Evening Cruising...

Does anyone ever venture out in their ribs in the evenings during the week?

Not as a rule but I have been out at night and I must say it raises the boating/RIB experience to a much higher level.

Something that I would like to certainly do more of.

OK they reported that they 'did the Solent' again....I finished work at 5.05 and joined them for a nip across to Haslar. By then they had done Lymington, Cowes, Pompey.

We ended up in Port Solent for dins all 8 of us by then!

We're trying to get out Fri, Sat or Sun if poss Ben if you're around please join in!

I love the after - work stuff....blows the cobwebs away!

Sorry benc,

I was too preoccupied with my own bottom, and that funny delayed noise as the anchor meets the deck on the way up!

you need to sort that out... you dont want an anchor slamming around.

I have my anchor in my front locker, normally with some fenders stacked on top of it to keep it in place...

Thanks for the response tho

Benc,the bottom of your boat looked pretty clean to me,definitely orange rather then slime coloured-and I saw plenty of it-I didnt know tornadoes could fly like that.

Well, they shouldnt.. but I guess I was hitting too much power :|

I did notice farfetched left the water quite a bit to... I definately need more practice in rougher water :P.... going through the solent is just too easy for this boat
