Graham F and myself on Seahawk 3 and Les on Marmont (a very capable Humber 5.5 ) headed for Southampton waters to see Freedom of the Seas
Most impressive liner. Superb
Met Richard "Nauti Bouy" on route.
It was nice to see you Richard

We then had a quick peep at the Sports Boats & rib exhibition and off for lunch to Cowes. It was a good day for ribbing and the passage back to LA was most enjoyable

Here are a few snaps of the liner and one of Les at the helm of Marmont

according to the Daily Mail what you can see on photo 2 is a whirlpool which seats 20 persons. What a view they must from there!

Looks very impressive but not half as pretty as the QM2
Genuine products, low prices -
