Took the boat out for a quick spin today. Still a little rough around Brixham and loads of wood and debris floating around. Moored up in Torquay for a little while and took some more pics. Got a seat now . I think all the jobs are done now and I can get on with just using it .

Great looking boat Paul.
I was looking down on you from Daddyhole Plain early this afternoon. I was glad to see you sitting on a seat-but what about your mate?? He had to stand!
PS Were those two raceboats with you as well?

No. I just thought I would give them a race . He had the advantage of trim tabs though I kept landing to oneside so couldn't keep up my speed. I was alot more comfortable though looking at them going through the waves

I'm going to get a bottle rack come seat to go behind the helm, but not till next year. I am using it for diving most of the time so people sit on the tubes anyway.

Hi tue

It's a shame you did'nt come round to our neck of the woods, it's been as flat as romanian gymnast all day and not too cold either.

Hi Paul

Looking good

Been kicking myself all today, went past the seafront it was just right for a run out. I'm waiting for another trip out before I put mine away for the winter.
Had other plans on though.

Did you go see the whale ?

Went to look for it. But I was told it was at Oddicombe. I have just seen on the news its at St Marys. DOH!!

Oh well. Was plotting wrecks into my GPS so was over that way anyway. Guess its an excuse to take the boat again to go and find it. Hope they haven't moved it by next Sunday. You'll have to come along too

Looks good! Yellow seems to be the 'in' colour for RIBs at the moment. Looking forward to seeing some dive photos. Hope you have many happy hours in her.
