Nice landie!

Nice stuff. I'm a great believer in the lock and seal tupperware box on a rib.

nice job don't worry about how much it costs per mile just keep buying fuel as opposed to upgrading to a Ribeye or a Ribcraft.

An' here I go again on my own, Goin' down the only road I've ever known

Great Job, have you a Aux Genny to run that lot?
Do you find your compass heading is out? as it appears not to be parallel to your keel .

Not really Chewy - it was more of making them fit rather than giving the proper clearance

Brian - we are planning on taking a spare battery to start with - just in case
Re the compass - that's a useful observation - I just screwed it on rather than align it - might have to look at that - how embarassing that the only bit I did I did wrong!!!

Matt - really looking forward to getting out to see if it all works - fingers crossed!!

Oh no, sorry KY, the popcorns all mine. I'll be stuck here all night now waiting for the Ribnet mafia to speak. Avon? Upgrade to Ribeye? Oh boy!!! What a classic
