Very entertaining half hour with a coffee! People go through a lot of hassle for a few litres. I'd sooner give it to the boy racer down the road with his 1.0 Corsa and very big expensive noisy exhaust.

You can of course wait for the boat show to buy a Jiggle and Pay 3 times the price. It will of course be a better one because it was more expensive. Or you cold just get one delivered from ebay for under £10 and save the bloke from the boat show having to buy it from ebay and put a £30 sticker on it.

You decide

Best not to leave port without one !!! joking aside they are excellent for pub access etc where you need to leave your boat for a while in tidal areas when consuming your full english ,,, fun was aimed at Bigplumbs who is now banned as jiggle syphons were his favourite toy with the anchor buddy a close second ,heres a link and i have to admit the white boat at the back of picture is mine ,there is 25 feet of boat there in a massive outflow hanging on the buddy which is the orange device in picture ,the rope you see is used to bring the boats back into shore when needed

Looks like a good piece of kit which I don't need to buy! Great for Ribs (nice RIB by the way!) but I don't think would be of benifit ona SIB. Unless someone is going to tell me differently

Just looking for the easiest way to get 7L out of my tank and into theirs without ruining paintwork!

This reminds me, I confronted two drag racing outside the house the other month. Hereís the moment we papíd them and reminded them that people have died on this road driving like ****s, let alone the near misses with local kids on their bikes.

To their credit they apologised and backed down... Guy on the bike looked about 16...

Take the clip off and use a jubilee clip put tank on a blanket on top of car prime the bulb once the line is in the tank have a Cupar whilst it empties. I do it all the time also I top my main tank up this way in the boat so I take the small tank for a refill, got a jiggle hose to

I have been known to use this approach. Although I suggest a degree of care may be required when you go for that cuppa. I once left the boat like this moving fuel from one tank to the other. I came back and something (perhaps a wave) had dislodged the pipe and I now had a good 5 or 6 Litres of fuel slopping around on deck.

Filing pics on my PC and came across this forgotten pic of a petrol station in Lombok. Perhaps he's got a point after all
