Yes Lymington RNLI has one as well, I imaging it gets a bit claustrophobic when you go deep enough to need the windscreen wipers Des

I have an answer to your dilemma, that being Codprawn's existence. Since we have seen evidence, or apparent evidence of Codprawn's boat ownership, I think it would be a simple matter for Codprawn to have a picture taken with him/her standing by the boat. Debate over! I will even offer as an olive branch to do the same with my boat when I get it back just so Codprawn does not feel singled out. Fair enough? A boat owner outed in the Isles and one in the States as well! Damn! I feel like applying for an Ambassadorship or something!
Good idea Pathalla, We could all do a "me and my boat" posting. I seem to remember Molulnan posting one in the " Show us yours" thread a few weeks back that was a little more him than his Rib, but in the righr direction.

Interesting to note though that Team Saluki are beating all sorts of exotic vehicles in their Land Rover 110 - including the wildcat!!!

What a bunch of miserable sods!

I reckon half this thread is people having a dig at Codders new boat, or offering their 'opinion' on it's merits or faults before the poor bugger's even got it home.

Give him a fkkn chance!

Well done Mr Codders, I expect you're feeling ever so slightly smug at the moment!

hopefully you will find i have been pleasant for quite a long time now!....

and for christ's sake take care if you are driving it back across the sea from the channel islands as that is a fair distance, you would be better off doing the journey with another boat incase you get into difficulties as the boat and engine are new and i suspect you have not had a great deal of experience out there. I for one would certainly not attempt that journey on my new boat on my own....!
