Westie:
Elton - you're moving swiftly on the boat. When I saw you last, I thought it was still up in the air.

A flying-boat ? Catalina or Sunderland? :P :P

Spot 'em before you fish for 'em.

Way to go Elton :D

Stitched up like a kipper on that one. :D

If you're being chased by a police dog, try not to go through a tunnel, then on to a little seesaw, then jump through a hoop of fire. They're trained for that.

Westie - you'll find I'm a bit impulsive :D

Tell the wife to look out for a speedboat bursting through the streets of Grundisburgh soon :D

Hi Guys, Got home from Ardgour about an hour or so ago,the boat tows like a dream, and the reversing into the garden was a piece of cake....but I think it was a case of more good luck, than good judgement. My mate phoned, I told him about it, he says, do it again then !!!!!! :D :D

Paula, thanks for that, but I even impressed myself putting it into the garden.....amazing eh! I can reverse things at 40 foot long, but a 1/2 ton boat, no chance.....wont be long till it gets to your part of the world either.... :D
