Ha ! It's just as well I know you're only jealous !

Reading this months MBY, I assume all you need to wear is a "night-cap". Falling asleep on-the-job indeed.

No chance - I seem to remember that we had just discovered a way of spicing up a potentially tedious trip through the Caledonian Canal.

We're not all narcoleptic you know.

"Too many Alans".... reminds me of a Monty Python sketch which Alan P no doubt saw first time round. We younger types have to rely on repeats!

Ooooh, come on now Alan.

I know that our MBY journalist enjoyed himself, whilst pot noodles and your sleeping arrangements didn't agree with the journo on your trip to Bangor, but hey, that's life.

You'll get over it in time - maybe !

jools, the Gecko Helmets are a real asset,particulary in poor weather they are light ,comfortable and provide valuable protection and allow safe navigation in the worst conditions great value for money,so good even my kids like to wear them! apparently now available in different colours, we own six of them must be good!, they become part of every trip once you've got over the stigma of feeling like an RNLI crew member.

graham, i am grateful that you have brought this discussion back to the original subject. obviously some of the contributors regard this site as somewhere to engage in bitchy / cliquish behaviour driven no doubt by some sort of sexual dysfunction.
however i fear you are greatly mistaken in recommending that ribsters don motorbike type helmets while skimming the seas and if you worked in the hampshire coroner's office as I do, then you'd know why.
Over the past number of years, we have had to try and determine the cause of death of seven bodies washed up on the Hampshire coast. The cadavers in question were all wearing motorbike helmets. We assumed they were suicidal motorcyclists copycatting a disturbing scene in the film 'Quadrophenia' starring Gordon somebody. We are not stupid though, and we often wondered why someone bent on suicide would take the curious step of donning a crash helmet - habit perhaps. One rather romantically - inclined office girl speculated that perhaps the corpses belonged to ejected fighter pilots who had abandoned their parachutes. However I now strongly suspect they are ribsters and would recommend the Kennett rigout. Otherwise, please carry ID.
