Please do, as might well give it a go this year. Presumably you have some kind of deal with the gods that guarantees oily smooth seas and fine weather for the hairdressers boats?

Allan,
That's right, any more than the wake from the odd swan or duck and i'm not playing! after all, I don't want to get my platforms wet, or my flaires creased! so I'll just have to hope and pray



Matiboy,
Yeah that was me, Merlin has closed now of course, whole operation moved up river to Drivers Wharf, so where do you keep your rib now?

September 1962 was a good month obviously...I guess I'm 11 days older than Jon too.

lucky to be able to bung it under my parents car port in lee on solent

rember when I was talking to you once that I was impressed with the huge twin diesels you had fitted, wouldnt have been so impressed if petrol

Imagine running twin 5.7 v8 petrols, you'd be Gordon Browns best mate

despite all the ribbing you will get on this forum, you have a boat to die for !

This any good as a project

Forty years of age seems a bit old to be driving a boat like "Leviathan".

What's a definition of hairdressers boat?

I bought my first rib at 39.5........what have I been missing!

I did have an RS 400 dinghy before, that would do 20kts!

Daniel,

if you can drink beer and stand your end of the (no doubt prodigious) fuel bill then you are welcome to come aboard Blue Ice

I would be keen to do a Poker run at sometime during the year. Can squeeze 50knots on a good day out of my boat.

Please post the dates as and when you know.

Cheers

Mark
