You owe us more pictures of your boat and descriptions of the things you are doing to it just as soon as you get them! How about that for starters? As to the comment regarding what you owe us, it probably is in reference to the amount of money British Petroleum is making in this country, not that I would single them out personally, Royal dutch shell and all our wonderful Yank oil companies are making a killing too! Isn't it wonderful?? Now, given the close political and cultural ties between the U.S. and Britain I for one tend to think of us (us being both countries) as joined at the hip, so no bickering gentlemen, neither of us is going anywhere... As to Codprawns comments, I personally take no offense being called a "Yank" I am a Yank from Cod's perspective, he seems to dole out his quite opinionated comments without prejudice, he seems somewhat nationalist, but most people are about the country they live in, take the Iraqis for example. At least Cod speaks what he really thinks, like it or not, I appreciate his honesty, don't necessarily like it all the time, but this forum does not exist to satisfy my likes and dislikes, or anyone's for that matter. It is about the water and the boats gentlemen!!
