John Haliday has a Mini Jem hanging from his Garage roof if that's any use?

If he's not on the forum I'm sure Chris Westgate would let you have his contact details.

John told me at the christmas party that he reads the forum, but hasn't joined because he hasn't thought of a silly enough name...... Laughing

Still not thought of a silly name so will use one given to me at birth.I do not have a Mini Jem hanging in the garage, but two kayaks.The jem is on the ground but has not moved for many years. I am also the owner of a GTM Rossa Mark 2. The Rossa has reasonable headroom and is not too dificult to get in and out of. It seems to let in more water than a scamp!! Sad If you have any questions on the Rossa I will try to answer them.
