Maybe he's self conscious about his written communication skills.

This upstanding chap you're all talking about, wouldn't by chance be the same Hugo Montgomery-Swan who borrowed a certain sport rib for a weekend for a trip to Frog, and to do a boat test on it would it?

The same HMS who gave the (brand new) boat back a few days later, with untold damage to said boat, who then denied any knowledge of how the substantial damage occured, refusing to accept any responsibility.

The same HMS who for many weeks continued to deny any knowledge/responsibility.

The same HMS who when finally confronted with a witness's version, then suddenly managed to remember that actually, his son had done all the damage to said rib whilst 'pissed up' in france!.....nice bloke!..not

I can't imagine it is the same Hugo Montgomery swan, coz the one I'm talking about sounded like a right lowlife, where as this HMS sounds like he must be a very law abiding man, with extremely high moral standards, hence his wish to sort out this terrible mess, and get to the truth as quickly as possible (via the use of a lawyer)

As I said, I'm sure it must be a different person.

I have to say I thought trouble was brewing, Fjordrafting's comments were way over the top even if true. However to respond in this manner is equally over the top. I cannot see HMS coming out of this with a better reputation, it's a bit like throwing s**t whilst doing 40k in a RIB most of it lands back in your face. I have been an avid purchaser and reader of the unmentionable magazine for 2 years now, I'll save my money in future, oh well perhaps not I'll buy "Big Ones" instead, HMS has certainly not done himself any favours with this action perhaps more skeletons will come out of HIS cupboard. As for his Solicitors, any firm that allows a letter to go out in that state can't be up to much I wouldn't consider using them.

I know Fjordrafting in own person and i know every thing about this story!

And fjordrafting is not doing this for the money- a deal is a deal

Fjordrafting did not say THAT HMS IS A THIEF!, he only did ask the question IS HMS - A THIFE? he allso warned others not to be fould by such people, but make sure that the agrement for payment are written.

So i have to say that in my eyes HMS is a big I.... and people like this make me sick and angry. If everyone that got a little critic should have acted like that, the solilicitors would have a lot of work. But of course some people fell that they are above other people and are more important than others in this world. Sorry dont you know how i am? im Hugo M S and if you say or publish somthing bad about me, i will sue your ass!

There is now wonder there is war in this world.

If only hafe of the stories on the board about HMS is true, i guess he has a good fanatasi making stories - it wasn't me - and i guess he has a good deal with solicitors firms.

Sorry to tell you HMS it seems like you are a unpopular man at this board at the moment.

And like other have said i will never again buy RI.

'Taken from a well known thread'

"with a nasty hangover we trudged up and down eventually locating the Revenger and the Phantom. I was just across the way from the Phantom when it took off, in reverse with Thomas frantically trying to disengage the gear. After bouncing off 3 other boats, he managed to slam the throttle forward and bounced off another 4 boats before finally pulling out the kill-cord. I suggested, to a very ashen-faced, shaken Thomas, that I tow the Phantom out of the marina and start her up where there were no other boats around, just in case the throttle got stuck again. We did this and there were no further problems."
