You can't beat a good rumour.

I was at the Jumble at Netley on Sunday, and the word there was that both Fairline and Sealine had gone!!!

I believe Extreme Marine are a bit shakey too!

I considered laying myself off, but decided to have an extra hour in bed every morning, I now get up at 10, even if it's a quiet day.

Your not the first to have commented. I've thought about applying for charity status, but until then I'll just have to make a slightly higher loss!
