Re Crtitical Navigational Error

It is amazing how easy it is to ignore the plotter and follow the boat in front into trouble!!! Will post piccies later. Just a few of the PWC for starters. A great time, fantastic expereince. Us newbies were going a bit cautiously off the Needles but would love a photo if anyone has one. I was at the helm for most of it so my pictures are a bit limited but will post some later.

Thanks to Missus and all, and to Simmons for acting as a guide and nanny round the island.

Bruce

PS no damage done, and good humour maintained all round!

The pictures tell the story better than I could!! It was an amazing adventure!
All of us were equally at fault! Just before we hit, Jo said - "what are those waves doing breaking over there".... Did I slow down or radio a warning?? Bruce

It got darker, but we floated off at at about 8.30pm in the dark, completely safe and sound. Jo, my wife, walked to Ryde and brought us back emergency smartie cookies!

Well, my first true Rib outing

We bought the boat in October last year after Mart took me out in Zante last August to quote "Key you'll love it"

Now Mart has been around boats most of his life, me I prefer to cool off in the sea after a hard day soaking up the sun, somewhere exotic.

So after so thought we bought KeyMar a 5.25m Osprey Viper, my first boat ride..... other than a 70.000 ton cruise ship and through the winter we've worked on a rather neglected boat , standing in the freezing cold pass this hold that, I'm sure you can imagine we've done some river work and I wasn't over impressed.

So we came along on Saturday, Mart woke me up at 03.50 and I growled at him, into the car and down to Portsmouth for 09.00 4 hours in the car.

Nice to meet some new people and I must say very friendly and made us both feel very welcome.

In the first 20 minutes of the journey I really wanted to tell Mart to turn around and never get on that boat again, but then things changed.

With confidence of being in a group and some nutter on a jet ski (thanks for being there John) I got more comfortable on the boat.

By the time we reached Yarmouth I was loving every minute,lunch at the pub was great and after a couple of glasses of wine I was ready for the journey back.. and oh what a ride

So I'm now firmly commited to KeyMar and had a great day out, sad we couldn't stay for Sunday but work, kids, dog etc mean't we had to head home


A very big thank you to the Jackeen's Andy High Tower and all those who made us feel so welcome, as Mart has already said we will be back

Nice photo’s Bruce and don’t worry about running out of water, its happened to all of us at one time or another I avoid this by setting the Shallow alarm on the depth sounder to 3 metres which usually gives me enough time to react
