Rocknrolla's right! Get out there and play, if not, go and buy a fletcher!

Otherwise you are the boating equivalent of your typical 4x4 owner!

(though stay safe, drunk in wooden bar is better than upside down on sand bar!)

it was only a slight miscalculation, I just need a wider hanger that's all.

Yes, but you use it to tow a boat, not mount curbs outside schools!

Plus you're a dodgy builder!

Should this happen, please exit the craft on either side on the inflatable tubes, proceed down the sandbank and await the rescue craft, Domino. Wishing you all a safe journey, god speed!"
Mr captain Kerny, Hope you don,t hit a sand bank this weekend mate, or you will never live it down.

whats the general feeling of others i know kerny is itching to get his new boat wet and he does like a bar to play on a pub bar
Looking at the Forecast,and haveing spoke to Dave earlyer,I think on weighing up the options,that we'll be missing it this time round.Its a long Hike for me,with the possibility of not doing a round Island trip.BUT Im certainly up a Bank holiday Bash, Weather permitting!!( If that's what is decided on) .Boat fueled up and ready, so I'll keep an eye on the thread,and HOPE its just postsponement!
In the meantime have a good one! and if its fine weather,and you listen carefully in S.W you may well hear me cry out... when I kick myself!!!
In the meantime,to Balm my hurt feelings (and no doubt to put me in a better mood!) The Misses,has just ordered in a Thai....meal that is! And told me she picked up the latest 'Sapprano's' Box set for me!
All the best for a Good weekend and hope to catch up soon!!
