t'was a great day out, good company with Gareth , Wackywoody, and his crew, Neil, Pow2gran, and Helen & Lawrence, not forgetting me ol pal Jeff, and Sandy & bro Gary, them wot didn't make it missed a good cruise mr Smith did look to be running much better without HP at the wheel, but I could be biased, and woz good to see a big wave from HPs mum N dad from the balcony on the way back, time we had a proper drink at The Gazelle me thinks 🍻 Neil's n Helens 585 does look really nice, goes well too, excellent choice, be good to have a proper run out, hopefully next w'ends weather will be a touch kinder to us, maybe even get back to Ty Coch for a pint on the beach

you missed a gud'un Tony, some spectacular helicoptering, especially over the the new lifeboat station n the crowd on the shore, best yet oh, n the lifeboats were great too

not sure I wuz smilin, maybe a touch of gritted teeth, especially on the way back after puffin island, the stretch back to Beamauris was a touch lumpy the Searider coped well, not sure I did it justice

How you finding the baby SR4 Chris now you've been out a few times?

Is it knackering? Physically demanding? Difficult to keep up with the 5.5m plus boats? Or a breeze?

it's great fun Paul, but it'll never keep up with the bigger more powerful ribs, present setup it's good to around 32kts but runs out of puff then, but as it's chine walking at that point I don't see much point in going any bigger with the prop. it was fine in the rough stuff, but again it'll never keep up with the bigger ribs as it can't ride the swell n breaking waves like a bigger rib, dropping into the troughs with white water breaking over the bow tends to slow me down a touch, but maybe the rib is just better than me but, when it gets on the plane it's just soooooooooo much fun

Must be fun though playing in the waves. With instant throttle response I guess it's more involving too. Probably more smiles per miles/pound/wave. Just not ideal for long distance obviously.

it's great fun and I think with a 90l fuel tank onboard round the island should be on the cards, after Caernarfon to Moelfre n back must be getting on for 1/2 the distance anyway 😎
