Are you sure that this early retirment thing is the right way to go DM.

Not sure all this new time in the bath tub is a good thing dealing with this new found vivid imagination of yours?


Can you get me a set of matching toy boats for mi bath

Yours Rooster Cooler

But in for a penny,

It looks like we may need the services of International Rescue,a local ribber who frequents the midlands and is known in various circles as a Don Juan of the sea ,being able to bring back from the dead all fellow ribsters and his own 2nd hand outboard with quick a lick of paint and a unique and well publicised resusitation technique.

In the doghouse

At 0400 hrs, me and the missus were woken by a plaintive voice, from the bathroom, saying "land ahoy" followed by mooing and baaing noises. On investigation, it was Uncle Albert and the animals in the Ark/raceboat. It seems it needs extensive maintenance after one dip in the water. Divorce looms.

DM

PS. Oi CH, wots this Don Juan stuff. You've got the missus suspicious now as if I aren't in enough trouble.

Boat wars-part trois

To recover from their ordeal, Dirk, JF and the northern eccentric retire to a Greek restaurant. The owner, due to attend the Great Orkney Sib expedition, has had a chart of the Orkney's incorporated into the mosaic flooring. This is so he can memorise the area as he serves up the nosh. Conversation remains polite until the dessert arrives. The icecream boats are the wrong shape. JF throws a paddy and starts smashing the crockery. He does not understand why the staff are applauding him.

When he calms down, the talk turns to boats. The intrepid three decide to pool their knowledge to design the ultimate boat.

This is what they came up with. It must have a long waterline length based on a Mannerfelt planing hull and be pencil thin. It must be seaworthy either with or without the detachable tubes. It is powered by a single large, powerful diesel through a semi wave piercing shaft drive (big rooster). Accomodation for six with cooking and shower facilities and for extended cruising, two 120 gallon fuel tanks made from N8 alli with 4" fillers.

Pic of this creation to follow....
