Have you been at the sherry again Biggles?

It's a small working rib undergoing some refurbishment. Not bad, but your description is a little over the top don't you think?

Matt, this looks absolutely superb, i love refurbishing the old Sea-riders too, i'm setting one up as a wakebording boat this year, the idea is to flood the hull and block it in there to create a bigger wake, i'm playing around with using a curved tube on the next one instead of sectional which should make it look a bit more up to date.
'Ere.... 'know where there's any old hulls?

Pompous ass. Have you ever done anything for yourself or does your butler do it all for you?

Actually its a bloody nice, small working rib, something any RIB lover would be proud of owning. I've seen the workmanship matt produces and its awe inspiring. If you don't think so maybe you should be surfing some different forums such as www.Ikeafurnitureforcitydwellers.com or such like.

Tim. You need to get out on that boat of yours and get rid of some of that inner city bad air.

Leave Tim alone

Since I've found out that Tim's mum has the same job as mine (Mother trucker) I think he's an OK geeza.

I also think you should cut him a little slack as his knowledge of RIBS is limited, this can be confirmed by the Boat he owns, so bear that in mind.

I think it's fair to say that beuty is in the eye of the beholder, and that Captain Biggles has spoted what will be a fantastic result when the project completes. but at the moment it's definitely work in progress!

I am glad to see that I am not the only one to be emotionally involved with sea riders, I love em me

I note the cloggies have got a searider club.any body up for one over here

Fantastic result on the toobs how bad where they when they went to Henshaws and how much did it cost to do , if that's not being too nosey
