    You must be a glutton for punishment. It's one project after another with you. More power to your Elbow, I say. Hope you still have time to sail. That's why most of us have boats......

    I am in a fortunate position to be able to do this, and make it pay a bit to cover the costs. Otherwise it wouldn't work. Just like many of the odd automotive projects I began that ended up sold before I ever finished them to a keen enthusiast with vision, this is happening also with some of the boat things. We now only have two boats, plus the flubber sail conversion, on our hands. But I have been considering building another hovercraft before I die

    My last wooden boat was a labour of love .... I gave it the love and paid someone else to give it the labour! ...

    In light of very sad events, MODS how about keeping these posts by solent clown Mark somehow - it shows such optimism and plans for the future it's heartbreaking, but it would be a shame for it to disappear.

    Perhaps by keeping this thread, we could follow the refit and keep his memory alive. My father used to say "you only truely die when the last person to remember you has passed on....."
