Hi Roy,

I am coming West on Saturday to play with a mates SeaDoo jet boat. We hope to launch her at Mylor & see what the weather holds. You think you are going to get wet

Cheers

Ian

Ive seen a SeaDoo Jet boat tearing up carrick roads a few times last summer - is it the same one (The one I have seen is black white and yellow).

I was going to leave it till Sunday to go out - but I have now checked the weather again this morning and Saturday now looks to be the better day.

What time will you be launching - I am heading off up the coast towards St Austell and on to Looe to meet up with Randski (Bob and Sue) for lunch - but i don't know if coastal touring is a SeaDoo's speciality - they have a very flat bottom which whilst gives them amazing top speed - I don't know if I would want to get caught out in an kind of a chop in one.

They'll have a lovely (wet) time Roy. The Seadoo Sportster has a twin jet rig, it'll be fine in a bit of sea. Might pay to shove the oilies on though.

Hah, you aint kidding! That could qualify as understatement of the year We will play it by ear & hope to see you out there.

Cheers

Avoid the A30 from exeter down , use the a38 via plymouth . The roadworks at oakhampton area are causing bad delays , 45mins today .

Roy my mate with the 4x4 has just injured his back , so I guess a rib ride is the last thing he will be wanting for a few weeks . I hope somebody comes up trumps for you .

The bloody weather is looking perfect for a north coast cruise on Saturday - but I have a wedding to go to

I recommend everybody else go without me

Sunday might also be OK - but I know most of my crew wont be able to make it - so ill end up footing the entire fuel bill myself

The long range forecast for the remainder of the Easter holiday and the following week looks very miserable.
