It is funny what people see the start as Spring as. Most see it with daffodils coming out, the start of various wildlife mating off to produce the next clutch of young. In the boating world it is quite different.
Its when the covers start coming off boats after the winter. The cleaning material come out and pre season clean and polish start. Folks welcome you by saying merry christmas and happy new year as the last time you saw them was last October. The first tales of the planned cruises are starting, I love the start of Spring.

Virus part 2

I managed to give myself a virus. The warning is when you get a message about you getting Trojan's,worms and various other virus's DON'T download anything. My computer said it was an anti-virus 360 a anti virus programme. In fact the anti virus programme was the virus. It screws up everything. I tried to download Spy bot and other anti virus, but wouldn't allow me. You can't upload anything via CD or DVD I did manage something by an external dongle, but by then my system was to badly affected.
I managed to find a local computer whizz at Itsgonefunny.com. Helen who runs the company is based in Reading. She sorted out all my bugs and viruses and it didn't cost the earth. In fact when I got the bill I had to double check to make sure she had charged me enough. If you have any problems with your computer ( I rarely recommend anyone however...) she was great and suggest anyone go and see her.


I am sorry I have been off line for so long, but my laptop got a computer virus. I will post something about it shortly. So others don't get affected by it.

Back Cabin

At last I have decided to do something with the back cabin. I would like a traditional one with a bed o'le and table cupboard. I got someone in to give you me a quote and as he was leaving there was another bloke on the marina, who I had not met before who was a carpenter who had a look as well. We shall see who wins the race to get my money, as soon as I get the boat through the BSS I should be back on an even keel.
