or cricket!
great pictures though,

another positive note, if it were my misses with me and I did this I'd never hear the end of it, would be easier for me stop the tide going out in the first place than get her to shut up

Actually on close examination, is your missus flicking you the bird whilst she is sitting on the bow!!!!

If thats all you got then you got away pretty likely

Jokes aside. We ran aground at crawling speed compared to what your boat is capable of and already suffered bleeding noses and the driver had a bad cut over the eye so be happy that your missus and yourself are ok

Any man that tops 93 mph in a 20 footie is the top dog in my book ............. but put him in a marathon race and those northeners are such whimps.

Bring on 2011 Steve we want you there.
