Steve's Blow up thing
 
If you go to Twickenham on Saturday you'll see thousands of them.

Take just two of them and strap a couple of 2X2 timbers between them, then strap a Suzuki GSXR600 behind that and let it rip.

Seemed odd, mail ordering a 90HP Outboard. But it turned up today on time, everything in the box.

Whilst the truck driver hoped I would have a fork lift,. I was hoping he'd have a tail lift. So we could rip off the carton packaging over the pallet and slide it straqight into the Rangey.

Instead it ended up out on the drive for most of the day whist, I attempted to ignore the logistical obstacle of getting inot the garage round th corner.

Then it started to rain didnt it. I was forced to lob it in the back of the range rover and manouvre it into the garage by hand. I'd left it too late to sort out anything else.

Original seats were a bit to professional for our beach orientated use so I've looked around and found these.

60 each and made entirely of polypropolene.

Re: Steve's Thundercat
 
Agree seats look very good, how heavy... suppose you could always get them trimmed if you wanted too later on ?

New seats came in today.

Onthe bottom are 6 mounting holes and a small drain hole.
