Hi SamT

No idea what the speed is yet - dont have a GPS to check, and on the solent trip it was a little choppy so was nowhere near WOT at any time. Gave her a run out in Cardiff the week before where she seemed to have good speed - but very hard to tell in knots. I am looking into a GPS, but as I have no 12v power onboard options are a little limited.

Also, there were no 4.7s around - just 2 SR4s and the 5.4s

Sad to have missed it.

I'm sad to have missed this one.

Had to sit in a safety boat all afternoon sheperding Oppies.

Next time maybe.

Superb day out!

It was good to meet you and your other half, pass on my thanks for helping us out on the slip
You managed to get some great pics, good to see a few of my SR4 on the water. Glad we weren't the only ones in an SR4

Wish I'd taken you up on the offer of a go in the 5.4, defo reckon they're the way to go in conditions like we had on Saturday! Will have to speak to you more about garage dimensions some time

Cheers for organising this one, could not have picked a better day!!

Cracking photos all!

I did however remind myself why I ALWAYS wear sun cream...

I don't have an attitude, I have a personality you can't handle.
