That's right. You guys are backward to us. Our warm months in my area are end of March to the beginning of November. I guess I should say opposite of us.

You should have said we’re “backward” from them. Actually I’m sure you should find a good word to replace the word backward. Is the edit function still up?

Yes and nope. It timed out before I got back home. No editing my post.

Sydney winter was between 2-6C this morning,varying with location. But it`s sunny, and will hit 18C today.
When the US/Canadian brief summer ends,we`ll be warming again(too much, say the warmists). Winter equinox past, our daylight is lengthening, yours is already shortening.

Ran out of things to do on the electrics until next Wednesday so I finished off a little bit of upholstery around the window and then started on the window trims

Looking good.
Remember to put the plug in the bilge before you put the boat in the water. SMIRK
You are keeping up with the written wiring diagram?

This arvo at the boat I fixed off some trim for around the window. Next week I’ll run the router over the leading edge, chuck on some filler then give it a sand and a couple of coats of undercoat. Unsure of colour. I might paint the whole lot white. Will look good once the blinds go in.

We knew that. It's just RTF's twisted sensayuma.

By the way, on that thruster issue. I think you'll find, with your already extensive boat driving experience, that you won't miss a thruster. Solstice is lighter and smaller, with less windage by far than my Clipper (CHB) 34, which weighed 11 tonnes, yet after about the first 3 times going out and back in, I never missed a thruster at all.

That's a deal even in the US.


When you retire to Solstice and start to cruise full time, we'll leave the light on for up here in the US.
