Daniel,

I am glad you realised that I meant N.I. instead of Wales. Good job you didn't think it was Bangor, Maine though!!

Everybody,

Thank you all for your kind and encouraging comments.
I guess I must be doing something right as there are no abusive or sarcastic comments (yet!).
I'll keep up the good work by adding more and more.

Hi Brian,

I opened the account of the 2002 Scillies trip, thinking that I went with you in an earlier year but there was the account of our trip.

It's interesting that you remember the passages around the islands and the nature to be found there. The things that I remember from that trip are : -

1/ Thinking that I might be able to get off with the owner's daughter at the B&B where I stayed.
2/ The water that accumulated between the hull and the deck of Ronnie as she lay overnight and how badly it affected the handling on the Sunday going home.
3/ The long pasage from the Lizard up to Plymouth in a building following sea, that needed a deft hand on the throttle.
4/ The steering let go a couple of hundred yards from QAB and how disastrous that would have been a couple of hours earlier.
5/ A bloody long tow home.

As a matter of interest are you looking for other material or is this site purely for your own body of work ?

ATB

Brian
