certainly not over, just going sloooooooooooooooooooow.

I've bought a house now and just waiting for that to go through, all the wedding plans are pretty much done for. Progress!

Hopefully we won't have a problem with the length of Autonboat. I was flicking through the MicroTransat rules and I noticed this:

"3.From January 1st 2017 the maximum length (LWL and LOA) of the sailing class will be restricted to 2.4 metres. Any boats between 2.4 metres and 4 metres in length must start the competition before December 31st 2016 to qualify under the Microtransat rules."

So, nathan, does that mean you're back into the building phase??

Honestly, I got a promotion at work and I'm pretty snowed under at the moment.

Although a couple of weeks ago I started another balsa hull, the racing sparrow 750. I was getting a bit twitchy with laying spray putty in to the 2 meter one. Don't think I fancy strip planking that again!

"Spray putty" - that sounds like a construction material of champions... :)
