its replacement was a sieve by comparison...
It didn't latch back onto the seals and it was a poor fit and full of holes. Don't worry - by the time you take her out next we'll have sorted the vacuum gotcha and made a much tighter canopy.

Right on the money Bill

You have a very entertaining writing style Ted, it’s almost as if we were hearing you speaking in person. Some fascinating information coming out, loving every bit of it. Thanks for taking the time to do these notes.
