Just imagine the sound - wonderful.


Funny you should mention that Rich, the most uncomfortable boat trip I ever experience was taking a power boat ( a Sealine I think) around the Isle of Wight at 45 knots. With the bows up and bouncing off the waves, it was not a pleasant experience.
The subsequent sail on a Nautor Swan 43 was far more my cup of tea.

You are very welcome to it Steve. It is about 9” long and gold thread on dark green. It owes me nothing...it was given to me by John Worrall years ago.

Send me a PM if you want it.

Sadly, far to many early cars collect dust in museums and in private collections. I would certainly drive a 100+ year old car myself on the open road, but I am probably an exception and to young to realize how foolish it would be.
