Good work.

Is it always like that on a falling tide at the top?

and everyone who turned up on what must have been a "challenging" days ribbing for us all, I had a great day out, I think my crew Andrew and Jeff did well putting up with my driving skills, or lack of them
hopefully I'll sort some good video clips from the gopro when I get home, first time we've used it so maybe not upto TonyT's efforts yet
it was great to have a chat with everyone at Fu's, you've all kept me going the last twelve months, can't wait for next years cruise, I'm sure HP will be sorting a date soon
Agreed. Great day. Thanks to HP and sorry we had to dash. Nick who was with me had to get back to London so we were straight off .

Leg wouldn't lift as I was fastened to the botom and I didn't want to break anyhthing by trying again. Figured it was calm in the marina an plenty of people around. So I stood on the cavity plate , reached and cut... Good job it worked, otherwise I'd have looked a right prat!!

Great weekend chaps thanks to Chris and the boys for launching etc and HP for starting it off glad I got round although my steering was playing up leaking and at one point I could only turn left and seem as we were going clockwise wasn't much good
Stripped it down this aft and it looks ok so it's a mystery
Jonny should have some gopro footage when he gets it sorted got a good one off us stuffing the nose in
Awesome trip anyway.
