    I think David can't find his paint brushes. He's awful quiet! My mother always reckoned when I was too quiet, I was up to something - usually mischief!

    And where's my photos of the D&E Fittings kit for this boat? EH? EH?

    A bit, yes, but I like a reserve -- and remember: my boat was an ultra-thin one with less than normal topside weight.

    David,
