    A big project!

    Eeyore here boys. If sitting on your tuffets watching Leo and the parrot for the next ten years rocks your armchair I wish you all well. Nothing to learn here apart from many years from now he may or may not have a yacht that floats. He in reality is not doing anything unique that has not been seen before. Tally Ho chaps.

    True and agree totally. Why sqaunder your life chasing perfection which in my view is the hardest mistress of all. Leo has a full scale completely fucked model of what Tally Ho was once on his hands and the lofting process I am afraid is just the start of a very lengthy endeavour. I don’t want to rain on his parade but boat building on this scale is the male equivalent of giving birth and it can eat you up pretty quick smart. Was at the slip the other day and came across a yacht that a Australian couple built 700 kilometres from the coast out of steel many moons ago. He and his wife successfully completed the build and they had one hell Tasman crossing before settling in Auckland. As their family grew he decided he needed a larger craft so chose to quarter the yacht and lengthen and widen her. Many decades passed and the marriage failed bitterly. The husband latterly died and the yacht in now very poor condition passed to his son who completed her and now offers charters on the harbour. Not exactly sure that any of that tale applies to Leo but life is far too short to be landlocked with a parrot and a yacht that does not sail.

    Just more unnecessary structures/obstacles in the harbour. Here is the joke. https://thespinoff.co.nz/auckland/27-11-2017/whatever-happened-to-not-one-more-metre-council-approves-huge-wharf-extensions/

    Bit of a joke really. Wynyard wharf is plenty long enough to berth the largest of cruise liners as it is.

    Laura’s Guppy was a ketch rigged Gin Fizz. Certainly did the job for her.

    'Poo jogger' exposed......YCMTSU....

    Andrew Douglas Macintosh the national quality manager of Aveo was doing his job brilliantly, poohing on the streets and poohing on their customers. https://www.smh.com.au/interactive/2017/retirement-racket/the-price-of-freedom/

    If you got it for a dollar I would still be convinced that you have paid too much for her. Timber yachts have a alluring aura about them especially ones that are pretty to the eye but why take on someones neglected decaying obviously unloved burden. Life is short and there are plenty of yachts out there that are ready to rock and roll.

    There is a documentary about Sterling called the Pharos of Chaos but I cannot source a link and apparently it is all hash and booze talk although the web the throw this up.

    Japs kill pregnant whales

    Wish I was. IB thanks for clearing up the historical food myth I like many have laboured under a misunderstanding there and considered obstinate whale slaughter just cultural arrogance.

    Aus lifts minimum wage to $18 an hour

    Hah this place is awash with comedians. Try living on $18ph. Here we have been battling to establish a living wage $20ph no joy though apparently the 1% that own everything disagrees with the concept that the slaves are allowed to live sustainably.

    Quitting smoking (almost) 1 year in.

    You are still a slave to a product. Get totally clean and enjoy being so. Believe me there comes a time when you are free from fags or vape and it is simply a fantastic feeling of freedom and health not to mention wealth.
