Two dodgy looking guy's on a Sailing Boat

Very concerned today as two members of Rib net were seen on a Sunsail Yacht doing bumps and grinds
errr coming alongside
errr parking it .

One looked like from a distanceThomas Magnum only a lazier version and the other used to be associated with something to do with the magic roundabout but is now into wizardry
I was very suprised to find out that they were closet WAFI's
can you guess who they were and please no smut

Tim

You'd be correct with Paul Jackeen, but "gaiy wan" hmmm well that would be Robin and he most definitely isn't "gaiy"

There's going to be trouble.

gArf wotareyoulike???

Yes Tim they are out there being yotties. To quote Paul : 'I never knew there were so many (insert Dublin adjective here) names for (repeat adjective) ropes.'

It's going to be a nightmare...we'll be luffing and puffing and attaching the painter and springing everything in sight when he's back onboard Merlin. Instead of the usual practice of whacking into the pontoon, wrapping a few ropes around the nearest piece of iron and heading for the pub like any decent Ribster.

Our PB Instructor just 'phoned because he had a report of their presence in the King's Head.

They're going to be worn out from rushing around the Solent at 5 knots

And the evidence, a single grainy photo, taken from afar, from a moving rib...

(P.S. - Robin, nice parking, it looked good. I hope my presence didn't put you off )

Thanks Jimbo.

Nope, your presence didn't put me of at all.

I have just had a look at the piccy, the gap I was going into looks bloody huge there, it certainly didn't seem that big when I was parking it.
