Due to too much demand in Houston, Texas for shipping, the container has been delayed.  I'm now thinking I will see my baby (i need to think of a good name for her) in a month.

I think he’s saying the battery box can be used as an anchor! That thing looks a beast!

The water tight box looks great!!  And it’s crazy how light the lithium batteries are.  I work in telecom and I was use to picking up huge lead acid batteries.  We just got replacement lithium... went to pick one up and almost fell over backwards.

Was scheduled to pick my baby up on Wednesday.  Self-isolation has put paid to that.  Will be next week now  ;)

no longer will you have to swim out to the pier to retrieve your snags, you can paddle over to them now!!!!

I hope you get pulled all over the channel by giant fish Giles.

I am away in Suffolk for the week and have to do a few hours work before I launch - fishfinder install, mode to the trolley (so that I can get it into the scuppers single-handed) etc etc etc.  So it will be some time the week after next.

Possibly "Sugei".....
