There's your clue!

Strange how investment bankers (cockney rhyming for ) seem to favour Chaudrons, must be why returns are so poor at the moment!

Fishfinger has a point, you seem to have alot of time on your hands, why aren't building boats?

I suppose its because you are so good at insulting potential customers!

Smart to55er then

Mr Davis, if I may be so bold as to offer marketing tips ... here's how we do it in the city :-


in my line of work I get to meet quite a few investment bankers ... in my unbiased view they are some of the most intelligent, charitable, shrewd, generous and comfortably well off chaps you could ever wish to meet. ( telephone number, email and rates of bro available on request. )

Well.. what a pair of amateurs... but.... I suppose that the skill required for a decent insult comes with age and experience. These two are obviously not yet out of short trousers, so I guess that we’ll just have to put up with their feeble attempts till their bollocks drop… ho hum…




…. And that’s “Midlands” for


<edit> this is not aimed at Mr Smith... who obviously possess the wit required of a grown up.....

Sadly not! They seem to have been 'struck dumb'.

Pitty, as although apparently lacking any social skills, or knowlwdge of boats, they seem such nice boys.

I wonder if I should give my mate in HR at Abbey a call. I'm sure he wouldn't be too pleased to see an abbey employee, from an abbey pc, and an abbey email account calling people a tosser.
Not sure I know anyone at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein though

I hope that you don't know anyone in HR at my company .... because if one of those revenue sapping parasites actually listened to his voicemail and came 'round and told me not to use my work computer to post on this site he would out on his/her arse before he could say ' unproductive use of company firmware '

we pay a fortune for our HR dept .... and , as far as I can tell, their raison d'etre appears to be to slap my wrist if I wear jeans in the office.

in answer to the original question:- chaudron or phantom
in my first season as a racer i have been lapped too many times by some old git with a beard in a phantom but NEVER even overtaken by a young one in a chaudron. if you lot have too much money and / or time on your hands get the bearded one to show you what your boat can do and then you won't dare to ask that question ever again
