Yeah, it was a nice day - I was told earlier on today that everything flattened right off out past the heads later on that day.... typical eh?
39 knots for me then was flat out, but 400rpm below my engines max... Humber think that a drop from 21" to 19" prop will bring up the revs for my boat, but in theory, I reckon that will reduce the top end speed - since I am no expert on this, I am just waiting to see at the moment. I should imagine I will ultimately end up with a stainless prop, but that will only come when I have cleared my visa bill
I will definately be up for Caldey Island - hopefully, the wind will be a bit more in our favour next time you are down. Ireland isn't really *that* far either I don't think, although it's pretty well a full tank of fuel for me though, so I will have to see what consumption I can get in the next few months now the engine is properly run in.
The Haverfordwest night for us is Tuesday 15th of June, provided it's good weather, there are usually a fair number of boats going up. I have just checked the tidetables now, and there aren't any really good tides in August, but I will check with some other locals first, cos Cresswell could still be possible even on the normal springs in August.
Video etc... sounds good - I sent you an e-mail earlier on with some links.
