Narked,

Kept it very formal and polite afterall Old Spice is now a coded charter rib so there is a loss of income to be considered in addition to several grands worth of damage.

Meda... ? given his age I think a nursing home with a travelling rug over his knees would be more suitable and if the United States of Europe want my vote for compulsory driving tests for boats they now have it!
Pete

Pete, that's a bit of a shame... well, actually rather a big shame after spending all that time getting the RIB looking so good.

You're welcome on "Blue Ice" for Herm if that helps?

Hi to charles and all,

Not sure how to go about it !!!


I would love to attempt/go on the crossing but, as a relative newcomer and new small Rib owner would not try this in my little baby.

I would indeed love the experience gained from such a crossing and the knowledge gained from such experienced ribsters on the big boys toys, so if anyone has a spare seat and would be willing please let us know.


thanks

Paul

ps \pete7 Sorry to here about your unfortunate damage

Hi Pete7,


I heard about your misfortune I am very sorry Pete. I hope it will be sorted out soon.

There are plenty of people going from the area to Herm perhaps hitch a lift? I hope you can make this trip be good to meet you as I was little busy on Saturday.


Glad you enjoyed the day.

All the Best

REMINDER

This cruise is almost upon us, so, start thinking about getting your ribs in order, start packing all the bits and pieces you require according to my last letter. Ensure you have a decent anchor, chain and rope. The smaller ribs should be departing as close to 09:00 as possible with the larger ribs departing a half hour or so later. It is very important to tether anything down on the deck that cannot fit into lockers, ensure all brackets etc are really tight as things do shake loose and can ruin the passage to Gsy. By all accounts, most everyone participating should make the run without refuelling - if you do not think you can make it with one tank, make sure you are able to refuel sensibly, also let Richard or someone else know of the situation.
HAVE A SAFE TRIP!

Charles, what length of chain and rope would you suggest for the Channel Islands?

I've got 10m chain with a 60m anchor line which is possibly a bit OTT (and a 7.5kg "bruce" on the end), but you can never have too much!

Oi, get your own ground tackle!

Seriously though, with your extreme tidal ranges, what length of anchor line do you Channel Islanders keep on board?
