I had wondered about the ropes myself - its funny because the centre rope is slightly longer on both sides.

I will just re-splice it myself.

Good luck with it Roy, great looking boat, love the tube colour. Now you have the first painful hours of running it in!

regards

Alex

Re checked the boat today - The life lines are not actually irregular lengths. - The centre loop in the picture has just been pulled down and the rope moved towards the centre in the d-rings. once you pull down on them all evenly it looks fine - I guess I should have made the effort before taking the photos - but i was too excited. Ill make sure they are all even in the next picture...

Thanks Jeff for pointing that out to me

Maiden Voyage went reasonably well.

To be honest I was getting a bit frustrated not being able to open up the engine more than 3000.

The force 6 that was rolling in to Falmouth Bay was ripping up 2m+ waves with breaking caps which was good fun but my 7 year old daughter did not like it much so we had to back down.

Anyway - the boat lapped up the waves with ease and it gave me great confidence to know that this boat will get me home even if I get caught out when the weather and conditions deteriorate.

No pics of the boat sorry it was far too wet and windy to get the camera out without a waterproof housing - We stopped to try and take a few pics of the sea - and this was the only non blurred one.

Weather permitting - Yes.

I still have the rest of the break in period to get out the way - another 1/2 hour at 4000 rpm - then 7 hours of any throttle I like but nothing above 4000 for longer than 5 minutes at a time (doesnt say how much time to leave between the 5 min sessions though )

I quite fancy a trip to Fowey.

But Saturday - I reached the limit of my youngest crew member and I promissed her no more rough stuff for a while - So I hope its not a Strong Southerly again.
