Funny what you come across!

As part of my quest to be able to store the crew's c##p for wider waters, I got the holding tank into place in its assigned locker - a good fit - this weekend. During my research into active carbon filters (I'll need one for the holding tank breather), I came across a video which cracked me up. I'm going to make my own filter - the activated carbon is readily available - and once I've finished I'll post the details here. Anyway, I thought I'd share the video with you. It's adult only (not sexual) and maybe you'll find it as funny as I did, though I'm not going to embed it here. The sound track is hard work (at least for me), and you need to persevere through the first couple of minutes. There really is another world out there....oh, and the comments are a hoot too!

This year's plans?

Well, what's it to be this year? Looks like a visit to Greece, then maybe back to Sicily - I've never been to Greece. Maybe Kefalonia and Zakynthos?

First though, I've got a small job to do - fit a holding tank. I've got the tank now - a good fit for its destination locker. Problem is fitting the breather vent and active filter - I don't want water coming back in, and the foredeck gets wet. Need to research it and keep it simple....
