    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I actually bought the plans earlier in the year with the idea of building one next winter, but even with potential repairs this will still cost less than half the cost of building it.
    plan to stick to the inner harbour till I remember how to sail , then slowly stretch out from Kawau to Waiheke as my boy gets older.

    I imagine I would be carrying the lunch if you plan to go anyway with on a laser

    I'm half way round the harbour. Will probably set off from tat north peninsula.
    I will need to have a good look at the rig the guys put on it though, I suspect it's a poor choice for the boat, and will risk fate and give her a name change.

    Rename it "YPH" Barefoot. That way you can say to your mates that you took the YPH (wife) sailing on the weekend and not have to worry about being called a bloody liar.
