Congratulations on installing new main engines for your Forum.
I can see that indeed, things will move along at flank speed
after the 24th.

As you mentioned though, I do need to figure out something
or some activity for taking my mind off my being denied a daily,
no, hourly attention to and from the Forum. . .what's a tugboat
builder to do. . .hmmm.

Lets see. . .I can't go to the mountains because it's the middle
of Winter. I can't sleep for two and a half days. . .I know -
movies. I'll rent movies, movies about the sea of course,
and they will take me off to the adventure of the sea and I won't
even notice that I'm not getting my tugboat information fix.

Yes. . "Treasure Island", "Hunt for Red October", "Titanic',
oh. . .oh - the entire collection of "Victory at Sea". Yes. . .
I will be alright. I have calmed down already. I can do this.

Thank you Tugmaster for steping out and buying new mains.
I would assume that this upgrade will cost a tity bit. . .

Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com

I don't believe that I have seen a Flux Capacitor installed that quickly.

We will all have to consider investing in new FAST computers at this rate, I doubt if my old PC will be able to keep-up in the race........... ???    ;)

Good to know there is an upgrade comming.

At least it will give most of us three days extra building time so I better make us of it.
