    What's at your bird feeder?

    Mornings at our house. They wait on the top of the tree using branches they have pulled bare for the purpose, watching. The food arrives and then it’s an hour of frenzy. Sparrows, goldfinch, yellow hammer, blackbirds, mynahs, nz wood pigeon, doves, fantails and the occasional Tui Later the waxeyes will come for fruit and made up drinks. Everyday

    Favourite Boat pic?

    No, this was Sundreamer, the designers own boat. The wrecked one (Stratosphere) was built first

    First thing you're going to do?

    The other way around. The boat is in Queenstown, and needs to come back to the Coromandel. Bought a launch to keep the wife happy

    uh, a jib traveller ?

    Makes sense especially high up. Alternative is to run it to the bow or through a whole lot of friction blocks

    Why "DTS" Instead of "Eight Bells"?
