Well it's all done in the best possible taste!

Yes I was looking to catch gArfie in our jet intake but it was a bit too rough out there yesterday for him. Billy is very nearly right but we still have to find another 500 revs but it's very smooth nowadays which is a relief.


where were you!

After Jonny's comments I took a look at the links provided by Tue, and last evening spent a few hours splicing ropes for my boat, and I am well pleased with my self! Everything was tied on with a bowline, now I have neat splices which do look the business. It also got me away from sheathing my console which is proving more difficult than I imagined, but thats another thread!

Splicing...

I have to agree with JF - not that difficult. Tues links made it v.easy, and I think I got it right first time - it looks good and even the thimble is in nice and tight.

Now that it's attached to the anchor chain, I'll have to see how it fares!!

Cheers for all the pointers!!

Dylan...

P.S. If anyone sees a blue tube/white hull Ribcraft 7.8 floating past with a length of three strand nylon rope attached, but nowt else - give me a call - please!!
