Change the axle - it will cost around £200, but if the old one is serviceable, you should get £100 for it from someone who doesn't want to dip it in the sea.

A few months ago, Avonride were slow getting orders through, so bear that in mind.

Hi Guys and Girls!

Looks like everyone had a terriffic weekend with the unfortunate exception of Chris.

I wish I could have joined you all, but perhaps next year (I said that last year too )

That wasn't very nice eating Garf or one of his cousins As I understand it they are green inside but what are they like to eat?

Hey Kathleen, you didn't tell me you had Legs

Chris, yeh get rid of those Sealed bearings. I'm very sorry that you had a S$%T day, happened to me many moons ago on a Bank Holiday, wasn't a nice experience I can tell you.

I've enjoyed looking at your photo's, I thought the best one (apart from some Legs ) was of Nos4r and Biggles at the top of Camber slip.

See some of you tonight.

Biggles

This photo of yours is interesting.

Note how Mrs Nasher is standing on the beach wrapped up in her coat watching me monkey up the ladder and A frame, having sent me swimming out to get the boat in just a pair of shorts.

Well what a fab weekend! Big thanks to Kath and Paul, especially for the strawberries and cream YUM YUM!!

It was our first time at the Camber and appart from some impatience on the part of other drivers whilst we were trying to back into the slip area and a little bit of congestion caused by the local fishermen (who were patient and not too short tempered!) I think the concensus was that we like it. Nice and easy, plenty of water to powerload and a nice short hop to the lightship!

Yes Garfish have green bones - not just a bit green, but actually JADE. Nasher was convinced that it had swallowed some fishing line! Most people on the beach tried a bit and I recon it tastes a cross between Mackerel and Sardeens.

I don't think I'll be camping on sand again though - what a pain that was... Niel Harvey did his best boyscout bit, building a nice big campfire to keep us all warm and we had a great view of the fireworks in Portsmouth.

Rib Virgins get home shagged!!

Thank you everybody for making us so welcome. Kathleen and Paul - you did a fab job of organising this and how you managed to order that weather - well thank you.

Nasher was a hero and stayed with us from Northney to Priory Bay and home again. It was a great day on the beach - the weather was fab.

Mum and Dad approve of our new friends - not sure if that is a good thing - "what a lovely bunch of people". They loved it and found the whole thing a "new experience".

It was a little bumpy on the way back but all was fine - I think it was a F5 (white horses on the waves) but once inside Chichester Harbour - it was fine.

Gotta say that we got home on Saturday and after cleaning down the boat and putting her to bed, we were all knackered but all agreed we enjoyed it.

Spent Sunday pottering around the boat sorting out a few bits and pieces.

Thank you everybody again and it was great to put faces to names!!!

Just another thanks to Kathlene & Paul.

Sorry we couldn't stay longer but as you know, this was the back end of a week's holiday to Cornwall for us, so insufficient mental preparation for it!
The weather put paid to almost all of our planned boating in Cornwall and having launched at Northney on Friday after the long tow from Fowey, no energy to plan a picnic….. (And we couldn’t really believe the weather would change so much!)

I’ll try harder next year….. and stay longer…. to meet more people.

But multi thanks.

Another great ribnet day out. Everyone seem surprised to hear that we had "made it across" in a 4m searider but it really wasn't that bad coming out of Portsmouth at about lunch time. We had to make a speedy exit in the end; seems Ju wasn't too keen on the loo (bush) that Kathleen suggested using

Those Molotov cocktails were rather interesting

Just heard Tilly telling her friend what a 'cool' weekend she had, and how we went in 'our' boat over to the Isle of Wight for a picnic. It was so 'cool' because we were going really fast over very big waves and then met up with a load of other people with ribs. 'It was the best weekend'.

How pleased am I?

She has also just asked if she can have a helmit like Nashers two! Great another helmet to buy.
