On a serious note though - tough luck Malthouse. I know from personal experience that Paul Tilley will do an excellent job for you

I managed to put my knee through an area in the top of the mid section.

This did not go down well.

We just spent two hours on the water trying to fix it ready for some surveying tomorrow.

Suffice to say Henshaws and Tiley have both quoted for new ones!
About time you got some large clam shells in stock

The problem we are having is the hole stops at the safety line D ring, even a temporary repair is going to need that lifting in order to get a good perimeter.

Our Mel is getting less and less pleased with the situation. Things are bad when your only hope is being baled out by a man from the insurance.

I did suggest duck tape, you can imagine how well that went down.

The Melanie has spent all day doing an uber patch, this involved removing lots of tube furniture and quite a lot of harsh language plus demands for tea.

I am pleased to report that I:-

Got in the way,
Interfered,
Made useless suggestions
& was a general waste of space.

There appears to be a certain similarity in our job descriptions, at least if one believes Mrs willk's opinion to be of value

The trick is knowing when she is in the room, anyone who watches NCIS will know about how Gibbs turns up whenever someone says the wrong thing - well she is like that only me doing something daft with a boat/engine/landrover/etc is the trigger for her to appear!
