Harry, as a seaman, I can confirm this feeling when waking up in the early hours, brain confusion...
I also recall it happening after evening naps, waking up thinking I’m somewhere else etc etc


To be honest I not sure if I'm coming or going ATM. Simple plan. Take the boat and go to Ely Folk Festival which starts today, so I get to Ely last week and get a call from a mate. His engine through a rod and needs help.

Turn around pick him up, turn back to Ely to pick up cash, on to March (the town not the month (it's a boat not a TARDIS)). Pick up new engine, turn around past Ely again, pick up dead boat and tow it to Huntingdon. Turn around and I'm trying to get back to Ely before the morning.

If an 8 cylinder marinised diesel engine fitted in the boot of my car this would take 3 hours. By boat it's been 9 days so far at 17 hours a day driving.

This is supposed to be my holiday. I'm knackered.

Harry :-D
Holidays by boat is for the masochists, there are moments of peace and calm, but it is a demanding task...
I only go by boat when others are in charge ;D

For small boats? You bet! :-D
Even though I can manage big tankers, yachts and pleasure crafts are a pain in the ****.
I'd rather justify the existence of back seats, holidays, remember? ;D

I'm back. I am not bothering to read through everything I missed, I'm sure it'll get repeated anyway as things do. I missed Andrei leaving, which is a bit sad, but oh well. Spending a week away from the asylum was nice. Especially since I got to meet remote office coworkers for the first time IRL.

Welcome back. I had to do a double take on "coworkers", I read it as "cow workers". GL must be getting desperate hiring farm animals, does no-one else want the job? :D

@ash1 - I meant the coworkers from the job I actually get a paycheck from.

Yes I realised after I'd posted, but I liked the joke so let it stand.

Ok AR: Has anyone heard from Dex?
