    Merry Christmas to all the Anoraks

    Thanks for sharing Mr. Ed! We visited family in Galway this year and travelled to the Aran Islands, Dingle, and Cork. Beautiful part of the world. I want to come back by boat like you. Tim

    Jeanne Socrates - nonstop solo RTW 2018

    My favorite boat repair tools.

I've got a bit of an addiction to abrasives and sanders, and the Mirka Deros looks really nice. Not sure how I'll be able to sell a...
