North Norfolk

I'm bored so I thought I'd post some pics of my outing from Morston yesterday. It was raining, and was very windy. Much fun was had never the less!
Pic1: The seals (not sails!) on Blakney point.
Pic2: Stopped for lunch on the point: Champagne and crayfish tartlets, courtesy of the mobile fish man back at the slipway!
Pic 3: Morston quay
Pic 4: Pulling the boat out. The first time we've managed to do it with either getting stuck, or needing a tow from someone else. The Renault Scenic just isn't designed for a muddy slipway!
Pic 5: The first outing for the new burgee. Thanks Cookee!
Pic 6: Arrived home, raining even more heavily than when we set off! (Only advantage is that is helps to get the mud off, so less cleaning required!).

the boat looks good first time i have seen it up close. like the mariner they are very good engines how do you find the handling in the rough i find i can bomb
along until the waves get to about 1m high then i have to drop off the speed
as the front lifts to high and then bangs back down on each wave but the rest of the time its ok

we must meet up some time

Yes Dan we must - I fancy a trip up the Thames some time!

Same problem as you with regard to speed in the rough. I found my self totally out of the water with the engine well over-reving yesterday as I hit big waves too fast! Must get some foot straps!
