Daniel,
I'm starting to get the impression that you only go out when it's rough and the big boats are all tucked up!

Hi Daniel

Looks a bit bleak at the needles. How the new engine going. Do you notice a lot of difference or not yet.

WHAT???

Can someone honestly say that this is an enjoyable experience??
I'm sorry but I think noot.
Looks like an endurance test to me (remember the Japanese on TV??).

Being out in difficult conditions IS fun, providing it's not bad enough to be dangerous. More of a challenge, and can be very rewarding. It's like mountain biking in the rain, get soaked, get cold, but is extremely enjoyable once you get into it.

I agree with you the fun is when is bumpy, wavy and you just fly on top.
HOWEVER, I disagree with the term 'COLD'. Have you loooked at the pics?? The sea is short of murcy colour, fog on top of the needles. OMG!!! wouldn't wish that to my worst enemy!!
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
I preffer it HOT, VERY HOT!!
I'll post some pics from the Aegean from last August with BLUE SEAS, No clouds, 3-5 meters waves the RIB Flying and 37 deg C. No wet gear, no gloves just swimming shorts
This is WHAT I CALL FUNN!!
Believe you me if you try this once you will never ever want to go anywhere else again. EVER!!
I will also post some pics from Greece at the end opf this week. Weather sunny, bright, temp 15-21 deg C, sea state calm today but force 6-8 by the weekend and this is winter.
Sorry but I might be spoiled

What's wrong with cold? I love being out in the cold. And diving in the cold is fun too. Nothing better than spending 30 minutes or so in 4 degree water in a leaking drysuit. This wonderful weather is all part of what Britain is!
