Re: 'This Rather Stony Path' - forthcoming book by Neil Shep

As usual I'm loving the pics. They really make clear just how big the sponsons are, and the shot of DCs head thru the canopy makes it clear just how small the cockpit entrance must be.

Re: 'Coniston' Folk Song

Dare I stick me neck out and say 'I quite like it'. Yeh some of the lyrics may seem a bit trite for some people but the melody and vocal harmonies are solid. The chord progression is nice and I reckon the song could also work in a few different styles, perhaps with bigger guitars beefing up the chor...

Re: Attention World Cuppists

Apparently there are also tshirts on sale...

Re: Pic of the Day

Interesting pic and words today with the stuff being blown out of the frame tubes. What else needs to be done before the transom can go back?
