So far I haven't bought a single thing. I'm still in the research phase...I actually get over there to Mexico on the 10th of Feb...so then, the buy up begins in earnest. Even so, as far as the boat goes, I need dinghy, outboard, new safety gear, a few spares for the Pacific crossing, and some new 'nice bits'..such as cutlery, crockery, linen het-set'ra: I need a new first aid kit for 'offshore', the life raft needs a service, I need some cold weather clothing, and, I need a video cam to satisfy the journalist in me.
And I hafta buy some chocolate.
And a few boddles of Irish Creme.
And some new undies.
And a harmonica...or perhaps bagpipes just so I can be a bloody nuisance to anyone who plays country and western music.
And that's it!
