Hi Biff

Wise decision and there must be no turning back. Play with the ribs on the water and not on land. That's the idea isn't it?

I am sure he'll pick it up and do a grand job... just needs to keep his perfectionist touch, like he showed us on MacRib

lol, did a little number on Biffers man cave today, took everything outside and blew it off with an air line, also swept the place out. Much less dust about now...

I nearly had a heart attack when I saw his tool box wasn't as tidy as mine

So true. I've got a 30 year old 50 knot Sunseeker well on its way. Fiona and myself will probably do a cruise around Britain. Take about a month off

Biffer, I also don't know you but I echo everyone else comments and think it's now ready for some biff time.

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish Alex good luck in his new venture!

An SR7.4 or an SR8.4 should do it

you dont need a cabin mike, not when youve got that engine bay heated tent
