What a day! Very strange to go to the Folly without your own boat. Thanks to Pete & Mark for the lift from/to the Town Quay.

Great to meet up with old and new friends, very good company thank you. Appologies to the surprise caused by ships dog running through your legs under the table! Mark thought it was his lucky day ...

Our trip back to the mainland was painfully slow, we had to wait until 3.15 for the fastjet back, by which time the fog was well and truely down, the 23min journey took over an hour! Did at least to crash stops to avoid lost gin palace's that were lost in the Solent waters. All that money in a boat and no-one on board able to use it!!

A few pictures of the day

Thanks again
Steve

A big thanks for the lift Much appreciated Mark.

Here's the vid I took on the mobile on the way back. The quality isn't up to much, but it shows how unbelievably flat calm it was.

If only it showed how unbelievably cold it was......

Was surprised when Mark called when I stopped in Yarmouth. Did you guys stop as we thought you were way in front of us after we dropped Steve off..

We stopped for a cig and to see if you'd catch up, but you can't have been far behind us anyway. I'd only just come off the pontoon when you were going into your berth.

i'm afraid this has to be said, we always big up SDS and i have known Joe for a long time, but trying to charge Steve 225 to put his parker in is taking piss a little, i know some of them read the forum, i would like to know how they could justify that figure.
there's no malice in this post as they have never done me any wrong, if there is a good reason for that price i think they should have chance to respond, after all bad press get's around a lot quicker than good stuff and we've given them quite a lot of that
