Paul, Kathleen,

if we keep on getting weekends like the last one I'll never get my flipping rib in the water.

I'll tell you a little story:

Last Sunday I took the cover off Kohaku to replace a few bits and peices and left it off when I went shopping for some nic-nacs. On the way home it rained like cats and dogs and on my return the wife said "I tried to cover the boat because it rained but the tarpaulin was too heavy for me, I'm afraid your boat got wet dear!"

Andy

No, that's far too low for a RIB appreciating wife.

100.

Come to think of it... she's really under-valued.

A round grand should be the opening bid

those who know my penchant for hitting props will realise that I've gone for an Alloy prop in the size - 13 1/4 x 15.

This is what I've got on at the moment & although a S/S prop looks & perform well, you do not want to touch anthing with it !!

May also get a 13 1/4 x 17. Any ideas what this will do for me?

Pete
