got a look at it today, not as bad as I thought it might be!

Serial number is XDC 61194 M84J (take this to mean 1984?)

Model 018 something

2.60 metres

Wont be delivered to me till next week but wondered if any zodiac experts know from the serial number if its pvc or hypalon? Its not at all like my previous Quicksilver SIB more hypalon like - is that what the Zodiac pvc material looks like?

Engine is a bit rusty but reckon it should come back to life OK, compression seems good!

saw that but does not go as far back as I think mine is, could be wrong but surely something made in 90's could not look this bad!

It does say in the blue tab though that the last two numbers give the age. I thought it was 1994 at first sight with perhaps the 6/11/94 but this seems to suggest the 84 is its age identifier.

This reminds me of some Victorian pauper's scribbling from back in the day when only the upper classes went to school, sometimes it seems we've stepped backwards by 200 years

I find it quite funny that 20-30 years ago, many people were of the opinion that with the advent of mobile phones and computers etc. etc., grammar was no longer particularly important, "people don't write letters any more" they'd say. Kind of ironic that with text messages, emails, eBay listings etc., it's actually probably more important than ever!
Are you feeling ok? That's some diatribe. Don't be so harsh, the blokey clearly learnt his three R's from the same textbook as wiLfish.

Ribnet has always regarded itself as a place of high spelling quality and grammatical accuracy. Each time I log on the grammatical error on the forum index page annoys the heck out of me.

Now talking of the future, I need to log off and carry on with "Brave New World" first book I've read for leisure in five years I quite like it

Mustapha Mond, World Controller for Western Europe.

English Lit. O Level back in the late 1800s.

Aldous Huxley's Great Nephew was in the year above me.
