    Enjoy, it a great feeling , give yourself time to get used to length , height and width. Any questions fire away , there's enough knowledge on here to fill a whole set of Britania encyclopaedias :)

    Steady, I am not sure I would go that far.

    But hearty congrats to the new Kontiki owner. I can only suggest don't wait for the warm weather to arrive. We are off to a damp wood in Wiltshire this week, then to Sussex.
