another flying boat

Niels

Not sure i can tell you anything about this boat mate but when you get it and have it flying do post a pic of it so the chaps have something to winge on about, hey maybe you and the co pilot can go naked for the pics this time, now that would really get up some people noses, but hey remember to wear a life jacket!! lol lol.

Hey JK maybe thats a good idea for a new thread, the fastest moony on water, bet JF would be able to help with that one, oops sorry forgot his boats still not on the water,lol lol oh well maybe he should have got a rib instead of that slab sider

Hey Manos come on back from the darkside you know we love you really and you know you really dont like all that crasse chat on boatmad lol lol.

I decideda half an hourago that I was going to be a serious member of the forum from now on, no more jokes, no flippancy just good old down to earth boat talk.

So I feel it is best that I don't mention that it would have to be a mooney cos with the windchill factor there won't be much to shout about if you turn around. I you do do this I reccomend the use of a lifejacket cos any rescue crew is gonna be laughing their socks off at the site of Bilgeys rear sticking out of the water

I can't believe Avon ever made a bad Hull , but what type in particular to you mean the Searider or the Adventurer

Maybe so, but he is on the water as we speak, in a boat that has a tender strapped to the bathing platform almost identical to your fine craft!!

Now then, what sort of interest do you have in Seascouts??

Hey Bilge Rat

I think you better stand in the shade a bit. I think the sun has affected you.

Hi everyone... was not suggesting i did a moony, i'm far to sensible to partake in any of that sort of tom foolery :-) and anyway i'd probably scare the hell out of any passing fish, what i was actually suggesting was for Niels and his mate to make some funny pics next time they go flying and post them.

Wave i have a searider !!

DD all horses for courses and depends what you want to do, have to also remember there's always someone with a bigger boat than yours !!
I have lots of interest in the Sea Scouts !!

MarkWildey... If i'm in the shade how the hell am i gona get a tan, besides i'm already mad !!

Niels now a topless beauty airborne would be worth the risk of not wearing a buoyancy device, if you post this here you’ll have my undying admiration forever mate, know one will ever diss you about safety kit ever again.

Come on guys we've seen Manos topless how about some beauties.

Ok i'll stop being sexist before i get told off again.... !

Where's bad boy Fuller gone its getting boring on here without him
