The question should really be do you need RADAR ?

Do you go out at night or in poor visibility, do you go off the coast or only inshore.

He really doesn't need RADAR on his non-existent BWIG.

He does need to go back to the clowns paying him to ghost post and to tell them to read this thread though:-

you don't think that's a fair description for a big white shiny arch on a rib?

I believe the etymology is from a 19th century term for a pimp... ...seems appropriate in the sense of "pimping up" a boat/car etc?

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
