Stu i did see this (and other) posts of his on Boatmad when i followed JK's link earlier in this thread. I've also seen them before over there, but never bothered to read them beause i can't work out a single sentance.

If you think it's that funny i'll read it for 10 minutes now, but i feel you need to translate.

How is posting like this constructive? Seams a waste of time, hence i can only be bothered with RIBnet.

This is'nt a dig at you at all Stu, i like a laff, really

Funny, but looses it edge when it takes ages to read. Sorry to be so boring.

Ahh... looks like:
"The Scorpion does have a fine hull and the tube quality is second to none"
What excellent taste that chap has!

I suppose you could say that he's done for the spoken word what Les Dawson did for piano playing

I think to sum up we all do silly things from time to time or things we wish we had not done, but whatever anyone says or the analogies we've all come up with here Daniel went out with a lifejacket on, wearing a dry suit, kill corded up and carried a radio on the boat and thats a hell of a lot more than i see some people going to sea with !!! So whatever happened it could have been a lot worse than a swim if he had not been well equiped.

The sea is a dangerous place lets not forget that, maybe these unfortunate things that happen to others make us all think about our own safety and that cant be a bad thing.

Daniel, yes you are right, Boatmad is more flipant When I read this I roared laughing but then it takes all sorts. the spelling is really the funny part of it, plus his off the walls comments

I really enjoy the Boatmad forum, as I do this one ( my spiritual home so to speak). The good news for you , I guess, is that JK would not encourage that sort of thing here!

RB I think that's possibly an insult to Les Dawson's piano playing but you are on the right track

Oh really, not sure I agree with that statement.

Hey Humper, I've only been running on 5 cylinders for a few days, but I'm back on all 8 now!

Further to Daniels tale of ejection.................
I carry in one of my drysuit pockets, a fag-packet sized strobe unit (in the other pockets I carry lots of fags and lighters, of course!).
The strobe is built to some NATO spec. or other and is "bomb-proof" as well as (properly!) waterproof.
It's value is threefold:
1. It can be used as a normal torch
2. It is a powerful strobe with a long lasting battery and....
3. The strobe is powerful enough to bounce off the underside of clouds, hence both at night, and in dull, cloudy weather, you can be "seen" over the horizon.
It can be hand-held, clipped onto your life-jacket or fastened somewhere on your boat so that in an abandon ship situation, it can be taken and used by any crew member.
Piggin useful bit of kit.
