No the cold is not affecting us a lot, idle engine heat are around 48 degrees running the engines at 4.500 revs the engine temperature are around 34 degrees which is a bit on the lower side but are not affecting us, we have isolated the oil tanks and the cables from the tanks to the engines in order to prevent the two stroke oil to freeze.

Cold on Sunday!

I've ordered uninterrupted sunshine - although the gentle north-easterly (so that the mainland will shelter those in the Solent) which I've also requested may make it a little colder than ideal.

.... and Bogi: a happy New Year to you and all your family from me and all the other Avocets.

We are having tonight no wind, clear skies and -5 degrees so fantastic weather for fireworks, we will fire up alltogether more than 25 kgs of stuffies

Happy New Year to you all, was great meeting you all here and in the Solent, hope to see you all with your RIB in Iceland 2011 when we will host Iceland Rib Festival 2011

Bogi, I now see that you have a "bad influence" on our Chris as he has now taken to ribbing at -14 degree C and also turned the rib into an ice breaker
