Great pics Jools. If you thought it got slightly wet in Topaz just think how wet it would have been on TomKat

There aren't many people......

that the QE2 turns out to welcome but the thought of missing the Graeme/Jono/Jools combo was just too good to miss .

Only sorry that I wasn't with you all

The slip we used was "Crosshouse Hard" in Southampton - a stones throw from RIBEX and Ocean Village Marina.

The page on the new updated boatlaunch website is

http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/Site_dataPage91.html

I'll post Geoff the pictures of the slip to add to his site.

Good slip - but stick to the middle as that part extends, the sides drop off! - Could clearly be seen at low tide on the Sunday.

Jools,
How was the Ribcraft 5.85 demo? What were your thoughts on the 115EFI Fourstroke? Have you ordered a similar setup on yours?
