I know this one hasn't even taken place yet but was wondering depending on the success of it is there likely to be a second run in the summer as there was last year?
I just can't see me getting a powerhead gasket, fitting it, sellin my boat, getting new one and fitting engine/seats by july 7th!

Hello all.

I have demanded from Captain Chaos this very morning a position as "beer handler" on board HMS Hampton Muncher or whatever his current boat is called. However as I disturbed his trip to the swimming baths "for a couple of lengths and a swift sauna" with a burly man-pal of his and put him off his stroke (didn't realise he could use his mobile in the pool) he hasn't rung me back. Is there anyway of me getting a petition on here to get the Captain to include me in the Poker Run?

The Duke

Righto Poker Runners.

Due to a wee postal problem/misunderstanding/unhelpful council, the usual 'licence to sell alcohol' that's obtained for the poker run events, aint happening!
What this means is, during the evening party in the boat shed at Drivers Wharf, we will not be able to supply the strong stuff!

Soft drinks, and of course the grub (on this occasion, both supplied FOC within the poker run entry fee) is unaffected.

So, all you boozers are going to have to treat this event as a 'bring a bottle' party if you wish to drink anything alcoholic.
Sorry about this, but it really is out of our control, and obviously it's only for this particular event and all things being equal, will be back to normal for the next poker run.

regards

jf

That's a bummer!

Seems a shame someone didn't manage to find these faults before rigging it all!

All new kit for RB I assume.

i suppose the real question is, how soon prior to fitting did 'one' find that all the pumps are faulty. Then I'd be asking myself how comes i seem to have a 'stock' of faulty pumps?

Or is 'one' claiming it to be sods law?

Taz's post sounded like he'd had 6 pump failures. A pretty unforgivable situation.

Maybe his choice of words was a little misleading, and he should have said, 'I aint got any pumps worth fitting', so haven't got the boat on the water yet.

Never mind, you'll need new ones for RB anyway, if you're taking it seriously that is.

lets get it right.the pumps were either supplied with customers engines or arrived with boat .
1 arrived with tazs 260 which has seen better days after its misshap
2 tab pump came with boat ,motors on last legs
3 tab pump never got from guy he bought boat off.
4 came with 260 bought off here .needs selenoids
efi pump of tazs motor seized,the other low on pressure .
these were all checked and never fitted,
so rather than waste time and money pretending to race next week i surggested to buy new.
its got feck all to do with sods law and feck all to do with you
