Magnificent boat. I saw it in 1989 in Rouen. Cheers Christian

My favorites are "Kruzenshtern", taken as war booty from Germany to Russia, and the Italian "Amerigo Vespucci".

Bonsoir, also to Lucy,

Je connais aussi l'Amérigo Vespucci et le Kruzenshtern. Je crois que ce sont un peu près toujours les mêmes voiliers que l'on retrouve à ces grandes fêtes maritimes. Il y a un beau voilier "Le Belem", je ne sais pas s'il est présent à cette fête à Amsterdam. Bonsoir, je transmettrai votre bonsoir à ma fille Lucy. Christian

Ahoy Mike, I have never mentioned any directorship in my comments, but know ye that I hold you in great esteem as the helmsman of trikermike's galley.

Je vous et Christian souhaite un bon début de la semaine.

So you musta bin stoned when you said I could direct sftmp ? I asked you what it was, but you did not reply, neither did Amelia, so my suspicions were aroused!

c.s. on March 23, 2009

Ok Mike, if you like so. Normally I don't throw around directorships, but for you I make an exception: you may now call yourself the boss of sftmp (whatever that stands for), but don't expect a fancy salary and excessive bonuses.
