Robert - thought you'd just bought these - why have you decided to sell - not getting out of boating are you

I did but illness denotes no bumping about in a rib
in fact nothing that may injure my back any further than it is.

I am absolutely gutted
Love fishing from my rib and playing in the really rough sea . but that's the way it goes.
and too think i was going to either buy a hull or make a hull and make my own custom rib.
funny how things can change with just a visit to a surgeon .

Some stuff sold already inc the rib still have some more items to sell .
But even more gutted..

Bummer - I'm so sorry to hear that Robert - I can imagine how gutted you must be, health always makes such an impact when it stops you from doing something you love - sorry I can't make it any better but on the good days I'm sure there are people here who would be happy to have a bit of extra company - always welcome to come with us but I suspect my driving is enough to weaken even the most fittest health fanatic - I've aged hubby by at least 10 years in the last 6 months

I'm sorry to hear you are getting out.....not by choice.....Bummer. I take each day as it comes and am thankfull for good health. God speed to you.

I will take them both if they are still for sale. I have a good home for them on the great lakes in Canada. My Hurricane 590 is a great boat but we need some protection for the crazy days.

please contact me for arrangements and payment,

Cheers,

gone to a Good Home

Just an update on the Geckos - every bit as good as Sonar said they were! The Geckos are making winter ribbing much more comfortable for Donegaldan and BabydollNelly. See the snow

And as a bonus, DD's yammie rebuild was a success, with at least six knots added to top-end (she was very rough before-hand).

So he won't be so cranky now

And a good day was also had by the scurvy crew on the Goose - who absolutely didn't slip into Rathmullan for Fission Chips at the Salt n Batter

Mrs M and I are also now Gecko'd up. The last Scillies trip was utter torture on the mince pies with 3 hrs of the sea crashing into them.

Indeed Mollers, BabydollNelly was particularly impressed with the comfort factor. Comms are to follow. That's a tidy wee A-frame that he put on there too, local build. I understand that you're looking for one now that you've joined the Order of the Nights of Repair

Hopefully a certain Welsh knight will appear on his white charger (camper) and sort the thing out.

I quite like him & spend a lot of time in his company.
The old fella DM met him last Tuesday night and they got on fine, but DM did show him some respect.
