    Anodes? We Don' Need No Stinkin' Anodes!

    aluminium. No zinc, it gets some sort of scale in fresh water and will become useless.

    Best tool to shorten stainless bolts?

    I didn't know the english word for the big washers, thanks for that. The small ones are indeed, disappearing into the stuff you want them to protect.

    Aluminium and stainless mixed. Good way of making sure you have jobs on board.

    IOR landfills?

    Yes. My lazyness of using a capital for the months. No sorry. No problem. The logistics are always the big problem. I have helped a boat in the past to reach the races. But Cowes-Falmouth and to Kinsale (from Wales, but I forgot where). You need (endorsed) irc certificate. The endorsed is only if you really want to win. Will you stop insulting me? I'm from belgium.

    Cold weather boots.

    I used to sail in riggerboots with wool liner and with a PU sole. Even on wet steel I still had grip. But they are not that high and in combo with my trousers, that was not a good combo in heavy seas

    Felixstow is expanding in Zeebrugge. Because they will not be able to handle the additional containers and ships Last time I checked, Zeebrugge is in Belgium.

    New foulies?

    I agree with you IF you still can swim or be active. I had once a nasty experiance around easter of capsizing a dingy (the capsizing was not the nasty part). The water was cold and i went in the water head first. If my buddy on board not grap me and pulled me out, I was not here. I just went into shock and was not able to swim anymore. I was wearing a wetsuit (thick one) and a dingy style buoyancy aid above my trapese jacket, so I float, but with my face down. And I don't have the same experiance with my self inflating device. It is only a 150N, but it is a strong workhorse. It is used in the industrie as a good lifejacket. Unfortunatly it has reached the end of it's life

    Dylan's New Boat Anarchy

    Elektrical engines in hp, are you all that old? 120v single fase? If you love amps and heavy cables, thats a way to go. Even where i live 3phase is common. Unfortunatly it is not the kind i want. I got 3x230v not 3x400v. I dont like starting a bigger engine or one with load on in delta, my breakers agree unfortunalty as well.

    Do you stay floating on your back when you can't swim anymore? Whatever the reason may be?

    fill tank half with degreaser and go for a sail, choose a heavy sea so the degreaser get sloshed around good. Close the hatches and make sure you take diesel from a different tank.

    Make sure you have enough length in the cable
