An Amazon certainly accompanies a rib well

So is vast quantities of Humble pie now being ordered for imediate consumption washed down with fermented sour grapes?

Congratulations on an beautiful boat. Currently rebuilding both the Landrover and the Delta whilst also erecting a really nice heavy duty 8' x 16' workshop. Looks like this ummer will be good.

Need to teach my 13 year old daughter to weld - she has asked me! A useful skill, I think she's looking at Scrapheap challenge for my last Landrover.

I think in all fairness there was not much tangible evidence offered up (IMHO)that the boat existed and that indeed codprawn existed as he does not like to meet any fellow boaters. He has kept a very secretive existance and always shyed away from meeting fellow ribbers or communicating socially. I suspect that will have to change now as he will be spotted a mile away and will have to liaise and mingle with the fellow ribbers and ribnobburs as Garf would say.

Codprawns ebay account has started purchasing boat equipment like suzuki manuals etc so the evidence and pictures are pointing towards the boat and codders really existing.................cool

No humble pie here as when i suggested evidence was put forward, none was so dont feel guilty of doubting in the slightest way.

I for one am pleased he is getting his boat and it looks great and wish him all the best, will be great if young codders attends some of the gatherings as i am sure he will have a great time.

Talking of rebuilding Land Rovers...

I have just had to buy a discovery because some kind gentleman offered to do a complete resoration on my 110. Now it didn't really need it but it was a good price so I said go ahead.

The bloke has since gone off his head literally and my lovely 110 is now in a pile of bits in his garage. I DROVE it down to him no problem - I now have to get a transporter to get it home and will have to rebuild it myself - NOT amused!!!

At least I will do a good job of it but I don't have the time - at least i have a load of mates to help me - one an auto electrician and the others are proper mechanics so it shouldn't take TOO long!!!

I happen to believe that when a person says something it should be accepted unless proved to be untrue.

I get rather narked to be accused of making things up and then being asked things I KNOW to be true - which is why I dig my heels in when questioned.

And it's not just you - a certain person in the channel islands seems to think I have nothing better to do than make up some of the things I have done in my life.

Anyway all hatchets buried - loads of people have made nice comments about my nice new boat!!!

In a good mood today - just picked up 3 new contracts - be ages before we see any cash though!!!
