Kate: Sounds like you should apply for a new hull number. Is there anything left of the original, or is it a similar case to the 100-year-old axe that had had 10 new handles and 5 new heads over its life?

Kate, perhaps the September CCYA cruise to The Basin would be a good time to show of your renovated 22. The other cruisers will be relieved that your keel will keep you out of midnight marauding range. Didn't know that Clay could translate from the french, even imperfectly, where did I go wrong bringing him up?

I assume the first 22 was a swing keel, which makes my hull number 2 the matriarch of the fixed keel 22s.

So ... a little more respect for two old ladies, if you please, Mr Lee!

As for your innuendos concerning anchors, I hold myself aloof from such scurrilous slurs.

But beware the black dinghy in the night, with muffled oars and snuffling skipper. Lock up your anchors!!! Be alarmed but not alert. Thank you.

Aaaargh!

Well, now and ahem,

Having just consulted the Oracle of the Coracle (David Rose, the onlie true begetter of the Compass Careel lineage ... pace any Duncanson claimants to the title) I find that the 22 hull numbers formed a single series. Hull number 1 was a swing keel and is still afloat in Pittwater. Hull number 2 is Silkie. This was also ture, incidentally, for the 18s. I therefore repeat and reinforce my claim that Silkie is the matriarch of the fixed keel 22s and reiterate my claim to the respect befitting my grey hairs and Silkie's primogeniture status.

The rights of primogeniture include _jus prima noctis_ and inalienable legal title to all portable anchors found unguarded above high water mark (MHWS).

And to this document I hereby affix my name.

Incidentally, the fixed keel 22 after Silkie was Number 7, which is moored only a few metres from Silkie in Brisbane Water. I have spoken with the owner by phone and we plan to meet for coffee.

As for Number Two being a "flop in the mould", I suspect those are actionable words, resented deeply by both Silkie and myself.

My seconds will wait upon yours in the morning. Pistols for two, coffee for one.

It would doubtless, however, be a cool change.

What a crap language but Captain Aubrey seems of the view that they could build ships. One hopes this continues with the Beneteau to which I trust my family for the birthday cruise.

There you go Jimbo - on topic eh?

Now that takes "off topic" to new highs (or lows - though it looks a perfectly charming mutt).......

The message was issued by Kate ten days ago, and still no invasion has been seen. Or have I missed something?

Hey, James! Why is your dog looking so depressed? Maybe not enough salt??
