Wasn't it in the South Pier second hand boat show the other week? I thought the wheel house was nice and roomy although a bit 'pipe and slippers' if I'm being honest. Mind you, none of us is getting any younger and it would be ideal to take to Paris; maybe not to Mt. St. Michel though.

Don't worry, it's only 2p a litre in Venezuela at the moment. This will cheer you up though: Read the reviews of Veet hair remover - http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-revi...owViewpoints=1

Depends on the guy coming up with the money for the ski , anyway Rib has a 3.7ltr Yamaha (Toyota) lump which started first time and settled to a smooth idle after @ 15 seconds, not bad as it's only been fired up twice in 4 years, the last time was before xmas. Prop needs dressing and there is small chip in the gel on the keel about @ size of 5p.

No, it was not meant to be funny. The purpose was to remind my fellow countrymen that there are better places in the world to live other than the UK.
which sucks. Yes, I was there less than a year ago and spent two weeks on the Hamble, Solent, IOW etc. ( my old stomping grounds). Think about it before your arse gets too sore.
