Ben and Phil - thinking of you on the high seas. Realise the bum and the arms must be getting sore by now - hope the boat is standing up well and that you're using your DIY skills!
Its been icy and snowy in southern England, causing major hold-ups getting around in Cornwall - lots of accidents involving cars skidding on ice etc so atleast you're not freezing your **** off!
Keep it up

Hi beach boys. Great progress well done!! I have got another quote this one is T.E.Lawrence"All men dream:but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." Well done guys make your dreams come true. Chris
