So run it past me again... Are we going to the Scillies or the Isle of Man?
Well spotted guys. Casquettes it is. Charles was suggesting much the same plan as Dom described.
Clarky - there will be at least one even bigger RIB (9m) with a more experienced skipper, on the trip, so plenty of opportunity to jump aboard a larger ship if it's a bit lumpy.
Mike - that's a good chat up line "Your wife is welcome to sit on my engine" but you're supposed so say it directly to the ladies, otherwise you could get into an awful lot of trouble!
