That's the great thing about ribbing in company, you know there is someone there to help with a tow (or to flip you back up the right way up). Glad you all had a great day.

Anyone else out next Saturday, I'm taking Tigga the sr4 out for a blast over to the IOW.

Well I proved that you can get a 2.6m sib with a 2.5hp engine from Baiter to Wareham but I've yet to prove that you can get it more than a third of the way back! Thanks to Pete for the tow. Will try again .... but might wait for a warmer occasion.

It seems to have become a habit ...not smoking..just generally trying to soak each other I mean. AJ started it back at the the start of the year....soaking whisper and I...it's on film on my YouTube some where.....

Cigs, phones, gloves...nothing is safe......

That clip would be awesome slowed down.....:-)

The Folly would work for lunch, or maybe The Kings Head in Yarmouth. Newtown creek might be worth a visit if it's a nice day.

AJ Started it, what are your 10

I think that was reckless behaviour with me in such a small SIB your wake could have flipped me, my cigarette could have slipped out my mouth landed on the fuel tank vent and I would have been up in a ball of flames catapulted into a rip tide miles from land stuck in sinking mud like that poor horse in Never ending story (Still haven't got over that).

I'm putting in a complaint does anyone have a contact at the MAIB
