    I was saddened to hear about Joao (psail). A valued and respected member of the SOL community. I offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends. Fair winds mate.

    Not a request. Slimey Gobspittle.
    Spell it right frilly drawers or I’ll tie your guts for gaskets with a slippery hitch.
    Slimey, master pirate of the Southern Seas. Not a sun tanned pretender or a namby-pamby, pond-paddling, northern hemisphere would-be, who shakes at the sight of a proper ocean.

    Hawk - spit - fart – aaaaaaaah.

    yer monicker be set, ye impertinent clay-brained pignut

    G'day Bimmer,
    Thanks for the thought.
    I often see the chat and feel I might enjoy a PR - participants obviously do, but I have never considered doing one.
    I think I do enough SOLing as it is.
    I prefer not to suggest times that might suit me because I am not prepared to make a commitment to participate.
    Meantime I will pay more attention to PR times and may join you in one.
    Regards Billy
