Go out this weekend ?

Almost flat water on Sunday, was great to get out. Saw a couple of other Ribs out , any of you ?

Went pretty close to Lihou, but seemed to be a lot of floating granite bits in the water so thought I better turn round.

Apart from a fuel gauge that seems no longer to want to work everything else, for once, functioning.

Soon be spring !!!

Alan

Hi Alan,

Glad you got out!!

I looked at it from my bedroom window.......thought it looked cold, grey and miserable and settled in front of the fire for the rest of the day getting back ache on the sofa and watching the footy! (C'mon the Bolton!!)

Gutted today though as it was as flat as pancake on the east coast......just what I needed on my way to work!!

Is this your first boat?? Just by the way you seemed a bit wary of the granite floaty bits neat Lihou!

If you like when I get back from skiing (did I mention I'm going on holiday in two days!!!!!!! Yippee!!!!!!) I'll give you an orientation of what to look out for, what not to hit and how to get there........in roughly one piece!

Thanks.

No third boat, last one was a twin engined cruiser. previously stuck to the wider channels and never ventured round to the west coast. So the granite stuff gets more numerous.

Have a great holiday and when you get back would be great to explore more towards the west.

Naturally, followed by a pint!

Alan
