Kerny,

Would you like your moniker changed to "Liverpool Powerboats KE5N7" then? I was toyin' with "Stormforce W1LLK" meself but I'd feel like a terwat.

Lucky I have a long memory and once bought, I stay bought. HP seems to have forgotten his Trade days, maybe the T-shirt (or the mug ) didn't fit?

i'd agree - i've got an 11 year old 620 adventure and it's never had a problem, i'd jump in it tomorrow and go to the channel islands providing the weather was appropriate (i.e if other self respecting ribbers thought their similar sized rib would make it). I'm sure you'll get bad ones just like any other manufacturer but i'm happy with mine.
