  1. When I pass one who looks like he’s a member of an undertakers convention, I just call down the hatch “no idea why they’re so miserable darling, maybe it’s the fishing that does it”. There’s no one down there but old fish face doesn’t know that.
  2. Young lad on the boat next to mine had re-painted the bedroom, sorted out a new more comfy mattress and given things a good airing by opening the Houdini hatch above the bed. All done prior to a planned steamy night with his new girlfriend. After a rainy evening they returned to the boat to find..............................??
  3. Not an easy decision for you to make, hope things work out for you in the future.

  10. Chinese for “clutch takes off easily”.

    In your case, wouldn’t that be cannibalism?......😁
  14. As an aside, I had a friend who was the engineer who fitted the engine into the Waverley. A Scotsman by the name of James Webster. Long gone now but I believe he said it was around the end of WW2.
  15. Ta! Reading it again, might look like I was having a moan, wasn't really, just seemed like everything was going wrong on one little job. When the wet paint one fell, it did of course land "jam side down" 😂
