I take it you've also got a series of prop marks down your port tube from impulse. An evil bit of driving

Not AJ's fault as we were both hit by waves pushing us together, the first part of the crossing was quite rough but the videos never give a true reflection of the sea state.

Lucky I had my suit on as I would have been soaked

Great vid mate, after watching that we were closer than I thought. To be fair we were chattin at the time and it was choppy and drifted to close for comfort. I won't go out and get the R18NOB car plate just yet

I know this is also on this year's Alderney Thread (Alderney + Floptilla 20/21/22 July 2012 ) - but I guess this is where anyone looking for Alderney videos would look, so I'll put the link here as well.
It pales into insignificance though relative to Whisper's production masterpiece!
