Boatmad sticker on a RIB!!!! The FGT will be on the warpath!

I'm not sure wether (can't remember correct speeling here... Phil, feel free to step in...) to be jealous of your adventure, or bloody glad I wasn't there....

Cheers Carly. It was a brill boat, brill engine that covered @ 700 miles comfortably ... and completed the job. It was an amazing experience...
So glad it was Fiona I was asked to work with
Jono JF sent me the stickers so I'm sure he doesn't mind It's a powerboat after all ! Although we were calling it a ship by the end of the trip. A ship I really love.

Missus

I don't know whether it was a missled venture or not as Mr Kipper says But IMHO for two women to go in such seas on their own means that they have a lot of courage and should be praised whatever the outcome (in this case was successfull)

so

Missus I like the CD player by the way

Fi does this means then that you are not going to visit us in Santorini this year??

Dear Kipper or should you be called Fishy? Because someting is!
Your knowledge of where your so called brother lives is none existent seeing as you cannot even spell where he lives! It is to be expected that some people live only to knock people and it is clear to see that you have been living in the shadows of far greater people than yourself. I would also suspect that you where always the one that had to go to the school prom alone because you could not get a girl to go with you. Stop being a jealous wimp and post something in your real name so at least we will know to avoid you when ever your are seen.
This event was well planed and executed with the best skills and determination needed to survive a circumnaviagtion of Ireland.
What have you ever done in your life time?
If you do not have anything good to say about these two gutsy girls, sod off and amuse yourself else where! Alan P

Much appreciated.

1) My best hat
but without the ears it was missing a certain something

PS - SC lost one of his w/e before last which, as they are guaranteed to stay on up to 175mph, means we must have been travelling some
