Just out of interest have you ever seen one of these being trailed on the road - saw one a while ago - bl**dy massive - almost the height of a s/d bus. Not for the faint hearted or low bridges.
Correct, During the Round Ireland Rib challenge , which I completed mostly on Land, I trailed one for 2300 miles in 10 days.
anybody ever driven on Irish Roads.

Nicely edited bit of a quote there, but come on, you can't be that stupid, or think that I am, I seem to remember that I said "I can't understand why anyone would buy what is a cheap prop to use in High Perf applications.

Sounds a bit different when you quote me properly doesn't it!

As for a Lazer two, not cheap, but an excellent prop, proven itself over many years in both pleasure boating and racing!

Any way RichB, Dickie, Pepper or whatever you call yourself this week, don't stop posting on Boatmad, they enjoy a good laugh!

Will the real Dirk Diggler please stand up!

Hey Dirk, how about coming out of the closet and letting us know who you really are? You hide behind your dubious nom de plume here and on Boatmad and give false details about yourself. Isn't it about time you told us who you are? You seem to be well-respected by some members here and you are fond of giving us your opinions but until you are a bit more honest and up-front I have no way of knowing whether I can believe a word you say.

Richard B may not be perfect (and as his other half I am fully qualified to comment!) but at least he doesn't hide his identity; he stands up to be counted. I know who I trust (and I trust those I know).

Maybe he's the twin of Manos.

I think he choses to hear only what he wants and forgets the rest conveniently.

Still good for a giggle and a a1 wind up artist

Worthy to be an Honorary member of the ??????

BTW must have missed your referance to the laser 2 or was it in your mind



Anyway back to the real world -

"Whether I can believe a word that you say",

No problem with that from my end, it's only my opinion, believe it if you like, it don't really matter to me.

"Richard B may not be perfect"

Not going to argue with that one!!!

I'm a little concerned that this thread about dickie buying the wrong prop could run into several pages, and so I'm going to try and avoid replying to any more comments on the subject, it may not be easy, but I'm going to give it my best shot!
