the new rudder boxes weren't much better, only a few of the bolts holes lined up, the top rudder arms came loose and there was no way of getting at it without removing both engines, the bolts that were sent were too short in most cases, they were a different shape to the old ones so we had to alter the wooden mouldings on the aft, still it's all work i suppose. surely after thrashing round britain you would expect a bit of movement in a wooden boat, both the engine had moved also i'm supprised you missed that
you'll have to ask Chris about your free holiday or ask him outright why he hasn't paid you, i'm seeing him this week would you like me to ask him?

Biffer your having your leg pulled a bit here mate,send you over some humour pills.
I did remind him on my boat ,he said, christ you have a good memory.
We like Christ after all it was me that told him about the re run of the races and got him interested.
15 all for the back handed shot about the engine moving.
No need to ask him we are sending Benny round.
we may not have time for the holliday as we are commencing the second stage of restoration on our Historic boat still with its original engines and rudders,oh and 3 bladed props ,i reckon thats what Gee needs.

lacking humour at the moment, trying to get GEE finished and all the other stuff done while arranging a funeral for the old man, off soon to france to have a look at the berth arrangements, oh, and still running the 3 blade props, got the other ones tweaked at hamble props but haven't had time to pick the up, don't mind having a laugh but i'm always on the defensive on here for obvious reasons
