Don't tell me, you invited him round for a barbecue (the 2nd he'd had in two days by the way) , and the next minute instead of a fully fitted hall carpet you've got a carpet runner with a strip missing from each side retro style . Luckily we have wood flooring in our hall so we were safe. Did wonder why he was carrying a Stanley knife with him tho', didn't think my sausages would be that hard to cut.

Erin's, for example? If I was him, I'd be checking the bit under the stairs....

I knew you had us all sussed and logged in the Willk database. But how did you know I don't live in a bungalow? Under the FOI act, I'm considering requesting a copy of all data you hold on me

Do that - I can pop it on here for you

Unfortunately the database is down for a day or so. Due to a misunderstanding, Polwart's cousin got filed as his sister and what with the new red lines and arrows and all, it's ruined one whole wall of the bunker.

I will have to redecorate

I'm picturing the underground war room in the Dover cliffs with little model ribs being pushed around on a big table...

A few pics of the boat assembly- aluminium hard floor installed (not as difficult as I expected) with rubber matting over. Outboard is just clamped on for now, after sea trials I'll decide on a height then bolt it. ATV bag from Tamarack can be seen, fits nice. Although the fuel bladders are in I'll be using a plastic tank for now. I'm changing the QR fittings on the bladders for hydraulic ones which don't leak but problems with different thread types etc mean I'm going to have to get creative with the tig torch

If it wasn't blowing SE F5 then I'd be out in her now, so I'm chopping up the cargo net I bought for the bow as it was too big for me instead.
