Keep safe (and warm)

I hope that my navigation skills are not so bad to miss cape Horn and land in Australia , even if I learned from the book "Navigation easy, simple and funny"

Arek is on the way already, but promised me to sent e-mails after all flights and transfers.

If I have something new and is not written on this forum, I will do a post.

Last Sunday I've armoured his already armoured notebook with extra sealings to "sea version" of Toughbook ;-)

It mean they are on land.

As I know ship with RIB transport has a delay and will be first at 10th of February in Punta Arenas.

Possible, possible. As Arek writes.

Last information I got, they are somewhere in bush or jungle making free time adventure waiting on delivery.

As they have fixed back tickets at 24.02 lets see what happen

Arek is now out of internet but look this:

http://www.explona.com/Foto/PC070391.JPG

It is made from same material like canvas for trucks and glued to the tubes.

For sure more information first Arek come back or have Internet again.

Front cover

Hi, I am interested in how you have attached the front weather cover to your rib. I have been wanting to do something similar but cant decied on a way to best keep the water out.

Cheers Hurri

Front cover

Thanks for that, I can see much of what I need to do. Is it a permanrnt fixture or can it be undone easily. It would be handy to undo it when not travelling. I thought maybe a zipper arrangement with a flap behind it or over it.

regards Hurri

Hurri, this one was held on by using 1.5" velco glued onto the rubbing strip. It worked suprisingly well and meant that it could quickly be removed. The black velco was hardly noticeable if the cover was removed.
