Well, why not drive to Torquay, leave your car at my place, load your sib onto my boat, go down to Plymouth together, launch your sib just outside the marina, and make a Grand Entrance?

In case you don't mind I would like to join you from Torquay also (if that's OK of course). I will tail the boat down from Gloucestershire and put in the water at Torquay or Brixam.
Cheers

Blimey! And I didn't even have to twist your arm!
OK, great stuff, we will sort out the details nearer the time.
PS Plymouth about 1hr 15 mins from here.

Oh, P.S. Manos,
I think it much better you launch at Brixham. Very good slipways and parking.
Torquay, bit of a disaster for launching, especially as they are rebuilding the Inner Harbour at the moment.
