I reckon they'd write me off before signing off £10M on me!!

We have an annual policy from Norwich Union Direct. I asked if they'd cover RIB cruises.

"Uh?"

I then asked if they'd cover long excursions by motor boat. After a brief interlude to consult with the supervisor, the reply was "Yes, that's OK as long as it's not sailing"

OK - one policy sold to me!

I always thought all those bits of string were dangerous...

I agree though, an anual policy is much easier... That's what I've got too!

If I remember correctly, all visitors to the Channel Islands need a passport (Charles??)

They're a very fussy lot!

Mind you, having been there (and France) a couple of times by RIB, you never seem to do through any checks at all.

Funny you should say that...

Actually I work with another Dubliner (you are a Dubliner, aren't you?) - maybe I could try to pick up a few useful phrases over next week

If you don't take your passport, they'll ask for it. If you do take it, you won't need it.

Yu dont need your passports to come back to the homeland.

For you historians we were captured by the duchy of Normandy first and you guys after so we are mor eEnglish than you therefore we will excuse your need for passports!

Evening all,

Just been out getting the boat ready for this weekend only to find that she's finally fallen apart - in more places than I was expecting! I guess keeping up with Alan P was too much for her.

So rather annoyingly Iím not going to be able to make the cruise.

Anybody looking for crew?

Daniel

Crikey - that's not very good news What happened - not the transom?

Now, we're down to bench seat only on our RIB, not ideal unless the weather's perfect, but can somebody offer you a place on a jockey seat? I guess that Dylan is also keen to come?
