    ABF goes well Al,all Ive heard so far is "its faster than the caddy Dad"...that remains to be seen

    All credit to Alvin Powell at Alvin Powell motorsport Saltash,a gem of a find a nicer more helpful person you,d struggle to meet and a genuine motorsport pedigree to boot.

    Mackerel has been something else,because all the big Scottish pelagic boats have caught their quota and are tied up till the new year (new quota starts) it has just left the handline boats with any quota to fish for the last month,and the only mackerel has been between Mevagissy and Plymouth,so basically theres only been 6 or 7 boats fishing,we have topped the catches every day (no modesty there Reg).
    The supermarkets have been fighting over the few mackerel availiable which has resulted in exceptional prices for us,so its not a lot of fish when you have the whole country fighting over it Mick!
    Unfortunately now the supermarkets have delisted it now due to Christmas,so there is no demand,and in the new year the big pelagic boats will have their new quota so the price will drop right out of it,hence why the change to netting !

    Good work, you can afford to bring more cider bladders and a porta potty for camping this year. Might save Al's paintwork from your piss

    Im already booked truth be known Jim,and I have no recollection to what you refer,as far as I am aware neat apple juice is not harmful to paint,but I may well have to bow to your superior knowledge on that one.

    You're such a tart Bondy.

    What do you use to keep the salt air from turning it into a furry mess?

    So what do you do in this shitty weather,spend the weekend polishing,what else so the Weber tops received some more attention

    Then decided to set to on the inlet manifold which was pretty rough started with 80 followed by 120 then 600 and finally 1200 before polishing






    And finally rebuilt Bens RMs at the beginning of the week, and he got them fitted
