I finish work at 06:00hrs couple that with the early start and poor tides for me, I'll have a play for a while but won't stick around too long. Will look at recovering at around 13:00hrs.

Sister might be comming along if I can get seats and stainless in time. An early coffee or beer at Cowes perhaps?

Still touch and go for me, waiting for things to start gelling and comming together. Seat Backs off to the electro polishers tomorrow and upholstery been delivered to the ....Well upholsterers. Boat's still at Power tech's.

Might be prop testing on Friday as Power Tech had a nice 19" Viper sat on the side, I'll see if I can borrow it.

Alarm is sorted. Didn't see the point of repairing the batteries as it still works without them. Putting the plastic wheel liner back in was difficult. And I bought new brakes to put on at the front. But binned that idea once I'd got the wheels off and seen how much was left on the old ones. Seemed like a dirty and hard job. I'll give the brakes to the mechanic next time it goes for a service.

By the way I PM'd you.

High tide seems good for places like Wooton Creek, Littlehampton and those other hard to get to places.
