All you need is a tube on the stern to sit it level at rest so you can brew up then , them buldozer diesels must be heavy.

As long as it aint raining (hate that) I can be in Weymouth from Southampton in an hour, with ease (unless it's blowing a gale, then, I'd be at home like you lot of dreamers, except unlike the 'Bowie brigade' I admit

Then of course, with the sun sinking on the horizon, I can polish it if I wish. (that was for tubby Jono)

So C'mon, you started the 'whats the point of it' thing, what can you do with your 4 metre dinghy once you've got soaked to the skin crossing southampton water at 20knts trying desparately to stay in the thing in an a F2??...oh yeah, you can get just as soaked and desparate coming back again....most versatile craft you have there.
Why i would want to cross southhampton water when I can be on the Scilly isles in a hour or so . Its a very dry boat for just 5m gets us up and down the Cornish coast to the beaches , and gets us home safely when its blow up a bit , doesn't cost a second mortgage to run . easy to tow to other places . As i said before what 5 m hard boat would do the same job i have never come across one on the water or off it , if i do Ill probably buy it.

No tender.

Nice pontoon, carpeted, plenty of fenders (no, not ribs) couple of nice birds on reception

Then sit nearby with sniper riffle waiting for some nob to bash into it ..then go and slash his tubes.

Are you sure?

Isn't this closer to the truth?

You can rest assured that I'd never heard that one before!

As a sweet little ginger kid, you guys can throw what you like at me, I've heard it all before, ten times over......nothing, and I mean nothing, is original.
