So thats why you were so long getting to the pub! David thanks for making the effort to arrange the cruise, we had a very pleasant cruise around from Southampton, even if it was a little cool (and snowing at times). Once again very good company and good food.

Sorry to those who would have liked a seat, I was reluctant to commit to a promise as the boat had not been used for a few months and did not know if it would all be ok. As it turned out, on start up I got a warning about a defective coil on the starboard engine. The system said to check at next service. Otherwise all ok. After the run down and an hour or two on the pontoon at Yarmouth, the fault had gone!

Good to see you all again!
Thanks Steve for giving the kids a ride back - to them someone else's rib always seems more interesting than ours!
Only problem was that by the time we got back they were all warm and toasty in the Saxon Wharf Dry Stack lounge, so we had trouble coaxing them out to help unload Blue Ray!
Dave - it's a good job your camera didn't have a zoom lense or Pam would be charging you for the footage!
