You fell into the trap of thinking that nav lights are as open to comedic interpretation as vhf antenae! I think they are regarded with the same obsessive passions as anchors and auxilliary engines.

Doh, now I'm with you, far too subtle.

Looks wicked Steve - It'll be good to see you out and about with paying punters this year. I'll keep my eyes out for you

I realise that this runs the risk of a flame war but I reckon we've got some of the best coastline going - So its great to see someone starting up a business to introduce it to others. Good luck with the venture mate

This would appear to be the case

It's a fine rib/outfit nonetheless, best of luck with it Steve

All the best with your new business, will look in on you during the summer.

The link in the news section on your site for the Boscombe surf reef isnt working.. easy to miss when you update your site.

One again, good luck in your new venture.

Mike

Andrew
Thanks Andrew

But no one was paying, it was family and friends out to see what it was all about and to get some pictures. The 130ltr of fuel came out of my pocket ...

Sorry, having re-read it, I think your right.

As for fuel, I will be buying at cost, so should hurt a little less and everything used commercially will have the tax reclaimed, which is what makes a business like this viable.
