Steve


Your Vanguard just does the job year after year after year.
Don’t knock the most travelled vanguard ever………in the world…….probably.
Mine just sits in the barn most of the time……so it will be shiny.

I would hazard a guess Steve that your trusty beast HAS TO BE-
The highest engine hours, reliable, and flown craft in UK (The WORLD)?
John DOES huge milages but his current craft is almost "out the box"?  ;)


When Im at a classic car event Steve, EVERY oldish scuffed but clearly used and loved car gets MOST attention.


THIS is why Im SO popular with women.  8)

One of the reasons I try not to park next to Ron's craft, the dodgy paint, panel cracks and patched skirt on the vanguard tend to attract more attention than the shiny craft..............or is it the other way round 🤔
There's no such thing as bad weather, you're just wearing the wrong jacket!!

Thanks Kim that’s very kind…….But….Your craft is great.
And it’s one of only four in the world.
I wish there were many many more.
Mines just a mish mash of my ideas.
Bless you Ronnie - I was meaning from the "showroom shine" of your craft point of view  :)  I absolutely love my Otter and I know I'm very lucky to have one but it has to live outside 24/7 - and it looks it now! :(
See you on Friday 8)

I tell you what Ronnie - I'm not parking anywhere near your craft - looks fantastic! 8)
I shall hide mine, in shame, around the corner ;)

Trailer checked over.
Craft serviced, checked and checked and checked.
Washed and polished and ready to go………hopefully.
Toolbox sorted out.
New spares got and put into boxes.
What could possibly go wrong.


Even Nick says he is chastened and quiet


All seems too good to be true……I’ve forgotten something…….but what?
