Morning Rathi,

You work far too fast, you are putting us all to shame - good for you!

As far as a name goes, how about something related to mythical sea goddesses? Either Greek or Roman mythology, or Indian sea goddess?

AMPHITRITE The goddess queen of the sea, wife of Lord Poseidon. Amphitrite was the goddess who spawned the sea's rich bounty--fish and shellfish--as well as dolphins, seals and whales.

ARGYRA One of the sea nymphs whose name means the "Silvery One." She loved an Achaean man named Selemnus who was transformed into a river.

Lots more at this site:

Is that "Hurry hurry"   or am I thinking of Jilhdy ? What language Popeye?  Some of the words brought from the sub-continent by the British werent politically correct even then. What is the main language in Kerala ?  All of the suggestions so far might be better in the local language.

Apologies for unintentionally trying to corrupt your language : I didn't realise the term should have been 'jihdi'.  :embarrassed:
What I misinterpreted as 'jaldi' - 'hurry'  or 'quickly' -  was an expression frequently used amongst  my Indian workforce when I lived in the UAE so it's not surprising that some of my my guys used to look at me in a peculiar way whenever I jokingly mumbled 'jaldi, jaldi' during the course of work-site visits - they must have thought 'there goes that mad Englishman again'  %% or something more basic (but unprintable amongst polite company!)

Not MY language Popeye,  might be Indian or Arabic but well used by the soldiers of the Queen in the days of the Raj (check your Kipling books ) and carried on by generations of Tommies ever since. I had similar difficulties when I used the abusive term that said "your mother is a wh**e" to persitant beggers and the like, until I found out 20 years later that I had been saying that MY mother was a Wh***... no wonder they laughed in my face ! >>:-( :embarrassed:

Whatever top hull colour you choose,  below the waterline should be a dull-non gloss dark red. This traditional colour comes from the use of "red oxide" as a anti fouling paint and rust proofer, no longer used but the colour is still commonly used. Waiting for pictures with impatience ! :-))

how bigotted and two faced can some people be, when theycomplain, and want him/her banned.

how many of you on this site KNOW someone who have either been banned from or left this forum under a cloud, and then come back under an assumed name........

i just find it funny that we were all duped, lol , and to be honest, has rathi done anything wrong at all, i don't think so, and only feel sorry that he felt he had to do this in order to be accepted by us.........we should be looking at ourselves therefore if we give this impression to future members.

Hi,

What a hoot!

I had my suspicions early December when "our Rathi" got rather technical about Pratt and Whitney jet engines - perhaps I wasn't being facetious after all.

See http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=24270.50

Didn't those perfect  finger nails make anyone else suspicious? Obviously not using the files for their proper job - eh!

Just 'phoned a mate down the marina who was also suspicious - he can't stop laughing!

Saying all that, I think our Indian friend has shown what useful things can be made out of other people's  discarded kit.

I mean, just grok some of the photos that 'she' had posted.

Grok? Is this some sort of Zummerzet talk?

I bet the "blunt knife" bit gets moderated!

Bottom line this was a deliberate con, so there was no wrong? Give me a break.
Think about it, how do scammers work, yet those in suport condemn scammers, stop trying to be politically correct a spade is a spade.
Yes we should temper our langauge and be civil but expressing anger is valid.
As for the comment those that sent "stuff etc" chose to do so, well isn't that how a scam/con works how else would you know what is being sought.
