7:20?! Who listens to the radio on a Sunday at 7:20? You'll be talking to yourself! :lol:

You have got my grey matter going now.......

boat came up 2001 ? Think Mike became full time project involved early 2009... call it January for sake of ease....I arrived November that year.

had you attended every Saturday 2001 - 2009 and put in 8.5 hours (like we do now....minimum)...roughly speaking (and i mean rough)

think we are around the 3978 hour mark.... give or take.

we know Mike attended before 09 but will write that off for ease. he has done about 3094 hours.....

but that's just Saturdays, if you then factor the other two days he spends at shop you need to add a further 3640 hours onto his count.....then you need to factor the countless hours he has spent researching at home.......its building...

its all neither here nor there as both of you guys have most likely done less than Bill and John who were there constantly from the gun going off.


now perhaps folk need to take heed how much hours have been quoted.... that's for just two people involved..... granted those figures are very fast maths and hold little accuracy..

if you were to put a minimum wage to those figures, i would shudder to think the cost !

Or how about our Barry - with us for what, three years now? Virtually every Saturday of the year, three hours drive each way, 300 mile round trip. Do the maths and work out the fuel cost and dedication there!

Mind you, he's not in next week. Slacker!

Ah you see I went from Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday to just a Wednesday or Thursday. Then all the time doing the website and the years of weekends etc looking for the thing so to coin your phrase I was there well before the gun went off
