Saturday 1st May

Not exactly a cruise as such, but we are launching our new business/service on Saturday.

Our first cruise will be at 1000 from Poole Quay and then every 90mins throughout the day. I was just thinking that if there were a few Ribs in the area, it might look rather impressive running through the harbour and might make some rather good photo opportunities.

Anyway I just wanted to express my thanks for all the help, advice and support it getting this up and running. I can certainly recommend starting a business if you want to loose weight, have sleepless nights and deal with agencies who generally seem to be as unhelpful as they can get away with.

The exceptions were Parker, Saunders Morgan Harris, Poole Quay Boat Haven and Yellow Penguin and Poole Harbour Commisioners.

Steve

PS and yes John I will upgrade to Trade as promised!

Best of luck in the new venture

HI Steve

Well done in getting this far! The really challanging bits are always hidden around the next corner.
You seem to have gone about the whole thing very professionally.

Your runs - do they stay within the harbour (and at the speed limit) or is there time for you to get to the entrance and out into the sea?
regards
Paul

Please note this is now cancelled (just dont ask)

Paul, thanks I thought so too, but there is always something nasty hiding round the corner and mine has just popped out.

If anyone needs a large Cat3 Rib for charter TFN let me know or make me an offer, you can have the whole lot .....

Like Knot, I was about to say congrats (and hoped to join you for your photo shoot)

Is there anything us locals can do to help?

Best

Good God, what a day of lows & highs. Never, ever, do I wish to repeat the last 6 hours.

We are back on .... You could'nt make this up.

Now having phoned round my crews and informed them that their jobs had gone, I am now frantically trying to get their services back. Fortunately most were still available BUT

I am without a Skipper for Sunday 2nd May, is there anyone with an Advanced commercial who could help? Please .....

Steve
