No you did the right thing. Imagine sitting round the table in good company having just gone most of the way round the island and nobody singing Happy Birthday to you and nobody knowing it was your birthday - unacceptable

Many Happy Returns Mark.

Have a good trip all - Grey Mist is a super rib.

Weather's great, I'm jealous.

Shame my arm is still recovering....earliest I'll be back on the water will be for the Nacho Run.

FANTASTIC DAY!

Great to meet other Ribnetters including Lee, Steve and Trevor who joined in their ribs and special thanks again to Andre for taking us out round the Island and into Yarmouth for lunch. Very comfortable ride on the Parker, thoughtfully designed and well built.

Hope to meet you all again out on the water sometime. Photos and video to come.

Steve

Well what can I say, cracking day out with Andre on Grey Mist circumnavigating the I of W. Lovely boat, blue sky, perfect conditions and great company, what more could you wish for. Thank you.

Cheers Trevor for making my day happen and getting me reunited with the others and I hadn't been on the gin and tonic the night before...Click image for larger version

well we could not have had better weather. Super cruise in super company.
and just for the record I did not take you round the IOW it was you who took me . I did not get near the helm and at one time I was seated in the last row and after lunch I was not even on the rib with you

It was great that we were joined by other ribnetters like Lee on Katie, Trevor on Black Adder and Steve & Sarah on Grey Pearl .

Also a thanks to Lee for a blast in his Stingher WOW!!. Also tx to Ribber for his g+ts and Solent Seadog for his bacon sarnis. Would be great to meet up again.
