Yes, they probably would mind as they have their own Grey haired (not quite a disaster zone) but balding Dad to embarrass them.

But the Monster is more than welcome.

You can get some tips from the Mother Vessel if you like.

Sorry Andy, another excuse to post one of my favorite pictures.

The Smaller Nashers in 'The Nippers Revenge' steaming past 'The Nashers Revenge' off beesands, Start Bay, Devon.

My advise would be to keep an eye out for both SIBs and Engines, as you know I got hold of theirs seperately, but buying very cheap meant a lot of work on both the boat and engine, particulary as I modified the boat to accept an airdeck that Olly gave me.

Good luck, I'll keep my eyes peeled for you.

Nasher.

It's a 2.8M PVC Zodiac.
Plenty of room for the 3 of us, but much more fun for them without my weight in it.

The 4HP Merc (XR1) gets it going nicely and is very light.

The Airdeck I converted it to makes it much easier to roll up into it's bag both on board the RIB or on Land. But this is also helped by sucking the last of the air out with the electric Pump.

If you want to pop over and see how small it rolls up, just let me know.

With a bit of effort, buying and selling engines etc, the whole thing stands me at @200, so it is possible to do.
