    Rebreathers are like women; they pretend to love you, whilst taking all your money and trying to kill you.

    From last week on Skye, being meaning to send them, a Viking ship canal for cleaning and boat fettling. Better late than never , the very tip of the peninsula off the south end of the Cuillin Ridge.

    Also saw dolphins and a Minke off the end that day.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    All four of the lockdown project model boat restorations have now been in the water.
    "Gannet" was the last and we sailed it yesterday. I say sailed, but there wasn't much wind really.
    Lost the rudder control at one point, but it just sailed serenely over to the side of the lake, so there no new wrecks in Stowe Pool, Lichfield,Staffs.
    A 1/6th scale model of a Robert Tucker designed 18ft Silhouette, it's pretty close to how the early plywood Mk2 boats were built(many in people's back gardens) in the 60s , before they switched to a GRP hull, and then to the fully grp Mk3. There are still many around today. Image taken by my wife.

    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    The answer is Yes, he is, and No, he doesn't. He probably wouldn't do/need to anyway in a boat like that. Despite the vagaries of scale building meaning the ballast weight and sail area don't equate, it's turned out pretty stable.

    Working on a small event in Cornwall last week, I decided to take a "here's my ice-cream in front of the view" picture while walking around St. Ives. Big mistake!
