That gets my vote .. but I have a funny feeling that at the end of the cruise Mrs G will then remind Mr G of his folly with a frying pan

Gentlemen, I thank you all for your input...

Chewy - we don't want to frighten the passengers; and I'm told that "helmet hair" is not the thing on Lamlash pier, unless you're with "The Boys' Brigade"

JSP - yeah, right!

Siochair & Cypman - Mebbes aye... There are definite possibilities in there.

Avocet - after the blaggers' outfitters start things got better; but a bit yottie, n'est ce pas?

Blackroady - I'm with you fellah. I'm just not that brave

Bigmuz - You should know better!

After suitable censorship (anything over a fiver is too extravagant) I will pass some suggestions to the relevant finance department.

I may report back - but I did find this totally inappropriate garment...

Let her drive, she'll forget her hair once she starts getting close to WOT. It's a bit like sex, she couldn't care less once she's gone past the point of no return

Generally I have found the only solution is to go fast enough that you cant hear the moaning - this also ensure any ' unsuitable head gear' is left far behind you .

Also ensure that your own hair looks more daf than thiers & your sunburn is also more severe. At this point instict will take over - calls of ' I told you to put more lotion on' etc etc means that thier own suffering is long forgotten ( at least until you are off the water) !

Whaaa... and that is 22.50 ?!?

I find that a baseball hat with a cheap clip thingy from a chandler works (it attaches my hat to my jacket or whatever) - if the wind blows it off, it just dangles until you put it back on again. It lasted 3 years before the thingy snapped - but unfortunately it was a good 10 minutes before I realised it wasn't still attached - so I didn't get the chance to practise my 'hat overboard' drill.

Yo guys -

Pablo - you were asking about qualifications elsewhere? Of course I let her drive - she's got her commercial endorsement for whatever it is we do. And sometimes she lets me have a go with the wheely thing.

DGR - We've got a huge hat catcher on the back of the big boat (I think there's a piccy on here somewhere but the front page of http://www.obrt.co.uk/ shows it nicely, and also the lady in question - some on here may need to think long and hard about the whereabouts of The Grocer in the photo ); but we've become proficient at HOB techniques 'cos the self-loading cargo sometimes know better than us
