Thanks

It was a great trip although we did it all in one go so it was very tiring, luckily I spent a fair proportion of Denmark asleep in a double bed in the back of a friends American motor home whilst his wife drove!

Roads were great - no problem for the trailers.

70mph+ up a Norwegian Fjiord with an open exhaust has to be experienced!

We even had a podium against all of the cats from all over Europe as well!

Did you get any pictures, or are they already buried somewhere here on Ribnet?
If not I would love to see them

Bah ... after this afternoon's palaver I'd swap it for the old trailer and not even need to think about it for a second (not that the old trailer would fit the boat, unfortunately, as it was built round a Humber)

We didn't have many - not sure what happened to them! The RIB is pictured below that we took - I have an amazing memory of being sandwiched in the middle of the fleet of 35-40 boats mostly cats, with boats pretty much touching us on both sides doing about 40 mph waiting for the green flag to go up to start the race in the middle of an almost wide enough Fjord!
