Apologies for being a tail end Charlie on this one, the Ethernet connection from my Computer to Modem is playing up and am struggling with an intermittent USB connection
Excellent day folks from Launch to recovery.......Just Superb!!
Sorry to hear and see all the problems everyone was having from the already mentioned 2 ropes around props issues, the sucked in primer bulb and kinked line, the stroppy harbour patrolman to the nail in the tyre and prop slip probs that Andy had. Not to mention a couple of hairy moments that people had on the way back home and Matts issue with the way they tied up to his boat.
I'm please to say, I had a trouble free day (apart from a bruise on my knee and that dam Garmin Map problem). The closest I came to stuffing Pete caught on my Video as I passed him. There is some great footage and as soon as my internet connection is a little more stable I'll add some music and upload to Utube.
Can someone tell me how many miles we traveled from Haslar to Yarmouth and back please. My GPS was showing 43 miles however I used 63 litres of fuel. I was motoring however, but as I have problems with the GPS I'm unsure if the milage is accurate or not.
Some great pictures everyone. The one I like the best is of Pepsea tied to the harbour wall at Yarmouth. After all the time and effort by Pete in mooring her, the fender is floating in the water
The slip at Haslar is great and usually very quiet. I always inspect the slip for wooden planks with nails, hyperdermic needles (yes I found one once) etc. So far I haven't had a problem, I just think that Pete was a little unfortunate on Saturday (we all have bad days from time to time). Oh and I clean my boots off before I go boating Nasher
So all in all a great weekend......Oh I nearly forgot. I picked up two gallons of XD50 at the Solent boat jumble today (thanks Andy) for £30 so less that half price. Should last me till summer next year.
