Aw....it's only Autumn still.....

Tigger had a nice new blue tarpaulin fitted today....after my wife had used it to transport garden rubbish to the tip!

Twigs everywhere I ask you!

It'll have to come off if the sun shines and the sea is flat!

Snapper was sad to go to bed so early, but his owner couldn't afford any more petrol this year and has to save up for next year.

I tried to get one of those stick on ones, but Halford's told me they aren't available any more and you have to get a proper one made up. Apparantly you need to provide all the paperwork from the car to get one made.
...So I just wrote on the number with a marker pen.

Have my next planned winter out when the sea freezes over during the next ice age.

Just built myself a little front cubby to keep kids & me warm and dry if we stop or the kids want somewhere to shelter if it turns nasty while underway.

Note This has nothing to do with me having no trailer or anywhere to put the RIB over winter

Regards Gary

just a thought

Wouldn't it be a good idea to put some wooden blocks under the trailer, to take the load of the wheels.

Maybe you have all ready done this but I couldn't see this off the picture

Regards
Rene

If you put wooden blocks under the trailor to lift the wheels off the ground ,then you may as well remove the wheels.
lock the wheels up to make your rib more secure.
