The Good Ship "Thumper"

Hi troops,

Here's my baby - Avon SR4.0
Small but enthusiastic!

Yip - no lifejackets in sight but was more chance of getting grass stains where the pics were taken Spot the suspiciously new drysuit - my (disturbingly sarcy) 10yr old daughter calls me the World's Worst Power Ranger. . .

LOVING my new roller coaster trailer - only 745 all in!

T'bob.

Hi Bob
looks good and tidy basking in the Kilberry sunshine!! Must have been a different year if there was sun. Look forward to bumping into you in Loch Sween next year.
Cheers
billy

It sounds like she needs some exercise to settle her down. Maybe you could harness her to the hitch and she could drag you around the yard... Think of the gas you'd save!

Hi there Bob rib looks good, better than the last boat I saw you in (broken shear pin). Might see you at the caravan some time, good to see another Searider.

The long draw bar will help keep your car wheels out of salt water.

that's not long - this is though!!!

I like them like that - less chance of a jack knife when reversing as well.

Those look like wider tyres fitted to your trailer Bob,.. should be good for beach launches, did you specify them or was that the way it came ? Cos I want some

Drawbar not quite as long as it looks - "fisheye" effect of mobile phone camera's lens but useful for reversing into water. . .
Yip - wide wheels extra option on trailer - only 35 extra. Excellent for launching over sand/shingle/weed/wildlife. Trailer's from www.oceantrail.co.uk near Yeovil - would recommend greatly Paul's trailers - well worth the long drive to collect. . .

And a Big Hi to Kev - how you doing chum, been ages!

Bob.
