I appear to have tripped across too.

I was dismayed that such obvious inexperience could be let lose without some sort of supervision. The managements failure to grasp the nettle is mind boggling!





Now Claysie about you not having a boat in Scottish waters..................

Also checking in for the first time but how much bandwidth did you say you had Nick ? :lol:
I can see things going very quiet over there if that decision is left as it is so you might want to adjust the rankings here , I'd hate people to think I knew what I was doing on a boat Image

No worries there - this site never falls over. The only problem here is all sheepshit lying about.

Likewise. My memory of our first encounter is a little hazy. :cheers

I should point out that we don't have published rules here; we make them up as we go along. You could be the first person to be banned for excessive use of outlandish emoticons.

Hello everyone most of you probably wont remember ToMo from the other place!....but Claysie will.

I seem to have c*~ked up my attempt at joining here - I wanted to be known by my old moniker but something blipped as I was filling in the details.

I'm not too surprised people have left 'the other place' I stopped posting on there about 4 years ago. but I still used sneak back to read the stuff.

Bet you do that too John.

Best wishes and good season everyone.
Would like to be clever, but had to retire

A few months ago I started a thread in the other place entitled "You used HOW much fuel" and it went on for miles. Well that incredible fuel consumption was Piers whose blog I looked at. (don't ask me why cos he's a stinkie and a rich one at that).

Silly boy.

How are you my ageing peach container?

Trying to click on the link and am delighted to see that your levels of technical competence are still as terrible as ever.
