Are you using a Kodak Instamatic?

All your pics seem to have that 1950's tinge!
That'll be Tigga dust

Have you tried changing the settings? From Sepia tint to full colour?

Settle down. I'm still using tea leaves and teapot at home and move the boats with a 50 year old tractor. I'll catch up in my own time. What's sepia tint. Have I got enough hair for that colour

Sure you wouldn't rather go for frosty chestnut, or medium mahogany?

Right, on a more serious note, I've got some money to donate and now the thread stands at 1600+ posts, I can't find the account details!

A1an, a previous SR refurbisher, has purchased a couple of Barrus tanks from me which I handed over to Dave from Clyde Marine at Lymm Services this afternoon, who will transport them over the border when he returns oooop north later this week.

So, with the P&P saving, plus the fact that A1an, Dave and I simply can't attend Biffer's man cave and contribute in person, there's 25 heading your way as soon as someone can let me have the bank details!

I'll leave this to whisper. The account we used for the build is a savings account in my bank. Now the boat is just about done we don't need anymore for the build and what is left in there now will go to whispers just giving account. I'll take it if whisper thinks that the best place. I'm just the worker not the boss

Nice one dude, we have more than enough money left in the bank account, in fact all we had to buy was paint and fuel fittings I think.

So if anyone would like to donate the please make a donation to our JustGiving account.

Rib. net is fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support

Nice work
