In true "Jon Fuller" style
I'm going to reply to my own message :
If someone doesn't want to go out in a force 6+ and rather keep the ice bucket topped up that this there choice and doesn't mean they are bad people or their boats are rubbish.
What kind of message does this thread give to a powerboat user passing by ?
I can't see myself buying a hard boat but doesn't mean I wouldn't want to accept a lift in one, unless its an OCR boat in which case all those people are mentally ill and have left their brains at quay side
