 ^-^  Sea Monkey, thanks for the post, but I think once this one is done,it may be time for a little relaxation I have been building constantly for the last 3 years or so, and S W M B O retires at the end of August   ??? ???so a couple of holidays are on the cards me thinks.
I have ideas for a couple more for later on another old Sun tug  she was just called SUN and possibly the Sun II as she was built as a coal burner, but we shall see,  all the best  Geo
