    As long as he doesn't say "Marlowe, ok" then the dog won't eat anything. I've seen it on video. He has the dogs trained to eat on his command.

    Okay, I've paid the sods and got the photos back in my blogs. At just under 15 I'm happy enough. Although I will use Flickr for future blogging.

    Flickr have been bought over. I suspect they will go down the charging route too eventually. I will look into paying Photobucket for a year to see if I can make an alternative back up.

    I made a wooden clamp that fits onto the seat. You don't need a mast foot with it.

    I got the "Observer" version and thought I'd solved the problem in this thread.

    Here is a photo of the "Dog's Balls" solution.

    I crossed it once on a windsurfer from Antrim to Ballyronan. It was a strong northerly wind so we planed all the way across and back. I wouldn't fancy it in the canoe.

    Best yet. Love the editing. You got the continuity spot on.

    I have to agree. I didn't know they were available. I have an sp3, a heavy brute to portage. Only made possible by the brilliant yoke. So I'd recommend it from personal experience.

    Such an eloquent blog. Don't worry about picture quality, they more than covered the message conveyed. That was a cracking tale, and an epic journey. Already looking forward to your next exploits.
