Baileys

Me thinks it was a container of Baileys Cream Liquer in Christmas presentation packs with two glasses in each pack,

Nice catch.

Thanks,Mike, for your affirmation of my rib driving style. I do like to see what lays ahead.

What prompted me to start this thread was reporting on this forum of rather speedy voyages on lumpy seas. For example, referring to a cross channel spin:-
''Had 4-5 plus waves with speeds of 22-48 knots across the top the whole way back.''

Assuming waves of 1m+, I would have felt uneasy, even on a large rib, at those speeds in those conditions. The bottom line being that I would not be able to see sufficiently far ahead at those speeds to avoid some semi-submerged lump.

The flip side of the argument is that you'd probably be out the water half the time so you'd have a 50% chance of missing whatever was floating in the troughs

(tongue in cheek remark BTW!!!)
