Rear view, back of seat where Nav light pole is fixed has been bugging me as it is bare ply, had the backrest re covered and having an orange perspex plate fitted in there which the nav light pole will go through, that should brighten the rear up and make it more attractive.

Bought a new prop 10 1/8 x 15, but didn't really do it for me as it looked bit black, so have bought a Stainless Steel super dooper one 11 1/8 x 14, should brighten up the rear and shine nicely with the underwater Lumishore lights

Work is going well on colour co-ordinating the new plotter, it is being baked orange at this moment, I hope they have got the right colour, I don't want to be tangoed

Re the smaller bags, I have one for the bow line, it will be directly opposite Big Bag on the other side.

I am also fitting one at either side behind the helm seat to store flares, thermal imaging, portable sonar, LED Nav lights, spare parts, first aid kit, torch, knife, back up GPS plotter, Satellite phone, survival bag, EPIRB, and some other bits and bobs. I am also having a special bag made to cover the spare fuel tank to avoind the sun, it will have velcro opening so I can switch the fuel line without taking the bag off, just deciding on the correct fabric that will work, stay clean and not mind a bit of fuel drip spill on it now and again

Only the fire extinguisher to fit, got that just making triple sure before drilling holes it is in the right place, so will use the RIB for a bit before permanently fixing it

Oh, also got the courtesy lights, one each side of the consul and one at the rear of the seat, plus the bilge pump and Lumishore underwater lighting system, and internal hull illumination system, I am really thinking about where to put the switching, I have found some lovely waterproof switches in the US but would like them put discreetly out of the way, should look pretty good without being Chavvy

Oh! and Lowrance HDS 5 plotter to be fitted this weekend


I thought it was the ladies who loved bags

All jokes aside they look cool and I could do with one for my anchor. I called the contacts you recommended and neither "Ben" or "Phil" were available. I will try them later

Yes, you may get a Welsh answer machine, if its not on it's Phil that normally takes it and I guess Ben would sort you out as well, good luck!

Here is the number I called 01554 882000, press option 1 twice for military sales, don't worry if they sound a bit sheepish they are very helpful and will tell you where you can order them from, they make them there at the factory in South Wales. Don't be worried about the military side, just say you love men in uniform, they will sort you out

If you are just wanting to keep some lippy, mascara, spare underwear, something for the weekend and your handbag, then the smaller bag would do.

I was put through to his wife "Bendy Wendy" Over - she said Phil and Ben were out on parade!! You know me too well - once I heard that I was in the Typhoon en-route. My middle name is "Uniform"

If I am to take my man bait ......ooops I mean 'make up' (lippy, mascara.......etc...) out on the RIB then I would need to commission something like this EXHIBIT A

Did they give you one? or tell you where you could get one? And were you satisfied?

P.S. You just beat a confident and dominating man that knows what he wants!
