Anyway after the late inbibing on Sunday night at the Yacht Hotel at Guernsey, somebody forgot to pay the bill!!!!! As I was the only one to fill in the booking in form I'm getting the grief. Any clues anybody???
Cheers
Well Jon, it wasn't me that's for sure. But it seems Mark has posted a photo above of some guilty looking culprit. What's he doing BEHIND the bar anyway?

OK Brian, I admit that the photo looks a bit incriminating, but it was'nt me guv, honest to god.
Sorry Jon, can't help with that one cos I know I paid my bill. Perhaps Mr. Lemmer can shed some light on the subject.
Anyway, Cyanide safely lifted ashore yesterday and the leg removed for inspection.

I assume you are staying in Alderney 'till it's fixed Andy?

New leg not available for about a fortnight.
Andy booking his return flight to UK now and will return to Alderney once the new leg has been shipped out there.

The unpaid bill looks like an administration error by the guest house as all parties have receipts.

Jon is going to call the proprietor and as all those who were in the bar late will know that extreme violence is on the cards if its one of us!

Cheers

Mark

You are correct that the tube problem was developing and needed some attention. But the Revenger was riding well clear of the water during its passage and, in my opinion, would have made it safely back to the Solent.

I suspect that exercise, food and drink, during the weekend, had more to do with not taking the boat home than anything else

Regards

Mark

Glad you guys had a good time, despite the incidents .

Saturday was certainly a good crossing day. Unfortunately, due to the weather vaugeries us 6 Metery people decided on a short crossing to Boulogne instead, scheduled for the Sun/Mon. Sunday, though not as good as Saturday was OK but F5/F6 was forcast for the Monday return in the Dover Straight. As this would have been wind against the spring tide at the time of our return crossing we decided not to go. (It turned out to be 31 mph N/Easterly so it would not have been fun).
Should have done a Sat/Sun to Alderney. Oh well! Next time.

Any progress on the repair and return trip?

Brian,

So if memory serves, is that a Bravo 3, a Bravo 1 and now a Bravo 2 that you will have had on Cyanide?

I hope the B2 lasts - I've got mine to 47 hours so far (fingers crossed) - although the amount of metal fragments that came out at the early (16 hour) oil change was quite surprising (to me at least).

Good luck with the B2X!!

Dylan...
