Your rib seemed to handle the rough very well and by golly it looked rough

I hope it's a bit better for hadd and myself on Saturday.

Good vid was lumpy down our end of Cardigan Bay on Tues working between Fishguard and Cardigan, but was brightened up by a pair of Bottlenose launching out the side of the swell next to us and surfing in just beneath the surface

Agree re those Ullmans, they look to be doing a grand job....

Thanks for messages ... and thanks for that movie still Willk - hadn't spotted that but love it ! Its a shame the video stooped before the return leg as it as some of the most challenging ribbing Ive ever done - Maverick is simply bombproof - tonnes of grunt, great manouverability and handles the rough stuff really well - far better than I am at the helm and I think my bottle would go long before Maverick would falter !!

Not sure the 6hp susuki back up would be any good at all in that stuff so may change to a 15hp or the new 9.9A .. any thoughts? I think the 25hp too big for back up on transom ..?

We stayed overnight at the Bodysgallen Hall - lovely place with good Welsh beers although we forgot it was Valentines Night so we felt a little out of place amongst all the smoochers ....
