Thinking of taking Time Bandit out for her first proper workout.

Anyone fancy a trip out tomorrow?

Weather is not looking to bad

Would have loved too, but hosting my Daughters Birthday Party and sleepover

If your around Sat or Sunday, I'd love to come out and play.

Its looking definate now, will be launching at Hythe early afternoon hope to see some Ribnetters out there. Probably hang around for Tims fireworks as well

Expecting some rain but hoping for sun too, have given up on forecasters as they seem to be on another planet.

Well that was one of the most pleasant afternoons ribbing I've had all year...

Now just to sort that engine problem...

Chris, PM me a mail address and I'll mail some pics across.

They are not perfect, but there are about 8 you might like... not really printing quality though!

Neil,

Thanks, have pm'd my email.

Great day, suprising weather (it looked like rain continuously by somehow remained warm, dry and even some sun)

Great display by the red arrows, sad not to see the Vulcan and had to get back to Hythe before low tide so missed the fireworks.

Boat went really well and completely fills me with confidence.
