I can assure you that the big yin was not neglecting his duties and was dealing with an Admin issue as we crossed the Irish Sea...

JK was worried he'd have to make do with the 12" plotter!

Anyway here are a couple of shots of you Danny trying to break another of Tom's boats as we headed up Rathlin Sound!

Thanks - hey, it looks bigger in the pics! Seriously, you'll note how careful we were with it and if I'm not mistaken you guys were witnesses to the further offer of the 850 for Whisky Worrying Duty in September.

(I recorded it on my phone too, just to be sure )

Billy, no I was only up annoying JK for the day (yesterday). If the weather was like here then the cabin will have been appreciated today - but I suspect the Redbay has still not had a chance to demonstrate the true capabilities of its hull.

I fear not. Any man who relishes a pint o' plain in front of the designated driver/dictator needn't expect to be kept on the crew roster for too long!

(good on yer, Polwart, for not leaving me to face a dry lunch/drink alone )
