A Sad Day...

Just sold my 4m Narwhal today and the front garden has now got a steaming great rib sized gap

Only reason that I let it go is that the kids insist on growing (Note to self: must stop feeding them - maybe that will work) and we need something a little larger.

The only plus is that I can now start looking around for something in the 5m to 5.5m range. However budget is not overly generous (5k ish) so if anyone has got any suggestions I'm all ears

Off to find the brandy bottle now ...

Nah - I'd have to be chemist for that

The best I could manage is still a large electric field across it and measure how long it takes to burst into flames

It was one of my madder moments - ended up buying a lorry trailer full to the brim of lab glass - until I started selling them on Ebay if I thought about test tubes I would break out in a cold sweat - now they are selling pretty well on Ebay - all sorts buy them and all over the World. Stage props - bio diesel makers - all sorts buy them. At the moment just selling off the loose unboxed stuff.

God knows what I will buy next - I have 3000sq ft to fill now - maybe a Chieftan tank or a Stalwart next???

We compared weights of the bare boat and I think its around the same weight as a smaller searider.

I presume you have considered selling the kids, and dismissed that option for some reason?

You just can't get a good price on pre-owned "little darlings" - and besides I couldn't seem to find a relevant category on E-Bay
