    This is a good question, I would be interested to hearing the answer from any skiff guys who have been using this rigging for the last few seasons. I was worried about my fat arse hitting the rigging and really never gave this a thought but the point load would be far higher from a boom through the gybe than my body weight.

    Another question to post in regards to rigging- Going through the photos some have lowers other do not. What are peoples thoughts on this? I was told just the other day by a local sailor that the goose neck fitting can be fitted to the king post (with a bit or re-inforcing added first), I I go down this path why would I need the lowers? I am days away from pulling the trigger and ordering a new mast So am curious to peoples ideas and opinions before I order. Thanks for the offer Dan I am in Aus and the shipping may be killer! I am keen for the carbon rigging, will see what the masses think here.

    Hi Steve When you are using rod rigging is this SS or Carbon? I am thinking of going down the carbon route for the new machete but am a bit anxious about it. My main issue is if I get flung off the boat and go through the rigging, I am to sure about the rigging holding up to this. Some contender guys went down this path a few years ago and thought is was the greatest thing since slice bread. But the word I am getting back from the c-tech guy is they have all gone back to SS rigging again as the contender has a minimum weight on the mast and the Carbon rigging was making them carry to much corrector weight. Do you have any thoughts on this?

    Not a single mention of the drivel released these days - "5 Seconds of Summer" WTF is that crap! Kayne West now lets talk overrated, this guy is the king. The Beatles stopped touring and went to the studio because they saw no point in playing to a crowd of screaming people who did not hear the music anyway, they figured they could achieve more in the studio, which I think they did. By now way are the Beatles overrated, they where the leaders in change for the music industry.

    Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on UK television with British TV host Anne Diamond. He used the word "manyana" (pronounced "man -yana"). Diamond asked him to explain what it meant. He said that the term means: "Maybe the job will be done tomorrow; Maybe the next day; Maybe the day after that; Or perhaps next week; Next month; Next year. Who really cares?" The host turned to Albert Yatapingu from the Gumbaingeri Tribe (aboriginal) who was also on the show. She asked him if there was an equivalent term in his native language. "Eh" he replied, "In Australia we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency."

BOY OH BOY, HOW INCOMPETENT AND INEFFICIENT ARE THE YOUNGER GENERATION THESE DAYS. WHO DO WE HAVE TO BLAME FOR THIS – OURSELVES – THE PARENTS !!!! Note to self: 'Cancel credit cards prior to death! Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die! This is so priceless and so easy to see happening - customer service, being what it is today! A lady died this past January, and ANZ bank billed her for February and March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and Then added late fees and interest on the monthly charge The balance had been $0.00, now is somewhere around $60.00. A family member placed a call to the ANZ Bank: Family Member: 'I am calling to tell you that she died in January.' ANZ: 'The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.' Family Member: 'Maybe, you should turn it over to collections.' ANZ: 'Since it is two months past due, it already has been.' Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?' ANZ: 'Either report her account to the frauds division or report her to the credit bureau, maybe both!' Family Member: 'Do you think God will be mad at her?' ANZ: 'Excuse me?' Family Member: 'Did you just get what I was telling you . . . The part about her being dead?' ANZ: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.' Supervisor gets on the phone: Family Member: 'I'm calling to tell you, she died in January.' ANZ: 'The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.' Family Member: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?' ANZ: (Stammer) 'Are you her lawyer?' Family Member: 'No, I'm her great nephew.' (Lawyer info given) ANZ: 'Could you fax us a certificate of death?' Family Member: 'Sure.' ( fax number is given ) After they get the fax: ANZ: 'Our system just isn't set up for death.. I don't know what more I can do to help.' Family Member: 'Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. I don't think she will care..' ANZ: 'Well, the late fees and charges do still apply.' Family Member: 'Would you like her new billing address?' ANZ: 'That might help.' Family Member: ' Rookwood Memorial Cemetery , 1249 Centenary Rd, Sydney Plot Number 1049.' ANZ: 'Sir, that's a cemetery!' Family Member: 'Well, what the #*+##* do you do with dead people on your planet?'

"Is your dad or mum home?" said the farmer. "No, they went to Canterbury" said the boy. "How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?" asked the farmer. "No, he went with Mum and Dad" the boy answered. The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other, and mumbling to himself. "I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one, or I can give Dad a message" said the boy. "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter Suzy pregnant". The boy thought for a moment... "You would have to talk to Dad about that. I know he charges $500 for the bull and $50 for the pig, but I don't know how much he charges for Howard."

    Fred came home drunk one night, slid into bed beside his sleeping wife, and fell into a deep slumber. He awoke before the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter said, 'You died in your sleep, Fred .' Fred was stunned. 'I'm dead? No, I can't be! I've got too much to live for. Send me back!' St. Peter said, 'I'm sorry, but there's only one way you can go back, and that is as a chicken.' Fred was devastated, but begged St. Peter to send him to a farm near his home. The next thing he knew, he was covered with feathers, clucking and pecking the ground. A rooster strolled past. 'So, you're the new hen, huh? How's your first day here?' 'Not bad,' replied Fred the hen, 'but I have this strange feeling inside. Like I'm gonna explode!' 'You're ovulating,' explained the rooster. ' Don 't tell me you've never laid an egg before?' 'Never,' said Fred . 'Well, just relax and let it happen,' says the rooster. 'It's no big deal.' He did, and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! He was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg -- his joy was overwhelming. As he was about to lay his third egg, he felt a smack on the back of his head, and heard..... " Fred , wake up! You've shit the bed!" Getting OLD just ain't what they said it would be!
