I'll be out and about tomorrow in the solent.

Have to take my new (to me) Shakespeare out for a run, so leaving drivers at about 11:30ish I guess and off to the Folly for lunch.

Might see you out.

Neil,

Just seen the thread. Nice looking boat.
I should imagine by 1200 hrs we will be a few miles away. But give us a shout on Channel 77. I will be in the company of AndyB007 on Darwin. Hopefully we can meet up.
He's bringing some high tech camera gear to make another movie.

Regards Nick.

I know, hoping she serves me as well as the 5.4 has the last year, also hoping not too thirsty!

It will be the first run out since getting my hands on her for the trial run, so name to think of, so if you try calling me tomorrow will be using Neil Harvey I think for ease. Will listen out on 77, although only have a handheld at the moment!

Regards

Neil

Neil,

Yes I'm launching from Warsash. Arriving 0900 hrs and leaving at 0930 hrs. then following the orders of 'The Producer' as to where and what we do.

Nick.

Well we did get out today. Why on earth is it so cold at sea when its boiling on shore. Had a quick blast down to Pompey then out to Nab Tower. Still a little choppy and certainly more wind than was forecast. Although Whitecliff Bay was sheltered and just like the tropics. After having lunch at the Lightship decided to go round Hayling Island. Saw the Chichester Harbour patrol and got waved at this time instead of getting pulled over like I usually do. Then it was a straight run back up to Warsash. Still bl**dy cold though.
No major mishaps which was good. Tried to link up with Neil Harvey on his new boat but we always seemed to be at opposite ends of the Solent when we spoke to each other on the phone.
On a bad note did see two RIBs getting towed by Seastart.
And on a good note got blasted to hell by the two guns at Portsmouth harbour entrance as we left. Very smart the crews looked, and very loud were the bangs. And also saw an old MTB in immaculate condition which sounded absolutely brilliant. I think I would quite happily sell a kidney for a blast on that beast at full speed.
Apologies for no pics but it was just one of those days where you enjoy being on the water and let the world go by.

Nick, It was a good day. Just sorry I was feeling a bit under the weather to enjoy it to the full. Interstingly my flu-like symptoms seemed to diminish when on the water - why is that? Anyway, glad I made the effort but suffering for it now!

Andy

ps - those guns were f<very>g loud!
