    Watching you brings back memories of an adventurous youth. We were just as full of life then. Enjoy!
    Jim,

    I don't mean to be argumentative and cantankerous,
    but I am getting older and a bit crotchety!

    Addendum; AND CRANKY

    Re: alu sailboat buliding

    Struggling with welding in Salvador Brazil. First our bottle from air liquid in Tenerife can't be filled at air liquid company in Brazil. That is crazy. Cost us 600 euro. Then we manage to rent a bottle but that was dirty argon. Now after second bottle it works again. The green is the one we own.

    Any admins reading this? I'm been happily posting since 2009 under pictures and projects but see I'm been moved under sticky forum. Is it possible to be unsticked and moved back to pictures and projects?

    Newsletter April 2017
    Dear all
    We are now in Salvador Brazil on 12 degrees south after 21 days of pleasant crossing from cape verde.

    As on old sailing ship crossing equator line Neptune came onboard to baptist the crew, thankfully she didn't use tar and feather as in old days so it was pretty easy to clean off the barber foam, then they was eligible to have a anchor tattoo with name of their loved ones. Some had problem remember their boyfriends name for a second it seems
    Rest of journey from 0 degree to 12 degrees south was with a couple of days of calm weather until we hit the easterly wind on the south side and then straight for Salvador.
    Salvador was discovered in 1501 and soon became the main trade route for Portugal and a slave trade port. I'm curious the route they sailed empty back to Africa to get more slaves. Going straight east is hard so they might go south to catch the westerly wind down there. Portugal had some 30.000 voyages shipping more than 4.5 million slaves between Africa and Brazil.

    Anyway our plan is going south into colder climate again. Hopefully all way down the south American continent before we have to decide if we want to explore African side or west side of south America (if wind and weather permits) .
