Very, very nice indeed, Ashley.

I'm green with envy! Certainly hope to see you out on the water soon - will you be out on the South Coast?

I agree with Ian - one of the most tasteful deck/tube colour combinations I've seen in a long while.

Ya creep. That's exactly the same deck/tube colour as my rib but I don't remember any comments about it being tasteful from you. Are you after a new house design?

For punishment, you have been shortlisted for the Jonno/DM Zappacat experience next time you are visiting. Bring spare underpants.

It needs a pointy nose to look good in these colours and this Scorpion looks fantastic!
Because yours is a MED style it don't look good in Grey!
You need stripes on your bench seat just like ur ol' mate MeMe!

Oh, and if I'm not mistaken that's a Honda 225 on the transom, too. Ashley, are there really no bounds to your style, panache, class and appreciation of the finer things in life? And it goes without saying, of course, that someone of your calibre would never be seen dead driving a RIB dressed as a fireman - you know, you really wouldn't credit the dross we have to put up with in the North West Ribsters.

Naturally we would be delighted if you could see fit to join our humble band of ribsters on a cruise in North Wales this year, although I do appreciate that a busy professional such as yourself might have difficulty fitting it into your undoubtedly hectic schedule. Gosh, I nearly forgot to mention it - we must get together sometime to discuss a small building project I've got planned for the summer.

ps. the yellow seat pods are to die for.
