Hi Derek,
I am soon to be retired after 38 1/2 years. I got drafted in 71, entered basic at FT Ord in 72. Been to Iraq twice,Mosul region, and Afghaniatan once, was pretty much from end to the other there. My body is shot, my mind is burnt out, I am definately ready for setting the clock to Island Time. Maybe we will get a chance to hook up on my way down. Leaving around 9 Oct down the ICW, I have 30 days leave to get to southern florida. I'll plan on spending a night there on the way down. Jeff

Hello Derek . Your work is wonderful. It's an inspiration.
I've done a bit of water colour over the years and have enjoyed it very much.

Hello Derek, Just had a quick look at some of your paintings. Brilliant! I am new to watercolour. Decided to give it a go after about a 30yr. layoff from oil painting. Bit tricky, but fun.

I had a look at your work, very nice. Do you get our sailing very often? I am heading down to Florida to visit my brother soon. Hope that the weather warms up a bit.

Hi Derek,
Lovely paintings. Good luck with them. Unfortunately I will need miniatures to fit on my boat. I am currently trying to decorate with my own small photographs. (very little bulkhead space.) I have been trying to convert my books to CD's or some electronic book reader. Electronic picture frames might work, but I have very little power on my boat. But, thanks for contacting me. Do you get out to sea?

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More

B43 Inverter Buzzing/humming noise

Hello -Have a 2008 B43 hull 40 which I purchased second hand about a year ago. been very happy with the boat but have 1 annoying problem I would like to resolve. When switching on the inverter I have the following 2 potential issues:1) Voltage display is low, shows between 102-106 volts2) Humming noise coming from some sort of auto switch which is encased in a white plastic box behind the cabinet where the radios are mountedI only have the problem when the inverter is on, no issue with shore…See More
