I hope I'm not being misinterpreted as being snobby or such but its just an observation.

I guess it also depends on what the speed limit is...

No not at all. Given the road is fairly straight and goes South East near a number of important Roman historical sites it would be fair to assume that Julias Ceasar or one of his followers built it during the 400 years the Romans were in England (before being evicted as illegal imagrants). So not bad for a road 15 centuries old, although clearly it was only designed with enough room for a couple of chariots to pass each other. What were the Americans building at that time ?

Within an hour he'd fitted a small but professional looking patch and now I can get back on the water.

Any one with RIB problems wouldn't go far wrong contacting Stuart for help. His prices are keen and his service excellent. In all my recent dealings with Boat Repair yards this is the only place that made me feel welcome.

Many Thanks Stuart.

If you feel stupid (Like I did about airing my problems) then just PM Rogue wave.

Any pics of your latest repair work mate, I'd be interested to see - thanks

The picture with the White van jammed against the BMW would probably be a 60MPH speed limit

It Is !!! but we cant seem to get over 50 even down hill fully loaded.

We (white van man ) were stationary when he hit us I expect he was doing about 50 . The BMW was a total write off all the drivers side smashed door pillars and roof damaged .Worst of all his spoiler (Halfords best sub woofers and those little blue LEDs that seem so useful on the back shelf were all beyond repair too !!

No worse than that is the saddest personal number plate ever
I also think that if he was going faster he would have made it Des
