Hi John,

     Folks have been asking about your here at Manjack.  We are now settled in where you used to anchor behind Rat Cay on a huge anchor that was dug deep in the sand for the season.  Nev is fixing a dinghy, I am doing some gardening on island, and we plan a sail to grocery shop three islands down in a few days.  I was thinking a few days ago that most nights I think back on the day and feel that I have been happy and joyful most of the time.  I guess living on the water makes it that way.  Want to come for a winter warmer?  Love, Ann and Nev

Hi John,


I hope you are well - how goes the building?

John,

The book looks great, I may have to read it!

In the meantime, if you ever need an extra pair of hands, by all means, send me a message and I'll come on down.

Thanks for your message.


Bob

I hadn't considered that one. I'll most likely do the Wharram sliding window.

Probably use type 1 PVC for the rails. Have you ever seen Wiley ports? I have some on a small gaffer that I built. You can leave them open in the rain and still get some ventilation.

John,

Check out Jamestown Distributors in Bristol, RI.

Hope all is well with you and your build.

Hi John, I'd wonder if you could send me your mail address, there's a couple of things I'd like to talk in private.

At 8:19pm on February 18, 2014, Ricardo Aráoz said…

Pls take a look at your inbox

At 4:37pm on February 19, 2014, Ricardo Aráoz said…

I've already sent them. Tell me if you don't get them.
