You have now bought your father in law a new workmate I hope, after taking that one apart

3 posts into your forum career and your already sporting a custom avatar representing both of your classes.

Theres a slippery slope to adiction, and I worry youve given yourself a fairly heafty push at the top...

I'm "revising" ergo plenty of time for custom avatars etc to fill the boredom gaps :)

You just need to wait a bit and other forum members will be designing custom avatars for you! ( Hug TT Heart)

Your Osprey might be from 1989 which, for personal history, makes it a museum artifact, but my Contender dates from 1969, 2 years after MY birth!

I've just shaved 20kg off my boat.........."How?" you may ask me?  New crew, simple answer!

(and we are pushing 140kg if we are lucky, 160kg just seemed too controlable)
