Hi graham
cant make it sunday I had arranged a radio course for the saturday so that I could tag along but a couple of lads needed to do sunday so I've swopped it for them.
Anyway this time it can be totally down to Gary instead of both of us when he tells you its not rough!
Knott End launching is a bit up in the air at the moment. At this time of year no-one pays anyway but it looks increasingly like the ferry wont run next year in which case the launch will doubtless be free, but the slip will be muddy and they wont dredge the sides.
Its not always rough here honest!

the piccie was 29th dec Blowing a hoolie day before and day after but that day was excellent. Went to launch at yacht club but slip was a skating rink cos dinghies had been racing day before and their wash off water had frozen on the slip itself. Had to do quick detour to Stanah which was usable as no-one else had been on it to drop water to freeze. It wont be freezing this weekend but if you do come over on an icy day just walk the slip first to see what the surface is like. Mate of mine got stuck on there on ice last year with a 2wd car. As soon as he tried to move back up slip it just slid down a bit nearer to that incoming tide. Had to send wife to bring man with L/rover to pull him up.

Hotel at top of slip but boat out on the road and whilst not a lot happens at knott end you only need one vandal. I can probably get your boat in the local garage or round the back at your own risk if it wont fit thru the doors and onto his MOT hoist-depends on the beam and how generous the owner is feeling!

To change the subject is it true lifeboat man that use ribs were silk socks under there thermal socks for warmth, i spoke to a bloke on the Burnham on Sea lifeboat and he told me this, is it true?. I have asked wife to get me silk socks but she has had no luck.

well lifeboat man simon (atlantic 25)says he wears a bunny suit but will not be drawn on subject of silk underwear/socks. Lifeboat woman Nikki (47ft Tyne) says she wears big white wooly socks and its none of your business about anything silk that she might be involved with.
Personally I think its a myth put about when a certain Mrs lifeboatman found them in his car.
