And Advertising for a USA boat company on the front

Could have been designs from Shead, Baker, Younger, Curtis ?? (or dare I say Lamont) And could at least feature a 'finisher'.

You make choices in life, I didn't go to the Emirates with Lamont last night.

I blame the photographer for only supplying a limited number of images that would fit the upright format needed for the cover.

This gets worse.

Alisdair sent by Royal Mail the Master Disc to me on Sunday Night - We haven't had a Postal Delivery in the village this week.

I have built all the cases, addressed all of the envelopes.

Not happy as you can imagine.

My neighbour very kindly drove to our local Post Sorting Office and has just given me the film.

My other computers are now burning away - Will send out to all you very patient people on Friday - Thanks for your support for this project.
