Voici (unless I get told off for it then I will of course take it down. Although only reproducing a paragraph can surely be overlooked I hope)

We can gloss over the fact that there is no Vipermax 7.5m too

Noted for her "ferocious ability"

Edit: Oh and Emergency info plaque coming soon

Osprey satisfies a whole range of uses, from family craft to dive, race and distance cruising.
So they're "satisfactory" then? Awesome

High praise indeed, but then all us owners knew that already

Exactly. Not to be confused with 'adequate'.

I had a long conversation with Jack about the difference between Ample and Adequate the other week.

As usual it turned into an excuse for him to tell me I eat too much!

And does your beer intake fall into the adequate, satisfactory or ample category? Or all three

I think the result is fantastic and much better than my first attempt. It is already lasered with bolt holes so it can just be mounted with self tappers or bolts.

What do we think?
Very nice, can I put my name down for one please ? Thanks. Mark

Sure, did you get my email reply? You may not have done since I was on the motorway but i did reply to your your message. And this project is currently on hold as my actual GCSE project needs to be built first. Have decided however that I can do better that this one, and will be producing a MKIII. Also as mentioned above I have finished the artwork for a personalised Mayday plaque thing. Similar to the RNLI sticker but with your MMSI and boat name written into it already. I think the best way to do this (as I have had a fair bit of interest) is to buy a sheet of A2 acrylic (black I think since it works with everything) and try and cut the plaques out as efficiently as possible. Should be able to do them very cheaply indeed

Let me have your MMSI, boat name and call sign and I'll do it in five minutes when I have the MKIII design finished. As Pol said, it's too cluttered at the minute so will be redesigned soon
