoover didn't invent the vacuum cleaner - nobody remembers the poor buggers who did!!!

Coming back to your original question - weather has been really bad here for a while - seems to be at least a force 6 everyday. Have also been waiting for some dials to be fitted and for some time off work.

Should be picking up my boat in about 7 - 10 days - I hope!!!

I bet there are a lot of poor bastards throughout history who did not get the credit they deserve for inventions/contributions they made. Much less the money...

Look forward to seeing additional pictures/posts. I am sure you are feeling as antsy about your boat as I am about mine, actually probably much more so as it is new to you, I ran my boat about six weeks last year, Winter is too damn long!!!!
