"Can you imagine the torque?"

Probably very little, when spread across the whole transome like that - will cancel each other out I imagine.

One big one in the middle however!






Know what I mean /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Had a bit of a fuel snag with it today Bill.


Had to drop the anchor at the rush!

Pinched Fuel line starving the engine!

£7500 engine, but still can't work without fuel!

Getting sorted though, more fun tomorrow!!

This is going to sound like I'm having a go at rib drivers but I'm not. Honest.

Don't you get bored just belting around? Doesn't the novelty wear off?

I ask because in the dim distant past I was a rib instructor and and while I thorougly enjoyed the teaching and the excersises, I could never imagine spending a day just belting around in one.

You're right Duncan, Once you've been fast thats it!

I much prefer using it as a working boat, close quarter manouvering and stuff!

It has been purchased to join the power school fleet at our school.

Fancy a bit of moonlighting from the Job?

Just an old saying from RN days!

I admit I wasn't having a blat in that Photo, but I was on my way to have a blat!

Why do you ask? Does it mean something different in your part of the world? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

If your ever going down to Haslar give us a pm, your welcome to come and have a pint, or three!!

Most of the jollies I have down there are all ex-Job or serving!
Come to think of it, that would be a reason to stay away!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Anytime mate, you'll be welcome.

Al.
