    oh dear! that boat is so sweet, can’t you just advertise for a sailing mate? or do you have other plans like moving south?

    I’m with gimaha. I say you quite screwing around, rent a houseboat and come to work with me on this new business, see your family and meet a nice girl with lots of toys and a penchant for Xbox and organic food.

    It’s either that or move to Belize and shack up with an old guy named Chackta who likes bananas, rum and endless days of rain that knock your broadband out every 2 minutes.

    It’s your choice.
