The database has un-fooked itself and I just wee wee'd my pants laughing at our transatlantic friends. Such a load of tosh, fook all must happen over there in the line of excitement when they keep on battering on about a now classic ENGLISH video. My goodness they are so sharp they even at one point managed to work out Jon runs diesels

Very good! but as we know, our US friends are very tetchy about puting life & limb at unecassary risk and that would surely be 'unecessary risk'!

It's a shame that 'Offshoreracer' is so brave he won't even make his name public. (other thread,..... http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...9&page=1&pp=20 )

Couldn't possibly be another alcohol fueled rant from 'Speed' or 'Kinfast' now could it.

I realise he must be a pretty tough guy. Just thinking but we could always introduce him to Mr. Mossberg.

Keep It up Fuller !

Scream and fly has a god outboard tech section, but sometimes you have to shake your head at the American you can't do that attitude.
Not saing that all Americans are like that, but there are some subtle differences 'over there'

Just test them out with some self irony or sarcasm

Just love that Danish sense of humour. Can't get enough of that zany Victor Borge but shucks, I guess I can't help myself coming from simple folk and all.

Did I pass?

Upon reflection, my apologies to Kinfast/Speed.

I'm pretty sure Mr Speed is a cool dude (so long as you forget beaks for a mo ) and isn't anywhere near my list.
