    Vendee Globe 2020

    This actually broke my heart. It makes me want to cry. I feel so sorry for him, I really wanted to see him win. Seeing such a high spirit mashed to a pulp like that is unbearable.
  2. Are you implying this poor wood could one day be dry enough to fulfill that purpose? I hope you're not keeping yourself cold expecting that event.
  3. Oh I'd gladly count on the Universe to fix shit in my boat too. Good to know it accepts dinghy engines as a currency, I was ready to pay with fruit paste. Jesus.

    I'm so gutted for Alex. I would have loved seeing win this one. Both for him and the race, that is currently way too french centric. He must be in shambles.

    Sail cargo for real

    In Brittany we've got local beer and local Whiskey, because we are real, proud alcoholics, not poch parisians ones. He. Also, I cannot access your link. I'd say Canada probably being very well stocked in deicing fluid, there's a business opportunity here, with french winegrowers. Might lower the bill. Funny, we had this exact discussion (life improvements for many thanks to cheap cargo cost) with my significant half, just today. As often , it ended in the chicken and egg status quo: are people poor and starving because of the world wide dirt cheap goods access, or do those exist because people are poor and starving? We did our best to avoid the "bit of both" resolution.

    Sail cargo for real

    I'm not shocked. The cost figures seem actually right, when you consider the whole operation. We may have lost sense of realities, buying our comfort products cheap and asking for them to be cheaper and cheaper. This did not prove to be sustainable. Getting a bottel of wine to run accross the world is expensive. It should be an expensive, unusual, luxury product, and it should not be granted as a common, everyday use product.

    The work I’ve done since’14

    I'm in awe at how much skills and knowledge you must have accumulated. Do you do surveys? The official, insurance proof ones?

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    It's a bit clogged to my taste: But the rest is superb, yes. The overall execution is incredibly competent.That dodger, though, is a weird decision.

    Uglyboat Admiration Society Hang Out

    The boat is beautiful. The refit is beautiful. Then dodger happened. Granted, it's not that ugly, it's just plain wrong.
  11. ...Ok Mads, what are you doing here, don't you have a boat to fully rebuild? Fourth time is the lucky one! :p

    Found this, recently. Thought it might be of interest, somehow. Maybe. Perhaps. Anyway.
  14. In general, the consensus is : you get paid for doing the hard work, you pay to have fun. Crude and lacking subtilities, but it's a good starting point. The boat department is pretty true to that statement, and tends to place what Mads is doing in the "get paid" section. But you're right, to each their own. Mmh. I'll reach him and see if I can get paid to sail his boat, then.
