    I can confirm that I had to buy a round and was forced to wear protective headgear whilst talking to half of the crew, jimi may provide snaps.

    Incidently, if you lot die of starvation 'cos you didn't catch fish can one of your relatives please return the tackle that I've bought for para?

    I thought er the fish eat the hooks don't they? Or they may as well - we've got twohooks and catching more than two fish is pretty unlikely with me on board.

    Ooh that's a bit harsh.

    Para got some decent gear for fishing from Chris_E. Two lures and massive thick line. I liked the bit where chrisE sed he had been fishing for years. Para said that so had he! So ChrisE said ok I mean fishing for AND CATCHING fish for years. heehee

    Erm, ok, I think that's it interms of useful info. I am also gonna bring a gaff hook thing for hauling up realy massive fish.

    Para and i did establish that

    a) Para's swmbo can ring him up on the sat phone but it will costim.

    b) I don't much care we end up in Europe. So falmouth is not a definite must.

    Er 6 or 7 should do it.

    Don't forget you can't get emotional and run round the deck holding aloft a couple of burning flares if we end up in some godforsaken Iberian port instead of Falmouth.
