I think your later post of a laminated sign is far more appropriate.
Tim, I suppose you'd be OK about it if it was your RIB then? ......I think not!

And I thoroughly approve of the wording of your proposed laminated sign. Polite, welcoming but firm without a hint of aggression.

Well done...I'm certainly seeing good progress here.
Patronising numpty...

I think I may need to explain.

When we returned after lunch there was a 2l Ice Cream tub on the back seat of 'The Nashers Revenge'. Not mine, and everyone denied all knowledge of it.
After seeing the Rouge Wave thread I was a little worried about opening it.
But after picking up the courage I found all there was inside was a lot of crumbs which looked like the remains of somebodies lunch.

Because of my good nature I'll assume it was blown off the harbour wall when somebody put it down beside their bench, I'd hate to think somebody threw it in the boat on purpose.

Nasher.

Hands up it was me

Nasher
It was us - we eat our sandwiches sitting watching harbour life (and last ribs arriving) and then thought we should go and meet you all in the pub. Did'nt want to be seen in the pub with a tatty icecream tub/sandwich box, so carefully placed it on the centre of your rear seat. The intention (of course) was to collect on our way back.
Well we sudenly realised that France was 1 hr ahead and we did'nt want to be arriving too late. So we hurried back to our boat and completely fogot.
So thats the full explanation....

Hi, thanks for the explanation, and of course you were very welcome.
Its the simple things that often cause the fun, and I did think it might blow up in a cloud of talcom powder when I opened it.
Without meaning to it gave a few of us a laugh, thanks.

I'm afraid I put it up on the harbour wall, so some particularly clever seagull has probably bagged an ultra modern nest by now.
You'll just have to eat another 2l to get the tub.

Oh, and I'd agree with your taste, Walls devon Ice Cream is the one I always buy too. Its great on its own, or even better with Mrs Nasher's home made Apple Crumble. Mmmmmmmmm.

See you soon.

Nasher.
