Great photos Richard.

How different are those conditions from the weekend.

Always wanted to go out to Old Harry and Lulworth Cove.

How long did it take you?

Phil

Hi Phil,

It took us about an hour to get from Calshot to Poole Harbour entrance (with me driving!!), maintaining 37 knots (being careful about petrol consumption, lots of pot markers and what looked like some kind of exercise with boats, a helicopter and some marker flags).

We met friends in Poole then went out to Old Harry. This part of the journey we did very slowly (12 - 15 knots most of the way) so we could get right in to the shore and have a look at the rock formations (my friend is a Geography teacher!).

We spent about 3 hours in total, cruising from Dolphin Marina (Poole) around the eastern side of Brownsea Island, along Studland Bay to Old Harry, further west just into the far eastern end of Swanage Bay, then back along the coast, into Poole Harbour going round the western side of Brownsea Island and back to Dolphin Marina.

If you fancy company when you go, give us a shout!

Alright for these gentlemen and ladies of leisure, some of us were working, huff, mutter, mumble, moan

Isn't it about time you sent Richard back out to earn a crust or two?!

Funny you should say that... He started today. Things were getting very serious - yesterday, as I opened up the throttle (beautiful calm sea) he told me to keep it down to 37 knots - worried about fuel consumption! Hmmm. whenever I ask HIM to slow down he tells me he has to keep up the speed to keep it comfortable! So there's one rule for him and one for me .

P.S. When are you coming out with us next???

In Mr B's defence.... (kind of)

1) 37kts probably a good cruising speed in calmish conditions giving reasonable consumption vs speed. 45kts & WOT is V thirsty even with a HPDI! When he gets the floscan working you can play around with RPM vs Speed vs Litres per hour. Can be quite interesting as 20kts is usually higher consumption per mile than faster speed.

2) Scorp's do go better at 35kts than 25 generally!

3) He is the captain!

As for coming out with you again, love to, just waiting for the invite See PM.

Do you know the price of diesel has gone up to 33p per litre at my local canal shop. Terrible!


PS Nice photos.....
Good bit of coast that and the bit around to Lulworth, when they aren't firing at you from the ranges!
