They probably have a Diversity policy which means you'd qualify

I see they've got two of most things on board. That just means they'll have twice the inconvenience when those Navman displays decide to absorb some briny!

For resizing use this - it's so easy

http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...ertoySetup.exe

Just install - then select the images you want and right click - chose the largest of them - RIBNET will cope!!!

Upsidedown on M5

Reported to have been seen upsidedown in a ditch southbound M5 just past past Portishead/Gordano Services junction. Had been towed by an unmarked Range Rover (which was pointing northbound with it's nose in the air & detached from the trailer) also in the ditch. Whoops!

If this is true - its all down to one missing sentance in the operating manual .

'This vessel can be operated at speeds of around 50Knts' - should have 'on water only' at the end.

Hence stunned looking RRover driver saying 'the book said it was good for 50knts ! '

I wonder if anyone checked the weight of his boat & trailer ?
