Looking at the pictures, it makes me want to ask; "How many Forum members does it take to change a lightbulb/ (crew Indy):default_coat:?'

The answer to that one is not enough

1 for'ard rope

1 aft rope

2 with wandering fender each side, that concrete is not very forgiving on gelcoat

1 at the helm

1 barking orders at all the rest (I'll let you guess who that was)

1 very pretty and very good cook, tea maker and all round great company (No not Griff)

Very small rudders, looks so fragile.

Those props are each pushing water over those rudders powered by 500bhp engines. Make the rudders large and they would get ripped out. Look at the size of that stern thruster, no need for rudders berthing. And you always have one ahead one astern at your disposal. Many modern boats of the size of Robin's boat don't have rudders the propulsion swivels like an outboard beneath the waterline.

And there was me thinking that the stern thruster was actually for washing the crew's undies after a good vindaloo!

We have downed tools. Now going to GYA via taxi where we will Board MTB102 for the trip back to Lowestoft.

Indy is now ready in all respects to accept her boot topping and anti foul paint tomorrow.

Didn't know there were "Reds" around Doncaster... Some Roo-Bar!

Still I suppose it is "Northern Territories"
