You can never have enough fuel. 16ltrs Cider, 10ltrs Tettly Bitter, 2Ltrs Gin, 1ltr Tonic, and 3 lemons (me Chewy and Big Jim) 3 flat caps, 2 whippets, and the wife (nah)... she pushes the trailer into the water and waits to recover the boat when teas ready. I dont have an SR (so dont laugh) but I'm sure the weekend will be as welcoming for families as it will be for us from ooop norff. Come along and enjoy!

Topic of conversation for the gathering, Jonos thread "searider gathering"

This is so funny!

Jono, you have created a new sport "Searider baiting!" Simply make a thread and see how many SR owners you can draw in to a response! They fell for it hook line and sinker.

SROwners seem a very insular, loyal, volatile and defensive beast with large chips on their shoulders about boat size and seakeeping ability. They seem very hostile to anyone else and become very insecure when a member moves on to bigger and better things. Doubt creeps in...should they be doing the same?? Safety is in numbers they believe, often grouping together when out on the water. Generally, the smaller the SR the more aggressive and hostile they are when poked.

Attenborough could do a documentary on them!! Wonder what their mating ritual is. I'm sure there is in breeding as the gene pool isn't that large. Homosexuality is likely to be present due to the sheer imbalance of males to females, especially on their annual migration to meet eachother. At these events, alcohol and frivolity are abound and they reassure themselves of their stature for another year.

A particular adversary of the SR is the Humber group, a similar beast in make up and design, a simple yet very functional being, but arguably slightly more advanced and certainly growing in number at a faster rate than the ageing SR. It would seem apparent the Humber is quietly taking over the SRs as they die off. SRs themselves seem only too aware of this and keep trying to breed life in to SRs that really should be killed off, congratulating each other on how they bring them back from the brink.

Ultimately, the end is nigh for SRs in the long term as it appears very few new examples are appearing.

I'm currently trying to get the wife to kick me out so I can thumb my way down for this weekend. I've tried all kinds, telling her how rough she looks, fake retching after she's cooked dinner (for once) etc...
I've even tried infidelity but she says the dog doesn't count.

I don't know, anything could happen this weekend. Have you never been with other seamen, tossing about in a boat?
Classic blackadder!

On the plus side, I've nearly got my one year old lad walking and I'm on a mission to get him to walk down to the bottom of the garden by Monday...or I'll ground him!!
