Subscription levels surge

******************* News Flash*******************

subscription levels hit an all time high.  A total of 3 people will now get an email when i publish this release.

Subscription is easy – just click on the button that says ‘sign me up, buttered scone’ and then put your email address in, couldn’t really make it any easier for you.

Thank you to Verity, Steve and of course my super hot woman Lana.




In the last 8 days i have managed to work for just one day – boring.  I want to be taking stuff apart and putting it back together again.

Today, my highlights will be dropping the bow lines, dropping the anchor, raising the anchor and re-making the bow lines.  whoop de doo !!

The most exciting news this week – i had my first email subscription to The November Archives.  Hurrah for Verity! I have to admit that i really didn’t expect her to still be reading my nonsense.  Best thing about it is, as soon as I publish this, she will be getting an email to tell her that there is something new and exciting to read.  How disappointed she will be !

I wonder if i can get Mr. Brown to subscribe too?  And I would have expected my wonderful girlfriend to support my cause too – come along Lana, get your free subscription here.  its time tp push the subscriptions i think.  Instead of counting hits, lets count subscriptions instead.

All those lovely chums on facebook are about to get a prod.

Verity McCoy – I salute you !!

Le Chef

Nice – i like it – of all the things he could cook, he did listen to my request for cheesy beans and chips – he even threw in a sausage roll too.  I don’t care about the few extra tonnes i have gained since being on board, I am safe in the knowledge that it will soon disappear when i am finished here and of course that my girlfriend finds me hot no matter what (she might not agree to that statement without an upper weight limit!)

Now, imagine your professional pride.  You have spent years creating wonderful dishes for some of the worlds richest people, when a grease monkey like me asks for cheesy beans and chips.  I salute you Chef Curtis!!

Being on Anchor watch at night is good, it gives me uninterrupted time on the net without the distractions that the day brings.  An added bonus, by the time my watch finishes at 6am, you poor sods in the UK and EU are already hard at work. ha !

Half way through the boss’s trip and we still don’t know where we are going form here, USA or Europe.  I want to go home but it is just not my choice.  There is only one man that can decide that.  We wait to find out.

My globe trotting part finally arrived too – should be in my clammy and excited hands this afternoon so that i can finally get the water maker back together and running again.

Apart from that, not much doing – its my quiet time.  Pre-ordered the new Foo’s album today, have a few weeks to wait until it is released – looking forward to that.




DHL deliver !

I am sure it will get here eventually, but for now – check out how well travelled my spare part is.

started in Nice -France, Marseille, Leipzig – Germany, East Midlands – UK, Barbados, Maiquetia – Venezuela, Panama City – Panama, Maiquetia – Venezuela, Port of Spain – Trinidad & Tobago – and now currently residing in Maiquetia – Venezuela once more.

The big question – will it make it to the Dominican Republic before we leave ?

Digging Deep

Some things from the past are just better – a classic example of this is of course the archives on this blog, but don’t take my word for it.  Dig deep into the archives, anything from 2005 & 2006 is much better reading than the droll pish I am currently dishing out.

I am of course a little bored at the moment.  The boss is on which means my work is at a minimum while all the other crew work their arses off. It will swing again when he is gone though – the crew will all disappear on holiday and i will spend a few months on my knees with my head lower than my arse trying to keep things running.

Still not sure where we go from here, Florida or Europe.  My money is on Europe for two reasons – it’s the sensible thing to do for the boat – and of course it puts me within a couple of hours plane ride of Ms. Bos – here’s hoping we find out soon.

Apart from that I have little more to report.  The house project has hit a stall as described in a previous post, the car repairs have more than stalled, they seem to have hit ‘the runners wall’ and I am just days away from contract expiry.  I have of course agreed to renew for an inflated fee.  A very large part of me regrets being sensible and buying that bloody diesel mondeo – i should have stuck my neck out and plumped for the V8R Jaguar instead and not worried about the fuel- infact, if the mondie need more spend, i feel a good hoof coming on and i will replace it with an old shitter for 500 quid instead.  That line of thinking never failed me before!

Enough for now





Bewildered – thats me, but we will get to that shortly

I did promise a short break in writing, but i have a 2 day gap to bring you up to speed.  For only the second time in my life, i succumbed to drugs recently.  Nothing sinister of course but two weeks ago i jumped off the boat and seriously hurt my back.  So bad was the pain that not only did I go to the hospital in St Barths but i also came away with a huge prescription AND filled it ! Anti inflamatries, two sets of pain killers and a muscle relaxant.  the latter of course caused me some concern, i was certain that taking them at night as i got into bed would lead to a huge pile of poo under the duvet at some point during the night.

I am pleased to say though – i am now well on the way to full recovery.

I do remain confused though – when sitting alone with laptop in front of me, watching a movie with head phones in – why the hell do people feel the need to talk to me? Is it not obvious that i am in my own private space, and that can be very hard to find on a 36 metre boat with 8 people on it. WHY – i just don’t get it. Or, better still, come and stand next to me, start watching the movie and talking to me at the same time – fuck wits !!

Good news on the boat front – the mate is leaving in a couple of weeks so i get a new roomie. WHy is that good news?  Well he is messy, smelly and noisey so no great loss there – and she is a lezza !!  Yeah, Dean you sex pest – that made you hard i know.

There is of course one thing better than sharing your room with a lezza – and that is sharing it with two !  But sadly there is only one on the boat.  Actually, sexuality aside, i do very much enjoy her company.  She is a no nonsense northern girl so the language can be frank and often blue but it is good to have someone to talk and joke with that will never misunderstand the banter as anything else but banter. Victoria – I salute you !

Of course, the crew have just arrived in the same bar as me – i sometimes wonder what i have to do to get uninterrupted time alone.  Maybe a little education for them wouldn’t go amiss. If i am sitting alone in a bar – i am doing so for a good reason. I want to be alone in a bar.  Shouting at me from your table on the terrace is embarrassing for us both – would you really expect me to interact?

Anyway – it will all be over soon – the big question is east or west – will we head to the states or to europe – i am hoping europe purely and simply to get back to belgium and see that woman of mine – its been a long time – too long in fact – to be truthful, i haven’t seen her this year and that just won’t do now will it.

So, silence for the next two weeks while the boss is here – then expect some news.  I see my ratings have dropped massively over the last few weeks but i can hardly blame you for that if there is nothing to read now can i ?

Oh – Californication……….sod all to do with the chili peppers.  its a tv series i have just been watching.  I was told it was about a sex addict but i fear the people that described it as that completely missed what it was really about, they need to watch it again.
