That was my plan as well especially since i have not been out on my rib since 4 January. I believe Sunday is a better day for the weather but I can only do Saturday

see you off Calshot at 10:30

Hi Andre,

I can only do Sat as well. It has to be better and warmer than the Nacho Run!

Looking to launch Mercury Hamble c.1000.

Will be good to see you again.

Will monitor Ch08. My mobile 07743 322835

Cheers,

Bob

May be an issue....4 miles from home O/S wheel bearing running hot. May not make it down so don't hang round waiting for me. Have a good day if I don't see you.

Saw you post as we were waiting for you. Sorry to hear of the bearing issue . At least not far from home. We had a good run to Yarmouth flat seas and no rain

See you the next time

Glad you had a good day.

Yes I was lucky - shows the value of always stopping after a few miles to check all is OK Wheel was beginning to smoke when I pulled over

MHB100 was an absolute star- brought over his tool kit and proceeded to strip down and adjust the misbehaving the hub - and explaining the mysteries of brake systems and adjustments whilst I handed him spanners and mugs of coffee- then he decided the other wheel needed "checking" (aka servicing) as well. Then went for test tow - no heat, all well, no lastingl damage

We then carried on into the afternoon sorting out the winch post and bow rollers which I had been intending to tackle "one day when I had time", and we found some lighting board faults and spent 2 "happy" hours sorting out trailer and lightng board electrics.

So a very productive day albeit not the one planned, and many thanks to MHB100 for lending his expertise and experience to someone else's boat

well at least you know that your next trip down will be trouble free and the weather should be much better. Spring is here and Summer only round the corner.

Just FoxZulu and Grey Mist today with Mike C who came for the ride


On the way back we popped into Newtown Creek just can't wait for the BBQ weather

Here is some data from my Simrad NSS9 of today's run to Yarmouth and back.

Great run over to Yarmouth for lunch with Andre and Mike on Saturday. We could actually keep up with Grey Mist this time because conditions were so good.
