Congratulations Matt

Fabulous boat!! Does it ever feel intrusive in the med having to moor so close to other boats ? You must overhear some interesting conversations ;-)

Re: neighbourly relations

Pauline the boat moored to starboard is a Princess 25m, hull #1. Note the cheapskate fender socks - binliners. Boat is owned by a member of the S.African family that owns Renwick Group, which is the parent company of both Princess and Fairline. He didn't sleep on the boat, just used it as a dayboat. Apparently the only interesting neighbour conversation the other week was that he told his skip to go and be rude to TCM's skip!

Re: overheard conversations

Interestingly...not at all! Also, they'd be in fast french mostly. So your private conversations and nightime er mumbling will stay private, unless praps there was really loud screaming. But say grunting or snoring must be okay, cos i never hear a thing. Mind you, once I fell aslepp in a railway station in france and the policeman had to walk on me until I woke up...

Superb vessel.

How about a little trip for you one day, out through Gib, round Iberia, accross Biscay and on to South coast, calling into Guernsey on the way? We'd all come out and greet you!

Re: Leopards to CI

Not if you use Slutrot.

Actually tcm and skipper sort of plotted this out and it's in the mixing bowl waiting to see what sort of pudding comes out.

Only fly in the ointment is the time it'll take.

Reckon he'll be looking for volunteers to accompany skipper

Congrats on web site B1

Well done Tony, excellent job as always.

With a bit more effort, you could probably do this sort of thing for a living;-)

Bit disappointed that you couldn't have made me look a bit slimmer though, what with all your camera trickery stuff;-)

Re: Leopards to CI

Slutrot cut cost to £23,999!

Watch out for stampede to assist skipper, unless asked to contribute to fuel, I guess <G>
