48 Litres for the trip - although I think we owe James a few litres

Engine now fixed - 14 relay and 2 hours to fix it.
Support your local engineers with ALL of your servicing, pay your bills without question, and they will dig out when you need them. Well done Fairweather!

That's what it's all about! Really good to see those now familiar Pwllheli harbour stickers on some of the RIBs from the Midlands and North too

I logged 72 nm for the day and filled up with 50.5 litres. Interestingly, I did the same trip last year when my engine only had about 30 hours on it and used 81 litres. I probably was not pushing quite so hard this time, it being a little more lumpy, but I must admit to being surprised by how economical the old Opti is now.

Glad we put some extra fuel on 88 litres for the trip,

Thanks

Thanks to Chris and Debs for an extremely warm welcome to the south. In case you are wondering I was the passenger on Top Banana. Fantastic turn out, and Fantastic day.
My Jetski is up for sale, but was wondering if it hasn't gone in time for the Thames trip in September. Would a Jetski be welcome, and come to that are Jetski's allowed on the Thames!

PS: By the way, nice Kebabs.
