Thanks lads. Been neglecting this a bit lately but really glad you lot are still at it. I will make it up to you lot once I start work again after Christmas. I'm having a far better time this year than I had last year. Hope some of you are up to coming over for some abuse and mayhem in the new year

Santa's been!!!

We have a Boat Hook from Lakelandterrier

Maximus sent a new Engine Lock

A brand new boxed 13 1/2 x 15k prop for us to sell (as it's too small for us) from Jeff Hutcheon

2 x Barrus fuel tanks from Bushrider - these have travelled from Germany to Hull, over to Mike Whitam in Preston, from there Landlord picked them up and now they are here with me where I will take them down to the MacRib

The power of Ribnet...

Merry Christmas you lot

Alex,
You want the tanks spraying the same colour? Or any colour you wish? I have special paint to do so if required,

Nice one Ed, I like to look of those Black Barrus Diesel tanks I need to service them first as apparently the pick up pipes have a tendency to perish, also I'm hoping that Nos still has a couple of valves in his rather large parts bin

I'll drop them up as soon as I get them sorted

So the only question is Black or Grey???

Hold that thought Ed...

Inside the darker of the two tanks I think the pick up pipe has completely broken down and all thats left is a black mess all inside the tank with the filter laying in the bottom, either that or it could be something else? So to be honest I don't think that tank is useable, however the other lighter grey one looks ok

I think we need one more Barrus tank though

Fair play to Bushrider for going to all this trouble to get them to us

Hi Whisper ,
Sorry to hear that one of the tanks cannot be used . I never used them before and if I knew that before I would not have taken it accross Europe to get it to you !
A Merry Xmas to everybody !
