Another one takes the plunge
« on: March 07, 2018, 03:39:54 AM »
Having spent the last year or so contemplating Sea Wolfs in their various incarnations, I finally jumped in with both feet a couple of weeks ago courtesy of the very helpful YuriV. After a bit of a delay in UK Customs (which is only going to get worse after the Brexit idiocy), my Seawolf arrived on Monday. An early 70-72, 702-916 model, serial no 1,490,xxx, it wears its almost 60 years of quite lightly while avoiding being over restored or polished to death. I look forward to being part of the Zodiac family.

Thanks Butch, coming from you, that is quite a compliment. Very pleased with how it looks on the Tropic I managed to source for it . Supposedly this is a genuine 60

Not quite sure why, but having trouble posting anything completely, VZ seems to cut off posts if I back-space or delete while writing. Any help on solving this little annoyance gratefully accepted!
Meanwhile I thought I

I have not ever heard of this. Have you tried another browser?

SW, have you?

They make lots of browsers for phones. Well, Android anyway.

Finally figured out what the problem is. Posting from either my Mac or iPhone, if I use any punctuation other than commas, full stops or question or exclamation marks, the rest of the post from there, gets cut off. If I take these marks out then it works fine, so it must be something in the Mac coding for these glyphs that the forum doesnt like. At least I can work around this now.

Haha. Been using Macs for 20 odd years as a designer, so I am kinda used to their foibles.
