    Is this the Figaro III?

    So back to the drawing board. Maybe the drains later added on, to the lower side of hte channel, so when boat heels the water will not flow into the back ??? No mystery lid to see though...

    However it works, they are nice grabbing on to. Still not clear were it goes... ah they must have extended the hole inside the boat to get the angle we see. If the hole on the left just visible goes to the white outlet in the black side... or maybe its an optical illusion. So why the lid is for ? Can no spot it on the deck till now. (and some one points me to the obvious , big laugh.. . Damn I want to sail one... even with a weird bolt in a radii. Which is from the endcap of the jib traveller.

    Brexit, and all it entails

    Think of all the pensioners coming back, non Eu member, only emergency health care, rest in dear old blighty. Oh, and tax agreements over second home, income in a foreign country etc is still not sure how that will work out. But more important is the Troubles, please leave it by peace.

    Funny you say that, after he was beaten for the second time, and war had costed millions of lives, the English made the first proposals to unify Europe. So actually the English are the first European Union lovers
