Nautibouy yet again

Could not resist posting these pictures as Nautibouy's fame has no end .

This is our new truck which will be used for collecting engines from Brunswick Marine (Mercury) in Belgium and parts and accessories from Vetus in Holland.

No doubt will be seen in many other countries throughout Europe

and delivering R.I.B.S

You forgot to mention the main reason that the truck was ordered. The truck will mainly be used for delivering RIBS. It will even be able to carry the new 10,5 metre twin jet. Currently it is on it's way to VARNA Bulgaria delivering the New Cabin Jet Rib. I am leaving this morning for Varna and will no doubt post some pictures from Varna on the thread new parker 900 cabin twin jet.

I always thought Europeans have much nicer lorries than the boring ones you see in the UK. Nice one.
Their drivers are better as well and they seem to be much better regulated. This might have something to do with our crappy roads though.

I must admit I did have to think about Nos when I typed that. He's not here at the moment so I've got a little time to build some defences.

As regards being a European. I suppose to the US we are Europeans. But to me, mainland Europe is a totally different way of life to Britain and the people are just so much more cosmopolitan.
That stretch of water might have saved us a few times in the past but its also made us very insular.

Very nice Andre, glad things are going well. I'm amazed that a 9m Baltic can go inside one of the trailers though, obviously tubes deflated.

Must make you very proud of your operations

Well done.

Obviously you nothing of Willi Betz!!! And they are far from the only ones. Better regulated? In countries like Spain or Portugal or Greece or Eastern Europe? Any laws they don't like they just ignore

A Parker 900Baltic with deflated tubes can be transported on a cradle . The cover has to be removed for such transit so Nautibouy not visable
