I've decided that as we do not use the dinning room on the boat that often. That I might get rid of the table and install my organ from home. A bit like captain Nemo on the nautilus. From 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Problems I've all ready forseen include, moving the GPS and radar so I can see where I'm going whilst playing, and mounting them on the music stand. Also I fancy one of those big round windows in the bows, so I can see out. And one of those fan shaped cast iron covers to go over it. One. For when raming the lock gates and, two. Cos it's in my bedroom and me and Tutt's would feel a bit shy, in bed with a bloody great six foot round window behind us.
Also was wondering. And here I seek the help of the illustrious pannel. What music shall I take?

Now if you think about it Captain Nemo was the very first motorboaty. And even better it could go under water as well. Why cant we go under water. Just think of the advantage when it gets rough. Just dive down and cruise along underneath it. Or in my case, dive down, play the organ for a while, then bob up again when its all over.
Also what would MDL do. All we need is a dinghy with a glass bubble on it.
Jump in dinghy, sail out to boat park, dive down to boat. Parked on the sea bed. No need for ropes or fenders.
Connect up with hatch and off we go. Bankrupting MDL at a stroke.
You know it makes sense!!

Course. Matt will be a bit pissed off when we all turn up with our new 18th century, Captain Nemo designed, sinking, motor boats, with organ type music centers as standard equipment. Leaving his floaty boaty. High and dry. So to speak!!

Don't know about the music, but I know where you could get a big plastic bubble, from a lancaster bomber, used for the navigator, to take sunsights, just have to unscrew it from the lancaster at Waddington!

I think you should work on a Reginald Dixon type of arrangement where you come up through the floor of the flying bridge playing your organ

Oh dear, a case for Dr Boomer, poor old Haydn seems to fimally have lost his marbles, probably rolled under his organ!

No need for a transplant...

... our boat comes with an organ installed as standard and Mr B doesn't moan at all about how often I play with it - in fact I think he enjoys it ;-)

Organ Type

The important rule is the type or organ, if you want to keep the other half happy then avoid the old bellows type, I think you will find she would prefer the upright variety.

Is more than one octopus, octopi or octopussies?
