Have a great day - some of us will be stuck at work

Had a look at the weather and tides... "DOVER WIGHT PORTLAND EASTERLY 4 OR 5, OCCASIONALLY 6. FAIR. MAINLY GOOD"

So it looks like you might have a bit of a bumpy ride up the Solent in the morning with wind-over-tide, but a smoother return journey back to Lymington in the afternoon. Great stuff.

Hi Pepper

We had a brilliant day. Sunshine with hardly a cloud insight.

I think the sea was flatter than forcast and we shot across from Lymington to the River Medina doing around 35 knots.

Very Slowly up the river and Found the Folly Inn. Can see why its recommended as we had an excellent lunch there.

Fully fed and watered we headed back out and had a blast down towards the needles before heading back to Lymington and pulling the boat out around 1600hrs.


No mishaps while boating but driving along, spotted the spare wheel for the trailer whobbling on its mounting just in time to stop the nuts coming off and the wheel going its own way. A case of some lock thread and a strap for that me thinks.


Then the 3 hr drive home :-(

Sounds like a great day!!

Martin, how is the performance of the 5.85 with the 140 Suzuki? Have you had it flat out yet? Also, what is your average fuel consumption. I would appreciate a trip out with you some time if that is ok.

Thanks

Excellent, nice one Martin. First of many, by the sounds of things.
