We need to know...

"The Mrs likes clean ropes"

Priceless!
we will have to see if we pull better birds with cleaner ropes, will have to see if the mrs has better luck than me, usually does

glad to have cheered up your eve

That is sooo women and boats isn't it? (likes clean ropes) (Immediate apologies to female boat ethusiasts on this forum) Had an amazing conversation with a female client 2 weeks ago who insisted on boarding my boat in high heel shoes, and then complained that "there is water on the floor, is it salt water? because it will ruin my shoes.?"

Grrrrrr

White ones
But you have buy them 50m, thats what we are doing with both black and white, than we cut them our selves.
Easy to cut and just burn the end, its a lot cheaper to buy 50m than cutted 10m.

It would, I confess, be rather interesting to learn just what Mrs Hartley's RIB wish list would actually contain. This is not a rhetorical or even smart arse question. I really would like to know.

Thanks in anticipation.....

Always used to wash caving/climbing ropes in the machine - NO detergent and no bleach!!! Only something like LUX flakes if really dirty. Obviously on coolest wash as well.

Do I really need to add - don't tumble dry??? Of course ironing is fine but never quite got the hang of that!!!

these are special wrinkle free ropes so no need to iron which saves the mrs some time.bleach got the algie and the soap got the dirt and 60 degrees did the business.

well here goes
soft ropes that dont hurt your hands
clean shiny white ones that match the boat and look nice
plenty of room for her stuff she decides to bring along
comfy seats
the minimal chance of getting splashed or wet
a sun deck for sunbathing
a smooth ride and not bouncing and slamming down
a cooler for the drinks
somewhere for the picnic basket
no cold winds
only sun no clouds
not too much noise
not going too fast so too windy
no rain
no smelly fish
soft baked bean hovis bread
heating if a bit too cold

that probably covers some of it!!!!!!get the idea?

Chris, not sure how to break this to you. Your wife doesn't want a RIB . . . .


















. . . . she wants a caravan!
