I knew someone who had a dubious income, his first boat was called "Immoral Earnings" the second bigger boat was called "Not Enough Evidence" he is now however in prison.

Ive been working on a church roof for the last month in a very unsavoury part of town, this morning the police launched a drugs raid on a house across from us and arrested 5 junkies, the dealer who's been dropping stuff off at least 20 times a day while we've been there wasn't touched even though he was making a delivery 6 doors up from the raid.
Dont you just love our police force, only good for catching motorists.

I just went with the fact that it is quite well known that the boat is an ex Gib. runner....that's why it's "D.X" (The ex)
Unfortunately I can't get that much hp anytime soon as I'm 15!
Cheers anyway, Maxim

Cheers, the leaf just went with the name n colour scheme,
"Gunrunner" is cool, however anyone on here who then saw the boat would know it wasn't my own name....
Oh well, all could change, gonna b a long project this one!

Max I wish you all the very best with your project and don't let rude comments from the likes of Gav and Mr Rob dampen your spirits. Your enthusiasm for boats the water and the way of life should be an example to all considering that you are only fifteen - Keep it up and Ill come out for a test drive when your up and running - rach (john's misses) ps all northeners sense of humour is not malicious!
