    oops lets try again. my name is Bob and my partner is Julia.
    We just got a "Herald Squire" on a Ford Transit Chasis.
    We are all involved in Water Ski'ing and have got "Herald" for towing the Ski Boat.
    Also it is somewhere to Shower and get warm after Ski'ing.
    I am loving your "Motorhomefun" already.

    My Ski Boat is a Bluebird Jetstar Ford engine and a Hamilton Jet Unit.

    We Ski mainly on a Lake near to Bradwell on Sea in Essex. We use Jet Boats for safety to our Ski'ers,
    The owners of the Lake will not allow Prop. Boats as they say it Damages the Fish etc.?
    The Lake is shallow in places so I couldn't use a Prop.
    I am a complete beginer at Ski'ing so drive most of the time.
    Julia is a good Ski'er and her Son,Daughter,and her Mum and Dad have a Boat.

    You're not alone with the idea in here. I don't remember skiing but we've one who sails, one or two motor sport and one uses it to support his light plane but I'm not sure how that works.

    Have you found out the big problem with "shower" in a MH yet ? Not a lot of water so a shower to clean not enjoy.

    Supporting Aviation

    Welcome to 'Fun. As Hilldweller mentioned, I'm using the MH to support aircraft. So far this has included collecting some spares from Switzerland and more recently as overnight accommodation at a flying instructor seminar.

    I'm not brave enough to try supporting aircraft in the manner illustrated by the attached video...

    Happy Travels,
    Richard W.

    Oh goodness! I've just seen this from the OH. He's been a bit cagey about things, but I didn't realise this was how we're meant to meet up when I'm in the Champ....
