No. I had the old velvet steering wheel cover out after the stuff off Gurnard. Natasha the little one) wanted me to do it again, mainly because she did not get wet. I wasn't so keen. I was sweating a bit from Outer Spit to Eastney. Very glad we did not have to cross Hayling Bay.
I don't blame you for taking it easy on the way back. I was a tad lumpy in places. How did your smallest take it?

I think you guys should think yourselves lucky that you did not have to encounter Selsy Bill yesterday afternoon. Must get myself a nice rigid case (just like Richard's)for my digi cos if I had had one yesterday I would have been posting some fantastic shots today, specially a shot after JK stuffed the rib, me with my inflated lifejacket , Phil wishing he was wearing a dry suit and John having a good laugh at it all . Not to mention a flooded rib.

My youngest falls asleep, the cause is either the soothing roar of the engine and all that fresh air or itís a hitchhikers guide Ďwhat you canít see canít hurtí reaction

I guess you went round the Owers and not thro' the Looe Channel. It can't have been nice out there. What were the seas like, size and lengthways?
Off Southsea we had 3-4ft about 20-25ft apart. I was very glad to have a higher bow than yours, even in that. The boat took it much better than the driver did.
I can't imagine JK laughing, he seemed like such a nice bloke.
