I should think Knots are too much of a complecation to the Americans. The ones ive met have not been the cleverest of people.

Come to think of it though, why do we use knots?
Whats wrong with MPH?

Nothings wrong with Miles!!

I must admit though that Americans are a little "thick", I blame it on their TV

Most Yanks when first hearing you think that your Austrailian and one even thought I was German, now how does that one work.....

Havenít Carted for a while now. Used to practice at Stokes Bay, but Port Solent is still OK. Saw some lads Buggying there today actually.

My hunting grounds used to be West Witterings a couple of years ago until they banned it for one season. Then a club opened called the WWBC and made membership quite difficult to achieve, so calmed it down over the last couple of years.

Did go to Fuerterventurer (not spelt right) earlier this year and had great fun out there!

I guess that's why I've bought a RIB, I need a distraction of some kind. There's not many of places to Buggy around here but there's one hell of allot of WATER.

I have one wish though. Once in a Blue Moon the tide goes so low that there's a sand bank revealed mid Solent. I'd like to take my RIB and buggy to that bank for some serious mid Solent FUN.

Twice a year I think. Just have a look in the Almanac for the lowest tides.

That'l be the Brambles. If you go there in the summer you will find a bunch of blokes playing Cricket on it.

Do ya think that they'll be pleased with someone buggying though their game. I think NOT! But it is a nice Idea though.

Have to get there before they get their stumps into the sand, place a flag in the middle and claim it to be my own (Like the Americans did with the MOON). Good old Yanks.
