    hey theres these guys, they tell me they have come up with a radically new safe offshore design,
    its been like kinda visualised by them ,
    not backed by science or sound engineering principles or nuffing,
    but they say the more it heels the safer it gets,
    my question is, if it gets a deck is it safe to cross the north atlantic in winter with 8 potatoes aboard

    these guys are used to dishing it out and threatening people,
    but they say they can accept whatever scientific analysis which proves this is unsafe

    I'm finding it hard to visualise the 8 potatoes, since i'm just a naval architect. They had better come up with some real edgy sketches to show me what they mean and how they will balance 8 potatoes on it.. :p

    You need to consult a registered chef before risking it peter.
