Don't worry Jon, there will be plenty of oppotunities later. Well I hope so, as I couldn't make it either.

she is going really well (74mph) but still slightly under proped.

i have been offered 9,000 for the rib without outboard so thinking it might go.

i can have a new one built over the next few months

just trying to think of a new colour

Well done to Tim M for picking a weather window with such accuracy so far in advance.

As mentioned to some we wanted to get back in plenty of time to recover the boat, wash it down, and tuck it up at the yard before getting the smaller Nashers home in time to prepare for school in the morning. So we didn't make it to the Needles, but went straight back to Pompey on our own after lunch.

The Solent on the way back was so calm, Its not often you see it like that.
We passed so many sailing boats heading in the same direction motoring along without a breath of wind to fill their sails.

Its days like Sunday that make it all worth while, the whole family enjoyed the trip.

Thanks to everyone for your company, I'm just sorry we buggered off a little early and forgot the camera.

Nasher.
