Cheers Willk. The green hoodie sets it off nicely.

I was so gutted by the whole experience, I thought I'd do a spot of texting.

To really add the icing, we towed back to Mylor, put both boats on the pontoon to wait for enough tide to recover. JV (the hoodie) and his pal went for a blat in the SR4, we had a pint and a coffee. When it came to recovery time, the bloody SR4 would just about cough on one pot with the aid of fast idle.
We had to paddle both boats onto their trailers, with the aid of a couple of drysuited divers who were recovering their Viper.

Got the SR4 home, stuck it on the muffs, it coughed once and then ran as sweet as a nut.

Oh my god! I almost feel bad for taking the photo now... almost!

Hope you're OK mate

Massive thanks to Mollers and family for a great weekend and looking after us so well. Sorry we didn't come back and say bye but I needed to follow the recovery truck to find my way home!!

...... now if you'd have been wearing a life-jacket it would have been a different story!

Seriously though, Martin, sorry to hear of the accident and hope you're better soon.

Best David

I suppose it might of cushioned the impact with the slipway somewhat
Its a fair way down from the bow tubes to the concrete innit
