well observed

No police helicopter at all needed to take these shots, just a gopro on a painters pole, if you look you can actually see me holding it. From there its nothing but a quick photoshop job on the pole and you wouldnt know the difference.
And yes this is Jono Gartons boat (Orca) which I purchased last year, its been great and I am gutted the cold weather is back. lots of little adventures on it this year (one trip to France at Easter) but nothing as epic as the Alderney run and rescue from last August

Just One More

This was taken last summer in the Lake District, I towed Orca from London up there as I was granted special permission to power boat on Buttermere - such a difference running 30 knots on what was a glass surface, of course the views are also something special

Not a new boat but a new tow vehicle pulls it great and no problem on steep slippery slips so far!

Cheers Tony T, your right when I first bought Impulse I went through the whole debate about towing 'V' Dry stack. Although living in the Midlands is a pain if you want a quick blast on the boat the positive is I/us Midlanders are in fairly easy reach of many different coastlines.

I am certainly interested in trying the Welsh Riviera, just wondered if a bright yellow Dry suit would be an insult to you?
