What a great offer. I'm seeing if I can rearrange things to do this. Very interested.

Great offer Andre, but wife's birthday Saturday, still tempted - but boat up on the drive and very vulnerable to a manic wife when told I've gone for an all day jolly in the Solent.

man up and get the mrs telt you are going out to play (or leave a note if bottle crashes).....then run out the door while she is in shock and bring flowers home when you return, everyone is a winner. the good lady can go treat herself in peace without you following her saying, "can we go home yet" every 10 mins and you get a day out on boat.

No, you've booked her and you in for a Wet & Cold Experience for her birthday - you just KNOW she'll love it! Afterwards you're going to her favourite restaurant and you've got her some shopping vouchers as well!!

What? She doesn't want to go on the Experience?!? Damn, well, hey! She could spend the vouchers and you'll meet her at the shops afterwards?

Since I posted the invitation the weather forecast for this Saturday has changed to the worse perhaps Saturday 29th will be a better choice especially as the forecast is much nicer.

This is not a demo only a Jolly and I am sure a better weather would be more appreciated.

Some may recall but this is not my first invitation for RibNet members. In 2009 (such a long time ago) my demo rib was a Parker 900 Baltic Seasafari. The first Jolly was in the Solent and the second one was an overnight trip to Guernsey . Both exceptional trips and this one is long overdue

That's exactly the same with Mrs FZ and myself

If you can make it I'd definitely recommend that you go out with Andre on Grey Mist. You won't regret, she's a cracking boat.

Hi Andre, I happened to have had a brief ride on your Parker from Gunwharf Quay many years ago and would enjoy another excursion on a bigger craft across the Solent if you still have places available. Here's hoping the weather improves for the 29th. Steve

Guys, due to a better weather forecast the Jolly is on Saturday 29th September and we meet at Southampton Dry Stack at 9-930 AM

We have two names down so far. (it does not have to be 5 names as we will still go even if only 2 are on the list)

1. Solent Seadog ( BTW , do you remember which Parker rib it was. Was it the seasafari one)

2. ribber

I was out this morning in the Solent for a demo not a Jolly and the winds were very strong but the sea state was acceptable and just right for a good demo. I would still not want that weather on 29th.

This Jolly is without any obligation and I can promise you that you will not get a Parker rib catalogue nor a Parker goodies bag perhaps a pen
