Yes, they like the idea, not so sure the actual wind and rain is as attractive

Sry, didn't know there was a set code per se, those in the know (all of RIBnet) are probably aware that it's Article One of our Standing Orders. But I'm good with the plan, and, assuming that size of keks equals volumes of drink, I'll pinch a pair of Mrs willk's for the A-frame...

... oh man, living dangerously tonight

If you are short of space you can just stick one of these on the A-frame

Yes there is, it must look smaller that it actually is cos I'm not long back from living in it for five weeks and that was a question often asked.

Yes, well the wind and rain in your face are part of the fun.... until you no longer have to suffer it. pics for effect..

I was chatting to the owner of said Humber today. He built it all up himself and it is very very well put together & finished off.

Very practical for him with his kids and has a 320 (?) hp Yam diesel in the back end.

It is adjusted to suit just his needs and I imagine will deal with some very nasty stuff and keep plodding on. It will be kept in & around Poole so keep an eye out for it.

I'll have you know that until recently, us Solent RIBbers used to celebrate St Patrick's day every year in honour of our Irish cousins. We hung the Irish flag with pride as we crossed to Cowes or Yarmouth.

If you need another excuse for a cruise/pi$$-up, St. Piran's Day is the 5th of March.
