BIG mistake

Bought a fridge/freezer for the RIB, thought it would be nice to keep some cool drinks, ice cream and wine, problem is that I seem to have ordered an 80 ltr Waeco instead of an 8 ltr, I couldn't believe the size of the crate that arrived today You could run an ice cream parlour from the one that has arrived, maybe I could be Mr Whippy of the sea and sell ice creams around the coast

Will buy another and be a bit more careful, it needs to fit under the consul with access from the front, I seem to have mixed up inches and cm, I wondered why it was so very expensive, never mind accidents do happen

Anyway, also bought a 62 watt solar panel system (folding) for the RIB, just trying to work out where to fit it, that should keep my battery charged, will also power the freezer Sunlinq E-Sun P3 62W Folding Solar Panel Bundle - AquaStuff.net - Your outdoor gear specialist based in the UK.

Mrs GJ0KYZ and I bought a 320 litre Beko chest freezer the other day. God, where has that been all my life? I never knew owning white goods could be so exciting. We call it the Brr Brr and now I actually look forward to shopping for frozen food!

I'm worried there will shortly be a clip on YouTube demonstrating how well a Mrs GJ0KYZ will fit in a 320l chest freezer

You'd be amazed at how easily a wife fits in a chest freezer.

If you just give 'em a couple of hours until partially frozen & the flesh firms up, they don't clog the chainsaw either

Make sure you straighten arms and legs at elbows and knees, it makes them soooooo much easier to stack that way

Chainsaw would alert the neighbours. A good axe will be more surreptitious.

I've found the excuse of "I'm just going to run some fresh water through my outboard in the garage" as a good excuse... Props do get messy though...
