Ditchin yer mate...thats a bit harsh !

Couldnt you squash him into the forward locker - the extra ballast would probably improve handling in heavy weather ?

I'm launching at Southampton about 1030 hrs. After faffing around I hope to be at Calshot by at least 1200 hrs. Earlier hopefully.
Then its off to the Lightship in Pompey Docks for a coffee.
Then clockwise round the IOW. Possible stops for food etc are Ventnor or Yarmouth. See how the time goes.
Taking piccies of various spots along the way and visiting Freshwater bay because my mate went there as a kid and also looking at the Needles.
No time limits just going to see how it goes.
Hopefully it will be smooth for once.

Anybody welcome. Lookout for a Yellow RIB possibly flying a Large Union Jack, If I've got the bottle to fly it, given its not good etiquette to do that sort of thing.

Callsign Zerstorer or Biggles. Listening on Channel 77.

Regards Nick.

You can fly any flag you want as a " Battle Flag" as long as you fly the red duster also. This does not include entering a foreign port, when a "courtesy flag"should be flown. I think I am correct but will accept any corrections.
Regards to all.

I do fly any flag I want. Usually a RIBnet Burgee and a St. Georges Cross. I don't think that there be a problem Oh ahh with a Skull and Cross Bones.....I've never had any funny comments and skurvey that see's the flag always give a smile.

I do however think that there are a few serious boaters out there that take things a little bit too far with their veiws, but as a whole nobody I've encountered ever minded.
