Super image Chris, thankfully they had done away with manning the rigging when I joined the RN, even in one of those Id have no head for heights . Well spotted

I have painted the lower half of my house but have no head for heights to do the top half so one of these would be good, I am sure Sonia would not mind it in oneTongueTongue.
