I struggle to get anyone to go in my boat, whenever I ask they allways say "I'll go in your boat but only if I'm driving". Does my head in, why would I spend thousands of pounds on a boat, put 50 worth of fuel in it an hour, cause excessive wear to my car towing it to the sea and launching it and then sit there in the passenger seat whilst my mates drive it about. Get yourself a ratchet strap and 50kg bag of sand with a smiley face drawn on it
