Best domestic location photograph

Ok...building on from HERE where Matt0909 showed a picture of his beautiully made outboard stand being shown off in the conservatory, who's got the best picture of a RIB or associated part in a domestic setting? I'm talking engine rebuilds in the kitchen, SIB's being scrubbed in the bath...you get the idea

Damn, I don't have a photo, but I had to keep my 40" deck, ride on mower in our hall for 12 months while the builder continued to not finish the garage. Not a rib, I admit, so out anyway ;-)

Have had various motorbikes and engines in the living room (and bedroom) in the past - pre digital camera unfortunately and I'm not sure where the piccies are now.

Also had a Fireball dinghy hull in the lounge drying out from osmosis for 3 months.

Unfortunately the only digital photo to hand is from when I first got my first SIB - cat was impressed, wife less so.

Cheers

Chris

Blowing up SIB's in a living room is a must AFAIK shame I never took a piccy of mine .. being left there for a month or two should hasten the divorce IMHO too .. and what would she file on the court papers ? Get in it & Have a gin and tonic next time whilst viewing a fish tank DVD for maximum effect on the telly

Biffer, your attention to detail has no bounds! That's great.

Do you have OCD by any chance?

You should take up showing cars or something. The lengths they go to with detailing is unbelievable.
