We had 60 on the GPS heading to Cowes in the morning , recon it was blowing a 5 on the way back, sat easily at about 36-37 into the head sea with quite a smooth ride - only had her a month so learning every time we go out in her

Couple more pic's, its scary how much time you can put in to your hobbies, pretty much every weekend over the winter I was doing something or other on her to get ready for this season, but I won't deny I find tinkering is half the fun of boat ownership! ( Lucky to have very understanding other-half! )

Got a few more plans for her inc trim tabs - ran tabs on past boats and found them useful in certain seas/circumstances. A thorough clean and polish this coming week and we're good to go
