Cheers for Saturday Alan, can't believe I didn't twig who you were considering you give your full name as a login!!

Sorry I had to turn back, but it was nice to get out for a quick blast in company for the first time out this season. Got the prop out a few times going down the East coast so I think the boats going OK....

Give me a shout next time you're out, I generally need some notice, but weekend afternooons are normally OK.

Sorry to hear about that Pettal I'm getting the shivers just thinking about it!! Quite strange though as mine came with the a big jubilee clip around the elephants trunk, so maybe the guys at Barnet just forgot, not like them though!!

Any pics of the day out?? Got your backrests yet?

Hi Steve,

Yup a bit worrying, if you got a clip then maybe they just forgot to put mine on!?

Either way it has one now!

Nah, forgot to take the camera out......which in hindsight wasn't such a bad idea!

I'm gonna order my new seats at the end of the month as I'm a bit skint at the moment. But looking forward to sticking them on!

Which part of "throw me the mooring line" didn't you understand!?
