You guys use way too many words I need to look up in a dictionary
Always keep a dictionary beside your desk, especially when dealing with BBP crew (I do) ;)

Ha ha, good effort... This is almost as much fun as when we tried to teach Geordie to our old friend Zaid Al-Obaidi - our beloved diving friend from Baghdad. I mean,how do you explain 'Why aye, man' to a bloke who rides a camel to work? :lol: :lol:

Have to say - it was the best fun to have a laugh and and a beer with our German brothers. Same time next year, meine herren?

We've always said, no problem displaying the boat in the museum when she's not being maintained, conserved or run. At the very least, and this goes back to day-one, she would have to be taken out periodically to have her engine fun and systems cycled to keep her tip-top. Now Gina wants her run at other locations that's a straightforward enough bolt-on that the museum could join in with to promote themselves and the village - it's a win-win and a no brainer.
All we need to do now is agree terms and sign contracts. I've asked them on several occasions to offer proposals to this end but had no response.
