Time................

And then one day you find tens years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.


Ten years ago today that picture was taken. I find it quite scary how that song echoes (no pun intended) the project; something started at leisure as "life is long and there is time to kill today" to now where plans truly have "come to naught" whilst "hanging on in quiet desperation" as i look towards finishing it, and no - i will not beg like so many others now do.

Still, on a more positive note if i knew then what i know now i would've torched the bloody thing given how its come to dominate my life whilst the arse has fallen out of the boat market as well as the wider economy for the job i do.

You live & learn eh?...........................

*EDIT* will be back on it fairly shortly.

I've only been at mine for 6 years and at least I've sailed it during the application of tlc. Not sure I'd have stayed at it for a decade with no ability to get the occasional reminder what I'm doing it for.
You have my admiration for sticking at it Roger.
