Like a careful lady driver!


Standing is my favourite...better view, feels better but after and hour or so the seat is a magnet

Standing wedged in against the backrest if rough,and also better view of lobster pots before I hit them.
Sitting if its flat calm and moreso as a passenger.
This on a rib,not much choice on a sib.

Purely dependent on conditions. Flat calm, I'm sat there, arms folded on passage, watching ahead and the instruments. Bit of sea running, stood over jockey with my bum against the back rest. Big sea stood with knees slightly bent, one hand on throttle watching the sea like a hawk. Top totty on the beach and I'm bolt upright like Fraggle Rock lighthouse!! And I stand!!

So is that with your bum on the top of the backrest, steering with your feet whilst applying the lippy?

So cheeky.

Seriously though it's murder trying to get the lippy on while wearing the helmet. At least there are traffic lights for that very purpose on the way to work.

missus lol
