Yall are just crazy buggy loony, knock kneed and liver lipped!

(Quick Michael! Post some boat stuff! Jaysen is surely trolling around!)
Well... I'm here, but I'm trying to be respectful. And it really really hurts.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Good advice cape man, and in appreciation of Jaysen's sacrifice, a small snippet of boat building news .....

The prop shaft has to be lengthened because the new 1.5:1 mechanical gearbox is approx. 4" shorter than the 1:1 hydraulic box it's replacing.

The engine with new trannie departed Sydney Australia this afternoon and is due for collection from the local Noosa freight depot next Monday. The new prop is in freight transit between Brisbane and Noosa, and will be available for pick up on Monday. The propeller drive shaft, which is being lengthened a little over 4", will be available for pick up from the local shafting shop on Monday.

So Monday will be a bit like Christmas in September. :D

After glibly posting about Christmas in September, I've been reflecting on Lou Reed's rock poetic Christmas in February. It moves me to tears whenever I hear it.

That’s pretty! The loss of scale reminds me of a necklace charm that was for auction post regatta last weekend. I bet that sucker wouldn’t work for that particular context.
