Solent - Wed 5th PM

Not exactly a cruise, but if anyone else is thinking of launching Wed afternoon then I'll be in the water at The ferry Inn, Hayling Island from about 14:00hrs.

Will probably head up to the harbour, then across to Cowes or along to Calshot.

Nos4r2 will be with me, and probably Aging Youth.

Nasher.

Nick

Sorry, have to ration my petrol usage severely at the moment, and pick my times carefully.

Perhaps in a couple of weeks.

Many Thanks

Well having had to do some remedial work on Hayling Island at short notice due to the severe downpours on tuesday night managed to meet Nasher.
Appears he wanted to try out his boat with its monster Suzuki 200 on the back as he has spent two years working on it and needed to blow out the cobwebs. What a lovely boat. The engine sounds sweet as a nut and the boat handles really well.
I met Ageing Youth and Nosr42 and was invited at short notice for a blast in the Solent.
We left Langstone about 1430 hrs and headed for Cowes. Visibility was about 1 mile max and dark clouds were gathering. Lo and behold just off Ryde the heavens opened and down came the hailstones. Arrived at Cowes then had a coffee and a chinwag, then it was back to Langstone through even more rain and hailstones and low visibilty just in time to get me back for work.
Thanks for the ride Nasher it was good to meet you and Ageing Youth for the first time. Nosr42 hope you dry out soon.
Much to mine and Nosr42's delight Nasher managed to get the boat out of the water a couple of times. Not easy on a big boat like that but very reminiscent of a Searider most of the time in the Solent.
I've just got to get a boat like that.
Photos to follow if I can get my phone to work with windows XP64.
Regards Biggles.

Yeah I was grinning like an ape for most of that wasn't I

The waterproofs simply gave up- they went in the bin before we left the slip.

Cheers Nasher- I really enjoyed that!

Cheers Guys I enjoyed it too.
Thanks for your company.

Just for the record its been a few months since it was used last, but I did quite a few miles last year with the Suzi 200.

The reason for me being nervous was the amount of time the engine had sat idle, and the amount of work I've done to it over the past few months.
It appears to have paid off though, as It was running well and much quieter than I remember.

I'm a bit of a worrier, my normal crew are my two sons now 7 and 9, I didn't want to put it in the water under the circumstances with just them on board before I'd had a chance to make sure it was OK with some more experianced crew.

At one point Kevin was at the helm in driving rain approaching Cowes and we had window of flat water.
She's a heavily built boat, we had probably about 120l of fuel still on board, and 4 large blokes(without being rude, Matt is a big bloke ) we topped out at just over 44kn without Kevin trimming the engine. When life settles down a bit I must get a helmet or remember to put my old MX goggles in the boat, as the driving rain at that speed was painful.

Oh yes, must also remember to swing my compass now I've moved everything around in the console!


Nasher.

Biggles.

Just noticed how dangerous you are with a phone camera.

In the first pic you managed to catch both kevin and my bald spots realy well, and in the second you caught me in an odd position, er, adjusting my dress
