Some references say that the brass triangles that supported stacks of iron cannon-balls on sailing ships were called monkeys and that in cold weather the metal contracted, causing the balls to fall off. The derivation of this phrase is difficult enough to determine without such tosh, so let's get that oft-repeated story out of the way first:

Good point John,
Talking of Brass Monkeys is cold enough to freeze them off....

another nice day at drivers.... started to install the VHF Radio but time beat me, going to fit the lifting eyes next week or sooner weather permitting..

going to order some new seats from Gav and start the re-fit ready for next year. Not going to do the round the island race still a bit nervous so going to concentrate on getting her working well.

still smiling though
