If the weather is crappy I dont think I will make it. We will see
It may be a bit damp to start with but wind northerly so should be nice and calm.

Check your DryStack's operating!! (if applicable)

We're still hoping to go - but at the moment Saxon Wharf Drystack is not operating as the diesel in the forklift has frozen and gone waxy - and the one at Bembridge is not operating as the yard is too icy to run the lift safely!

We'll know later today if Saxon Wharf should be running by tomorrow morning, but it may be worth others checking they can get their boats launched before they travel!
Assuming all goes well, we're aiming to be at Bramble Bank about 12.00, and will call on Channel 72 to see who else is around.
Hopefully see you all tomorrow!

Hmm - that sounds like a bit of excuse to me ..... modern diesel has anti waxing agents added - its 'only' been down to -6' ish ...... and its above freezing out there now....

I'm just hoping the engine starts on the boat - off to check in a bit .

Hopefully see you tomorrow Trev...

Hi, I would still like to go but unfortunately I don't have a seat. If anyone has a spare seat then please let me know, I'll be traveling down form Swindon so I don't mind where you are going from. Thanks

90% of the snows gone now, 100% if the areas been salted. Temp up to +8 some areas of Hampshire.
Fired mine up and went for a little run nice and flat, not too chilly at speed.

Should be a nice run out tomorrow.

Just back from SDS. It is still very icy under foot, as is Saxon & Shamrock Quay. If we get alot of rain over night, they should all be ok for tomorrow.

I am travelling with Mrs 250, plus son & girlfriend (and dog). As it is a sizable group, we are going to use the Fast jet to cowes and then taxi round to the Folly.

See you all there

Steve
