Antigua trip

Just got back from another trip to Antigua. A Retube for one of the Seafari 13mtr and the other one came up from Dominica for a refurb/ new strakes.
An excellent couple of weeks working for some really good people.

Nice work

You didn't travel on Monday the 10th with BA by any chance cos we were on that plane. Had to wait at the airport a few hours for our connecting flight

Hi Andre

Thanks, no we got back yesterday on the Virgin flight via Barbados with a two and a half hour delay because of a control surface issue. Blokes crawling all over the wing in the pissing rain! Highly entertaining!!
