Default The resulting forces caused T2x to exhale strongly

I still maintain it was the boat builder's fault.

...... That's a single occupant boat..... You may be looking at a fuel cap... but I'll be damned if I can see anything remotely resembling a third helmet.

The boat was a Milesmaster made in England..... and reflected the time honored principles of British aviation..... including the original Comet Jetliner... which crashed repeatedly.
