Non Tidal Thames Feb 28

Some snaps from our cold trip up the Thames on Saturday.

We launched at Marlow next to the lock and went all the way up to Henley where Cafe Uno provided Hot Chocolate and lunch!

Yeah.

The photo is deceptive and the wake is minimal as you can see!

Nick thats so true!

People complain about the wash from our D-Class lifeboat on the broads when we stick to the speed limit.

But when we go flat out they want us to slow down. dispite smaller wake.

we cant win!
