I'll hopefully make it up for a day or two, and take whatever weather is about - big family birthday means I'm probably going to miss ERR, so any out of port in a storm, eh?

Mine's on a permanent sea trial!

Ok, joking aside I now have a two level plan:

1) day trip involving a sparrow waking start, going wherever the Scotrib crew go, and returning home at silly o'clock.

2) Somehow getting an overnight pass (crew #2 will be about 4 months by this point) and do 2 days with a vaguely leisurely return on the Sunday.


Watch this space. I do intend to dispose of some TCW3 whatever happens!



As a serious aside, what's the Scotrib cruising speed? I have managed 30 knots, on a cold start, and hope that the removal of the mercury switch from the deadman circuit will have cured the top end lethargy, but will a 21 Knot average (best I can guarantee at the mo) be a PITA? I am in a prop swapping mix right now.....
