Re: Proctor Pictures

Sorry David - my fault - was doing two things at once, the other thing was trying to sell a caravan! I've now corrected the link in the post above.

Re: Xmas greetings and next projects

I'm doing a few small jobs on the finn, aiming to make the tanks water tight, and a bit of a revarnish.

I need some off cuts of marine ply to make plugs for holes left by redundant fittings... Any suggestions where to get some?

Re: 2018 events

We could do another 'picnic race' on BH MON 28 May... Joining in with the club event already programmed. But this is only a week away from hunts and as we didn't have many visitors last year I'm thinking we have a year off this year?
