Well done fella. Agreed, you should be proud of getting to the end, there's always so many people to say it won't work or can't work, it's too difficult, too many problems with holding money etc the list goes on. Well here's one in the face of those pessimists!! What a result, pulled together by so many people with you as the facilitator/catalyst.

You will leave a legacy, you will ultimately be remembered for a great thing. most won't achieve that in life.

So looks like I've got it till then, got some bits that I'm not happy with that I want to do.
The story for me hasn't finished with the boat or macmillian, it seems I will be doing something with them, they think that my attitude to my little brush with cancer could help others face the treatment and the aftermath that you are left with, early days with this but I'll help if I can

Fantastic work

Alex and Biff, as Paul says, the pair of you have been the driving force behind a fantastic achievement; it's been a pleasure and a privilege to have contributed in very small part to this remarkable project.

Keep those energy levels buzzin' guys and I'm sure the ultimate reward will be handsome indeed.

Rib 4 Macmillan

Alex/Biff hopefully you've seen the article in PBR, should be a good bit if promo for Macmillan. 7page spread. To be fair, HMS was true to his word, he put it in and put my "whole" article in.
