Ask yourself would you really want to buy anything from a company called 13 ?

Disapearing off at a tangent
One of my fathers engineers bought a brand new capri (when they were new!) a week later a deer jumped out and totaled it and put him on hospital over night. The Cops went round to see his wife and carefully told her about the accident and that he was in hospital for observation over night and not to worry etc. Then asked how much space she had in he freezer - this was a bit of supprise to her ----then the other cop walks round from the police car with the rear quarter of said deer.
So you sure its not capri's thats jinxed ??

I wouldn't get too stressed over the logo marks. The Rib isn't really old enough to have much of a difference. It's caused either by Glue or the difference in exposure to UV from the sun. from the unprotected surface and that which was covered by the transfers

Also why Lee Fairweather....didn't you buy the boat from JBT can't they help you


Try Cleaning the area with Ribshine or Bostik 501 or TFR. But it will all fade into the same colour in a couple of months anyway. Alternatively you could have some logo's made up with your boat name and stick them (literally) where the sun didn't shine.

by the way when you have finished make sure you hang some fluffy dice from the A frame a la Capri! Don't worry about the thirteen number there just all trying to get you at sixes and sevens
