    Back on the water today with 9 nips sailing. Flash flooding yesterday so did not know what to expect as we sail in a flood catchment area. Needless to say two of our buoys had almost washed away. Interesting though (check the photo) water level had risen to the top of the embankment on the right. Where we stand would have been about 15 feet underwater one day ago. No one ran aground today.

    The yellow boat in the photo is a nip with a rounded glass hull. Goes well. Owner also made one with Chinese, another interesting 'wee nip'

    "Is the tugboat about 18โ€ length like the small Carol Moran ? "
    Hi Ron,
    What tugboat?
    Did you accidentally put your question in the wrong thread?

    Interesting reading through those websites - son was saying that on the first trip, they actually had 1350 odd people, 168 dogs, several cats, a pet rabbit, think some parrots and a ferret.

    Below decks smelt terrible with the animals but there was a job to do. They did not have time to re-provision before travelling from Sydney (most of the crew recalled from Christmas Eve celebrations and had to be sober) so the crew was on a fried rice diet for several days allowing the passengers better fare.

    He with his job did not see much of them as being in the Electrical field spent most of his day below decks.

    One thing is for sure, he is not in a hurry to have any more fried rice for a while.

    As long as no one gets suspicious after all these trips to the florist....

    I simply overlapped the joints and used standard two sided tape. Works well.

    Re - Cellophane , Yes, looking back at your purple and yellow photo, s`pose like you have done ,using cellophane clear tape on the joints, the over laps would provide "batten like" rigidity.
    I see another trip to the florist next week !
