100k a year eh?
If he's a GP and youngish he has probably got a 100-200k practise loan, A large mortgage, 25k a year in school fees, a chunky loan on a XC90, 10k a year on holidays, liability insurances, tax @40% and an expensive wife. With a certain lifestyle a 100k doesn't go so far these days.

Only if you take a flask and make your own sandwiches.

I have a strong feeling that given how keen you are to "find out", you know exactly who does leeways tubes.

Lee, i have heard through the grapevine that you are quite a nice guy, why oh why are you persisting with the blase attitude, i dont think any of us wish you any malice, i for one know how difficult the marine industry can be, and after all, you are trying to make a living! so why oh why hide the fact its a direct splash?? it appears that you have dug a hole that is too deep to climb out of! do yourself a favour, put the records straight and stop avoiding/dodging questions/comments.

I can say with 100 per cent Onhesty i dont know I havent followed the previous thread on leeway and came in on this one at the end but as you may know i have had problems in the past with a tube supplier and this is not a sly way of bringing it up and bad mouthing them.I could do that at any time and fortunately dont have any interest to as the tubes were removed and replaced at Henshaws.this is a genuine question its just the lack of response means the more i want to know

Right, well I believe I am correct in saying the tubes are made by Olmec. Have a look down this thread, and I think the boat in question is a leeway. Tube fit

Thankyou for confirming that you don't intend to now jump on this already war like thread and use it for more olmec bashing!

I earn 250 000 a year. (And Freddie Starr ate a hamster)

Great.

Does this mean we're no longer going to be bored sick by "my boat, your boat" arguments?

Aren't the press great? For the record:

1. I'm not a GP
2. I dont earn anyway near 100,000 let alone 250,000.
3. I have no wife, expensive or otherwise. Or kids. Or a Volvo. Lucky me.
4. As much as possible on holidays but 10k, behave.
5. I bought the RIBeye because I was bored at being shown boats that looked like someone had been sick in them. Repeatedly. Besides its great fun, does exactly what I want it to do, is in great nick and was built in Dartmouth just down the road. And its yellow....hooray!!

Now where were we. Who's sploshing whos hull?

Jon (more likely to get seen in the dark in a yellow boat)
