RIBase
It looks to be 2004 or earlier as it has the deck securing rails (these were discontinued around 2004 I believe). Can't wait to see finished pics of Biff's work on it!

Don't know what I am at the moment, I'm juggling and have so many balls in the air, if I dropped them I'll be like a kid in one of them play pens with all the balls in, roll on the retirement
