I spend a lot of time dreaming. Take care not to get caught in my dreams.

Sometimes my dreams become substantial. I record those here.


I sail an older trailer-sailer on lakes and estuaries. The Rambler did not come with a manual so i record stuff about it HERE.

Metal and wood

I build with metal and wood. When younger, i liked having instructions and sometimes read them. Then i found a two volume explanation of how to build plank on frame models by Harold Underhill from Glasgow. Since then, i get a kick out of sitting with raw plans and working it out for myself (although it is hard to get Harold's voice out of my head). I only have one rule. I do not get hung up about finishing a project. The downside is that i have a lots of unfinished stuff.  Here is the finished stuff :)

I have built a small observatory for imaging deep sky objects, but enjoy taking wide field star panoramas and planetary/moon shots as well:
