It floats !!!!

After a 2 year break, I thought I'd better check that the hull isn't porous.

Next step is to syphon some fuel out of Chaos's boat and give it a run.

be rest assured Rob, the closest its had to a clean is when Gareth got SO BORED he hosed it down. And by that, I dont mean having a cheeky piss up the side whilst no-one was looking.
