Anyone from Jersey or the channel isles getting together

Anyone from Jersey or the channel isles getting together this year?

Would be good to get a few boats together and do a trip to St. Malo or Cartret.

Anything like that would be good.

We are trying to finalise arangents for the Cannonball Challenge, still hoping for a date of May 30th which will also tie in with a load of events on Alderney that weekend.

I'm interested, especially St. Malo. Haven't managed to get round to that one as yet.

Just Googled it, looks good.

I just have one teeny tiny* tube repair to do and then I am set.

* Clearly lying, it is massive. Did it myself while doing a course, made the lass driving jump I can tell you!

Well Ive got my a frame fixed now....and the trim n tilt unit sorted. :-)
just got to replace anodes and im ready.

What a nightmare replacing the trim n tilt unit was!

Everything that could go wrong, went wrong!
to save the trouble of taking the engine off completely as i did to remove the old unit last summer (was timley but went smoothly) I refered to the engine manual which siad to replace the unit: lock the engine up with the locking bar (i cant remember its proper name) then unbolt one half of the engine obviously not the half with locking bar on. then take the steering bar out and split the "p" brackets so i did this all went fine. up until in went to put the new unit on and i found that the weight of the engine was causing it to slide down the bar that it sits on.

After three hours of struggling to prop the engine up, hold the t&t unit in place and bolt it on with my two hands. i finally had the brilliant idea of throwing my tools to the floor!
then after calling for help my brother took great delight in showing me how its done.
SMUG GIT!

at least it works!
