It was already 1.31 in Alnwick. I'm sure it will be higher again by the end of the week end.

Good plan. We could ALL make plans for the hijack and two hard boats, a Jetski, Gotchi, Jim and I might turn-up.

We launch from Amble next to the marina.

Also have a mooring down there so we can get straight out.

Maybe we could also hijack a container of XD100, mix it all up and free fuel for all etec users in the UK for a couple of years

I have visions of you watching the AIS very intently just before making the Floptilla crossing.

I want no part of it.

Besides, my next boat is going to be a diesel.
