I used to work there 25 years ago, it may even have been me! Lol

I loved those 4m, fantastic safety boats and easy to teach all manner of courses from.

What Tim has put together sounds great, as I told him I can't do that date but hope free on next one. Despite thousands of hrs working I relish some time on the various drives in or day to update skills. Can never do too much training
