What a crappy day for sailing, cold northerly wind gusting up to 25 knots. Itís what you could call a day that sorts out the Men from the Boys. A lot for yachts getting knocked over, real heart in mouth stuff when the yacht is heading for the island in the middle and a strong gust not letting it come up to the wind.
A couple of new boats today.
First is the EbbyBail
gas fired steamer with a lot of attention to detail. I think the pictures
donít do her justice, it was a pity that it was to windy to fire up the
boiler but I was very impressed by the detail in the cabin (apparently
Phillip got some funny looks at the toy shop searching for the doll)
Looking forward to a calmer day a see how it goes on the water.
Hey Barbie got a heap
of laughs but unfortunately there was another bag on the deck but the prop
and the wind got a hold of it and the offending item went through the
propeller, with the contents being spread all over the surface of the lake
(us a bigger nail next tine Geoff) its amazing what you can do with in
Boggie Board and a thematic fan (normally mounted in front of a car
radiator to help on a hot day)
Anne has been at the lake before but I have never had a chance to get a
picture if it. Not a bad looking model with a single prop in a fixed Kort
Nozzle with twin rudders.
