It took best part of 4 hours to do almost everything.

Refilling the drive leg oil, back up the hole it drained form,was lets say interesting and sorry for offending any bystanders with the language.

All done no big problems but needed a lift for Peter & his landrover when we left lauching too late and ended up the mud.

Standing back and looking at Tigger II she does not look anywhere as big as when she arrived on her trailer for the first time last year, maybe it getting to to go for somthing bigger
.
Lets hope for a day like this on the 7th (PLEASE)

Regards Gary

Hello Gary,

Tigger II did look quite large at the top of the slipway last year

I never saw the antifouling on the hull before it went in last year here - how has it held up?

While it may have been calm up with you recently, it's been pretty blowy here from the NE.... sufficed to say, I haven't been out this weekend (not cos it was too rough) because I have been grounded in the office working on servers

I know the feeling however you should ask,borrow,beg you local mercury/mariner agent for one of the screw in fillers that they have, then cut the fitting off the end for the bottle and put it onto one of those push down pump things that you get for the 5ltr cans of soap etc and away you go

Hi Gary Tigger II looks even bigger out of the water or have you shrunk the kids I think its to much to ask for a calm day on the 7th but lets keep our fingers crossed see you soon. Graham
