Well I apologised because it came across as me being a bit snobby which I'm not. Anyway, people seemed to have rather enjoyed elaborating on the Harvester Salad Trolley theme.

I've had run-ins with you before Rogue Wave about Ribeyes, so hopefully the pictures I plan to take from the back of the Ribeye will prove that it's still capable of staying afloat.

local licence

sorry to be anal but I think a hamble (eastleigh) licence covers you from
"Within a line from Calshot Castle to Hook Beacon" in smooth water or an area from "inside the I.O.W. within an area bounded by lines drawn between the church spire, West Wittering to Trinity Church, Bembridge, to the eastward, and the Needles and Hurst Point to the westward" in choppy stuff

agree with sentiments tho...

He had the qualifications to qualify as a skipper and was put on the insurance as such. We had a verbal contract that he would take the boat at his own risk and he would be entirely responsable. What he did with it was upto him as long as he brought it back in one piece.


Did Mr Steve Hall Know this if not he should of been told.

Just read this quote and wondered if the writer recognises the person described in this article..?


Young Mr X spent an entire month when he should have been studying for A-Levels making an Evil Edna costume for the school Halloween party. The costume was not for himself however, but for the mildly retarded girl Helena who he tortured at any given opportunity. The genius of the design (and hence the man hours required) lay in the "hidden compartments" later to be filled with Camembert cheese (only the finest would suffice). The cheese was left to "mature" on school radiators and the costume was gratefully received by the girl thinking it a peace offering from Youg Mr X. One extra feature were ropes inside, ostensibly to "help keep the costume on" but in reality to bind Helena fast inside the costume, preventing escape and causing hideous rope burn. Time well spent

Mr Angry.... AKA Jono... or "sanctimonious fat bastard" to his friends....

I actually feel for Kieron as it could have happened to anyone and those unlight buoys are bloody dangerous in Southampton water.

Also the passengers should have been keeping a good look out and if they felt he was driving recklessly should have had the strength to force him to slow down.

When I was a member of Oxford Dangerous Sports Club I went on a trip to the Human Catapult in Somerset and during the fourth fling a bulgarian student called Dino Yankof tragically missed the safety net and died that evening in Hospital.

There was a big manslaughter case in the Bristol Court at which I was a witness. However the judge sensibly ruled Death by Misadventure.

It was of course reckless to organise or take part in such a sport and Dino tragically swopped a promising career as an Oxford Undergraduate for a Darwin award. But most concluded that if you are in search of the ultimate you may have to pay the ultimate price.

If you compare Kieron's mishap to this or even shooting a Brazilian on a tube then you will see what disproportionate justice has been dished out.

Any adventurous activity has its inherent risks and people should not try to blame people everytime they get hurt or just think they can avoid them by piling more red tape into the system.

Today school children cant even go on trips as their teachers fear of being sued. That village fireworks displays cant happen due to astronomical premiums which councils insist upon. Each day the tide of authority creeps that little bit closer to prevent anyone doing anything remotely adventurous whilst school kids get fatter and fatter.

Those who want to discuss Icom radios and the finer points of Health and Safety law should muster at the Harvester in Richmond.

For those who want to embrace the spirit of the gumball then I look forward to seeing you on the Belfast on Thursday and sharing the mission of a lifetime.

Bonjour for now

playground law

A slight exaggeration by some of my former comrades from my school days. Still makes for an amusing read.

Everyone is missing the point

this is so typical of British pessimism....find it far more appleaing to knock other people's ideas down rather than thinking that this is a great idea, and will raise the profile of the sport as a whole....

As for people that slate the rally, I would like to know what the last event that they organised that was anything but a failed cocktail party
