Others could tag along as we head up the coast.
All things being equal - I would definitely go by sea. but i have elected not to organise this particular trip by sea for the following reasons.
1. I will have my two your kids on board - so if the sea kicks back - it will mean i have to go real slow as my youngest cannot cope.
2. Most of my holiday is set aside for other trips this year so can only afford a couple of days off for this exhibition.
3. My Wife is not coming on this trip - and even if she was - towing a trailer - you must be kidding.
The only way it can work for me this time - is to tow the boat - Ill happily meet you there if you want to come by water though.
