    Rear Admiral Robbob SIR !!, I've been following your build blog intently and am in awe of your methodology, attention to detail, clear and concise photos and description, patience, especially of your good lady wife !! ๐Ÿคฃ, (or does banishment to you workroom suite both of you ?? ๐Ÿ˜œ) and finally your innovative and inspirational solutions to the inevitable problems that arise. Most of ALL though EVERYONE is waiting to see the video of your craft on the water !! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Jbkiwi, thanks for the advice, at present I don't anticipate doing anything that requires much electrical plumbing, but I'm trying to think about the process using the KISS principle !!, as I've said I'll be picking everyone's brains A LOT !!.

    'SAGA' the handrails may have been ROBBOB, but what was more impressive was the well thought out process to achieve the final result!! ๐Ÿ‘, I was also impressed with your description of that process and the accompanying photos which helped enormously in understanding of what you had written !, I've just looked back at some previous posts and realised that ALL you posts have that same quality, informative, easy to follow, just enough humour, helpful photos !!..every one, a masterclass ๐Ÿ˜€
