Good to hear Ratz has a good home. Shes a cool boat - and quick! Had a wild ride in her when the tiller broke clean off - while on the blast with the kite on - she kept tracking straight and we managed to keep her going through the finish line before dropping the kite with no wipe out.

 

I think she has a double cockpit, a new self draining one above the original not-self-draining one!

 

I remember Lachie explaining to me that the inaccessible void between the two cockpit floors is where the boats love is kept. There used to be a small gap, but an actual rat climbed in there and died. So they sealed the gap and contained the smell. Can’t wait to lift that floor….. I only remember this because as soon as he’d finished the story, a very drunk Paul (Danger Mouse) who was staring at Lachies hot new girlfriend during the whole story, without breaking eye contact with her he threw up on her lap.

I couldn't imagine him doing that -he was such a refined gentleman. Here he is at his finest:

Went down to Ratz today, took the covers off, lifted a bunk board and disturbed the largest ants nest I've ever seen. Had to abandon ship! Not sure what they're eating..... Unless they're a special breed of ants that can live on rot. If that's the case then life is probably pretty good for them!

not sure if nz has carpenter ants, but they are big buggers who like to live in soft rotted woods

 

unlike termites they can't actually eat the wood but they will chew up soft woods into sawdust sized bits and then cart them off to throw outside and leave termite looking channels and egg galleries etc

 

leave some ant poison for them if you have a week or so or just spray the hell out of them and come back next day with a vacuum cleaner
