Good to see you all, nice turn out



Hope you all got back OK, that fog was thick, got within 50m of the Portsmouth - Ryde ferry before i could see her, heard her a way off though.

So much easer with GPS,until i stopped an thought about the traditional methods I had forgotten how easy we have it now.

Good pics Matt! A great day but the ice on the seat on departing the folly was a bit of a shock !

Not an ideal start for me to pop chamber in the tube before getting out of Poole Harbour though!

Many many thanks to Steve for trying to get hold of a clamseal in Cowes on a cold winter Sunday lunchtime, and especially to Mark for digging one out from the back of his boat - got me home very well with no probs at all (and no fog ! Will get the seal back to you ASAP )

Interesting weather - flat calm - and thick fog - (hope Steve is not still doing 4knts up Soton water.....at least it was in the redjet) Very attractive looking whisps of fog/haze & sunset heading back to Poole an easy 35knt cruise in good vis all the way to the West- with a 40+ blast up the harbour.

Thought the shingles bank had a big standing wave on the way back before we realised it was the bank itself sticking out a long long way from the water . Didn't fancy getting to close and was getting cold by that point.

Have emailed RIB SHOP with a view to getting them out to do a mobile patch on the tube ASAP so fingers crossed ! ( or if anyone else has ideas of how to get it patched ASAP without getting the boat out please please let me know)

Better than i thought, its a very light boat but feels very planted. frugal on fuel,Jumps nicely and achieved 36 on stationary tide and 30 against tide and still very occasionally over-revving.
Mostly pulling 5950 -6000 rpm. running the 15 pitch. poss a 16 pitch, but currently it is a tad slow on the pick up:crazy. What next dd?? if i pitched up to a 16 ??
sorry to hijack the thread a tad!!

Twood be even slower off the mark with a 16". Where's the cav plate, relative to the u/side of the hull?

Yup - thanks Steve for organising the run - and Thanks to MarkB for shepherding us back up Southampton Water in very thick fog - our lack of GPS meant we would probably still now be going round in circles or stranded up Ashlett Creek without his guidance!
Here's a few pictures (before the Fog!).
Now - what date was the annual Nacho Run to Yarmouth going to be ..... ?

Peter M, thank you so much for a great day out. I met some great people and I enjoyed every second of the run to Cowes and back. Nester is a fantastic boat.

Great to meet everyone, we must do a barbecue in summer. Glad the weather held ok
though damn cold, still a soak in a hot bath followed by a roast warmed me up.
