So, there I was........at 08:30 this morning looking out the window of the Shorts Aircraft at the steaming mass of white sea below me, force 7/8, rain and not at all pleasant. I thought to myself I must be completely nuts. Actually, common sense prevailed to some extent, I had my Sportscruiser shipped from Weymouth to Guernsey last night and was on my way to Gsy to collect it. The rib was craned out of the hold of the ship and into the water, with me on it, over to the fuel berth (this was the most harrowing bit of the entire trip) filled up and drove straight into this seething mass of sea. The boat is FANTASTIC, performed superbly and as is always the case, the crew took a pounding, but the boat was fine. So. Richard you were right, and sorry we did not have that beer Julian and Brian.
