Clock's ticking

I need to have a volunteer to take over as El Presidente by the 20th.

I went to the doc this afternoon and I've had an entirely new pathology added to my already lengthy list. Soon I may be needing a guide dog and a white stick and I've never met a Labrador yet that can type, never mind the spilling and pinctuation;

I really am serious guys - I am no longer able or willing to do the few simple tasks required to keep the site running. Can I have a volunteer even if he thinks that he can palm it off later. It isn't that difficult altho someone with computer skills and an interest could do a lot with the "raw" site.

Over to you, Blue Leader (I was RAF, so that makes sense if you fought in the Battle of Britain like me.)

  • Screws to mount downrigger

    Hi guys. Iím going to mount the downrigger on the port side of the boat on the gunwhal. I will use a scotty mount that stays permanently on the gunwhal but allows the downrigger to slide on and off when not using. Can I check are ss self tapping screws fine? And what gauge screw would you recommend? Iíll post pics once done. Thanks

    I'd feel happier with ss nuts and bolts myself, assuming it's accessible, but remember my boat was called "Unsinkable II" ;-)

    If using screws, drill a hole that's nearly the screw gauge, or you'll strip the hole. Perhaps some of our oily-handed friends could put it better. I just put folks to sleep.
    When I was a boy....
