Time of year

It absolutely IS that time of year - may it be a great one.

Katie is looking pretty good after her previous works and a makeover. She's deceptive, in so much as she looks like a wee RIB at first glance but is really massive when you do the math I bumped into the Stingher UK agent at a works dinner a while back - Ed's quite a character.

Here in the far north west, the sun is due to shine tomorrow and I'm due to be on my back antifouling the outdrive and various bits. A couple of decent days should see my girl ready for a sixth season afloat - there's a lot of buffing in 10m. The tubes are done as is the servicing. All the lekkie works.

Bring it on!

Lol, she can push-on when required

Treated myself to a new tender, picked up a 3D - 2.7, only 15kgs and packs into a large rucksack, not quite as durable as a traditional tender but half the weight - see how we get on this season. Also got the kids ( and big-kids ) a new inflatable to party on! It’s got drinks holders, a re-boarding platform and a bloody cool box!! oh, and its.............HUGE!!!!!

Nice Unicorn - you should ask JK to set up a sub-forum in SIBs. There's an Element on this forum that would have an electric engine on that in a heartbeat. I like how you shared your social media as well - the Queen and the Bishop one cracked me up.

I got the promised WX and herself is now basking under three coats of AF. Those damn outdrives have more surfaces than Ikea. I got a bit of prop polishing done too - it had been primed previously and was just manky. With enough use it should stay clean.

Hi Lee will do for sure. Not so sure how much spare time I will have this coming summer as I have just had "Grey Mist" coded to MCA CAT 3 R and plan to run her as a charter rib offering full day charters in the Solent
