Thanks everyone for coming to play! Didn't take many pictures, but here are a few. Nothing of Wibs coming under the rail bridge as we all thought he wouldn't even try!

Big thanks to Dry Run for local knowledge and assistance. We enjoyed watching god-knows-how-much-worth of Scorpion on a fork lift negotiating a packed car park. A very slick operation it was too

Yes, fantastic day :-). Many thanks John.

These small boats have something to be said for them - Hamble, Portsmouth, round Portsmouth and back to Hamble and I could only get 18 litres in the tank..

Those Bombards look good.........

I see what has happened. You have mistakenly joined the Southhampton Fortean Society on their Annual Outing.

I'm just in the door from a RIBnet meet. They're MUCH stranger than that...
