    Re: Is it a boat? Is it a plane? It's an Astro-Boat

    It will be an astro caravan next week. I have to travel to a major centre for some laser surgery on the starboard eyeball. It will be close enough to 750 miles round trip.  Take the caravan along, make an amble out of it.

    I shall take the Freiberger Yachtsman along, handy little sextant, take a few sights along the way, noting the location with the GPS. Record the numbers and see how I went when I get home a few days later.

    I should ask the eye surgeon to fit some graduated cross hairs to the starboard eyeball whilst he is on the job, could be useful for sights. A permanent bubble installed in the eyeball, now there is a thought.

    Take it easy folks, catch up in a week or so.

    Frank A.
