Not bad at all down this way. Even though it's glassy calm out there for some reason I've elected to knock up a set of mooring lines for my berth instead. Might go for a night ex later on and probably lunch in the Ship and Crown tomorrow

Nice and clear here too, the Witch is also doing lines. Scary.

Would love to join you in the SnC tomorrow, but still boat hunting.

Up for that tomorrow if you want to return again after tonights visit. Quite jelous of you, especially being able to see you on AIS and what a great night trip it must've been in the pitch dark at 30kts. You'll have to give me a bit more than 20 mins notice next time, and I'll make sure I'm not half way through re-plumbing the house at 7pm on a Saturday

Could always do Dielette tomorrow and jump in the car somewhere.

I think the answer is to not be doing plumbing on a saturday night

That was a great trip, weather perfect and the boat didn't miss a beat. There's something about steaming along at 30kts on a pitch black night in the fog, let's you know you're alive

The only downside was the 154 litres of motion lotion @ 87ppl

Might need a different plan for tomorrow, maybe Sark but I'd have to see how long there'll be water in Creux harbour, open to suggestions anyway

Just off to take the spoils of last night's work to the dump. Text me your plan when you've got one
