Breaking news!

Man thrown from boat in Solent!

Police believe one 'Mr gArfish', may have been testing his new Ribba Flickin Machine.

The Casualty, Mr Stuart Hopkins, AKA 'Borldscratcher' was thrown from a small unstable craft thought to be a Gemini rib, questions are always being asked about the safety of these flimsy craft within the highly professional hardboat community.

On the advice of my liable lawyers I cannot comment other than to say it was coldish and I could help thinking of you JF, oh for a quilted set of Dickies.

Unfotunately matter were made worse by the fact the driver of the boat was enjoying the extra 10 knots my ejaculation gave him and it took him 3.95 minures to come back for me

It wasn't too bad I have after all built up a layer of blubber specificaly to help combat these situations. The real irony is that I was probably the only person on the whole outing not wearing a dry suit.

By the way the giant of the boat forum world Mr Kinnit has got a great bit of portable consumer electronics re. his own speed gun!

You nob, call yourself a boat builder! Everyone knows "jockey" seats are best, (I read that on fibnet) but perhaps Stu should stick to the flat rather than trying for the hurdles!

Reminds me - I was dealing with one of my foreign customers recently, whose English was not that good.

Talking about lay-outs for RIBs and he kept talking about 'Horse seats' - took me a while to realise he meant jockey seats!

Yeh, if you look carefully, you can see it in the background, just left of centre.

I'm going to buy a water pistol, as I've got 3 of the feckers now!
