Well I'll swap you mine if you're just bored of the big dull boat and want something that will compete with donegal dan for fun per of fuel...

Will it have a "lid" on this one? That would limit your choices somewhat, unless Bigmuz has any spare tractor cabs you can do a JW with...

What can I do....
