The affrontery of it

Just had my new insurance policy through....

My pride and joy which last year took on the Chenal du Four and the Raz du Seine, performed heroically on a horrid crosssing to Deauville (only F4, yeah right Julian) and still kept going with two broken engine mounting bolts on the way to Weymouth

is described as a "Rubber Runabout" !!!!

They're gonna take some educating.....

It could be good news if they don't think it's up to much - insurance premium might be less!

They might question how a "Rubber Runabout" managed to get to France though.
