[QUOTE=Chief Wiggam;509700]Dan Cooper comes to the Isle of Wight and buys sunk & scrap engines, at least one complete boat and various engines in bits.........he pays in cash. I know this by hearing various tales of Dan from Norfolk flashing the folding. He appears to have a search facility on the local 'Wightbay' website and I strongly suspect on other auction sites nationally. I say this with some knowledge of the speed of response from him when items are advertised. It strikes me that Dan might be flushed out by the judicious use of adverts which show such engines for sale. Wouldn't it be a shame if he travelled to see the engines/bits and then found out it was a scam!!!!! I'll see if - on his next buying trip - I can get a shot of him. It's time we did something about this 'pot de toss' as the French say.
If anyone has any personal details...date of birth, vehicle numbers or a national insurance number (holy of holies) I think Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs might be interested to discuss his taxation issues and fondness for the 'cash economy'
The little fellow is fond of cheap Mercury's at times............[/QUOTEI'll give you or anybody on here £20 for a genuine full face photo of dan cooper. Can't wait to see what the usual suspects now produce !!!lol
