    Today I had a plan. Pressure washed the decks on my boat, green algae growing. Bit of a mistake, some paints come off. Doh. Nice and clean though........  What are you doing today?? - Page 5 3025408739  And a visit to Screwfix, 3 tubes of mastic and some sanding discs. And a visit to B@Q, 3 bags of sand and a bag of cement. Next weeks jobs sorted then, after Patsys head gasket.

    02 Skoda Octavia Estate Elegance 110 diesel. 2 lady owners from new, full service history almost mint. Needs head gasket got it for £625. Fecking insurance company knocked £400 off cos it needed a new rear bumper where some uninsured kid hit her a couple of months back. Argued the point that they would have had to pay for that anyway had we claimed but to no avail, ended up calling the assessor a twat over the phone so Patsy had to calm him down.  What are you doing today?? - Page 5 3025408739  Ended up with £1150. Engine was shite anyway and was due a new cambelt and MOT. 
    Anyway she now has a sensible car you can get passengers and shopping in and will tow smallish boats and my 2 ton trailer for the same MPG as a Beetle. Lucky girl. Now, who wants to buy a nice rusty diesel Merc estate?  What are you doing today?? - Page 5 294053457

    Been nice and sunny today and sheltered from southerly winds in my yard. Cylinder head nearly off, just the exhaust to undo. 6 hours so far. I can do one on an Austin Cambridge in one hour. Progress they call it.  What are you doing today?? - Page 5 1498946960

    Dont forget the Riley. I know a Joe Riley, of pie key descent. He will insist on singing their special songs when pissed. Nice bloke though nonetheless.  What are you doing today?? - Page 5 3025408739

    Been to the docs today, had a cough for about a month now and can't shift it. Just a dry irritating hack which is annoying as hell. Doc says nowt on lungs, which was nice, just a wintry cough. If it's still there at end of the month go back and see him. Antibiotics no good for it he says. I'm taking Covonia and Strepsils I said. Yeah, keep doing that and Fisherman's friends are good he says... What are you doing today?? - Page 5 1498946960

    Sailors dont always get on with fishermen you know. They keep leaving their lines out to get tangled round the prop the buggers, poorly marked and no chance of spotting them in the dark.

    Yeah, it stops the engine dead. Some props have rope cutters on them. Two alternatives, call out the lifeboat (usually crewed by fisherman he-he) or dive under the boat with a knife. Not happened to me, yet.
