Unused Musto HPX Ocean Dry Suit XL

Bought this for round the world yacht race, but seldom went outside if the weather was nasty. So it's totally unused.

Most people who have them rave about them but as I have a cabin RIB I don't propose to break the habit of a life-time and get wet enough to wear it, it's no use to me.

It's bright yellow - Musto call it gold - XL in size and cost, I seem to remember about 650 quid. Any offers?

I may need to speak to you about this, although I'm a bit pessimistic about sizing as I reckon that I'm shorter and porkier than you!

Not so sure about the horizontal dimensions, but it'd be seriously too long.

But having now tried the wretched thing on myself, I've decided not to sell it. If I do get brave enough to accept a ride in another out-door RIB it might well be the right thing to be wearing. In the meantime, I'll just hope that I can stick with my nice warm in-door ribbing...

Yes, what's a hop and popper? I am innocent, and a victim of circumstance!

Hop and popper

I too am naive in the understanding of what a "Hop and popper" is I reckon you've just made it up, Mike!

Sorry to be obtuse, fellas. That was meant to be an insult to Charlie Babe.

A hop 'n pop is a very low level freefall parachute jump. Useful if you are clockin' up numbers. Those that try hard can tot up to 10 a day, hoppin' n poppin'. Despised, some might say, by those that like to fly high.

Actually, it was my rather feeble attempt to respond to Charlie Babe's "poofter" gybe as he has millions more jumps than me.

Having said that, his comment is still pretty rich, coming as it does from a bloke who traded in a RIB for a cabin cruiser. Still, his heart's in the right place. I musn't be too hard on the lad ....

You do meake me laugh That is the exact reason I had a gybe.. at myself actually. FRUSTRATION is the theme of the week. A couple of brothers came over last week intent on buying the Targa to take to the Med,well, they loved the boat but declined to buy it at the eleventh hour as they found the ride too bumpy! My, my, F4/5 wind against tide in these waters and that was their synopsis. Any 30+ footer would have behaved similarly, I thought it was rather exciting myself. I was so sure they were going to buy it, I booked flights for this Thursday to S/hampton and am meeting Graham Jelley to discuss the new boat. It has all come to nought. I want to scream!!!
