Jono, if you said you were fitting a hiab to lift the rib onto the back I could understand, but thats looks like something to do a Securitas raid with how many trucks do you need to carry 53m

Used to have a box body bedford with a complete office on the back and machinery trucks are available from the firm, would one of these not be easier ?

Right that's this thread completely off track, wonder if Brian shouldn't start a salvage company exporting old grave yard ribs back to be refurbished in Jonos workshop, tubed by Paul, transported by Rogue Wave and sold by DM. Could be the start of a major international corporation

We did look at taking one of the offices off your friends round the corner however we are so attached to the 3000sq foot of warm double glassed workshops and show rooms we have on the most populated river on the south coast we decided against it.

Mmmmmm

And the weather's usually better too! I'm convinced!
Does Cyanide like it?
Maybe I'll look you up if I get over there this year!

Read a whole book, cover to cover.
