The web is a treasure-house of tips, inspiration and for common waste of time. Without becoming in touch with some websites from my boat constructing colleguees I doubt I have not started with this att all. In turn I will now try to carry on the principle of sharing experiences by documenting some of my project in this log.

This site has to be considered as a part of this hobby. The main point is that it is fun to do things by your self.

Finally I have to apologize my former english teachers and everybody who has to read these pages in english.

2008-07-16 It is amazing how accurate algorithms Google ads use to analyze the content of images. Actually this is a joke which I won't explain in english.

The picture is part of a screenshot I took while looking at a picture blog from an other Wickström and old school boating fan.
