How about a reduced level of membership for those who'd like to support the club, but don't have a boat, or have one that is too new?

Could be a reduced subscription fee, say, 50% of 'full' membership.

More wonga for the club, more interested people helping to support it etc.

Why oh why do these things always have to culminate in a Black tie event!

It was sounding so interesting until that point.

Whats this, do i sense sarcasm coming my way?

Well they do say you reap what you sow.

OOD, I do not have an "old boat" in fact i am "Boatless" at the moment.

I am having trouble making my mind up on my next purchase, but then i have three years to make a decision anyway.

Guess ill know it when i see it.

Well, the girls like it and they have to put up with enough from us fellas during the year so its the least we can do. Besides it allows us blokes to chat boats, drink, eat and take the peeess out of each other. What more do you want?

Im not a fan of "Clip Ons", thanks for the offer, about the right size though.

Yeah, i know the ladies love a black tie do, my wife certainly does.

Ive never been one for uniforms and unfortunately I find spending an evening done up like one of the "Ramones"along with hundreds of other clones the least bit pleasant.

Ive just sold a 16 year old boat.

So to join this club, you can own any motorboat as long as its over 15 years old?

What about racing? Whats the details for race boats?

More info please.

Never found a problem with it myself as you are talking to fellas not the "uniforms" but whatever, if you aren't happy with it then you're not happy. You are going to miss out though.

Well, someone to stop flicking "peeess" for a start!

Nah, your right OldMan, sounds like a laugh.

My fault Matt, been too busy as OOD had asked me to post it. I'm supposed to be retired but have no time, it's ridiculous. OOD and myself found Cossack/Stiletto, etc etc tucked up along side "Follett" on it's trailer. Saw it on the DVD JF did for me on the last Round Britain Race in '84, going like a steam train. Must have missed a couple of legs though as it didn't finish in any of the prizes. Passed John Baker and myself in Flippin Eck five miles from the finish line in the '87 Cowes-Torquay-Cowes Race. Posting four pics now and will put them on the proper thread later.
