I've done that too I worked for a shop called motorworld in my teens. They had a rack of fake one for displaying outside. Was always fun

Note to self: watch yaself when Matt's about. He's the type to put nail polish remover on the tube of your self inflate life jacket and then throw you in the water.

He'd be halfway through doing it, then have to rush off to buy another RIB (probably a Searider)

Matt sounds like a right character

Any one got any approx dimensions for large leisure type or truck type battery's? I don't know if I can fit one in my double jockey. All website listing them don't give dimensions that I can see.
