Little pontoon

Here's a picture of the pontoon, just be careful of the depth

Getting really envious now, seeing all the stormforce models would have been great.

Models? Hey Ribochet, you never mentioned Models! Leona's nose is gonna be well out of joint. I bet that was Conor's idea...

I think I'm gonna go. I may need a lift...

The rickety shinny thing is the old passenger ferry pier. It's ok if you have a bungee roped anchor and tie up yo it so as you are kept of the pier.
Have a good day remember the owner if the boathouse is a ribnetter.

No show without Punch

Unfortunately with my new layout I have only standing room only

Since the Beast has departed why not get your other "Boss" to lend you Caledonian - with your track record Tom would be well pleased if you managed to flog it
