What a bummer. Worst weekend in ages and it had to be this one.
Guess we did the right thing in the interest of safety. Good to meet you Hawkerj and Rache, sorry we missed the late arrivals. Got dragged up to Chester to see what we were missing
You could have sailed the Mersey Ferry over the weir the water was that high.
We'll get the weather right next time.

Agreed it was a shame about Saturday but safety must always come first. We stayed on in West Kirby and met Graham, Gary and Barry (late arrivals).
After another hour and a half we had to move off the slipway as just like you guys said the tide would reach the road. The boys went off to the pub and we headed back around to the promenade and parked up. You said the tide comes in quick and boy were you right! The prom got absolutely pounded by the seas. We had waves crashing on to the roof of our car and filling up the rib on the back (good job the elephant hose was down). The Police closed the prom and fortunately ignored the sad ribsters sat in their car, Well if we couldn't got out in it we would just have to look at it!! We nearly got as wet as we normally do as Roger insisted on sitting with the window down and we took two huge waves through it.

By two o clock there was so much water on the prom we thought it was time to either get in the boat or just get the hell out of there.

All in all we had a lovely day and it was great to meet you all at long last.

Regards to you all.

pitch prop??

WHAT PITCH PROP DO I NEED?

EFFECT OF PROP PITCH ON RPM
A pitch change can increase or decrease the RPM's and bring RPM's into the recommended range
A 2" INCREASE in pitch (For example from a 21pitch to a 23pitch) Typically results in a
DECREASE of approximately 300-400 RPM.

FIRST, DETERMINE MANUFACTURES RECOMMENDED RPM
Find the manufacture's recommended RPM range in the owner's manual or ask your dealer

TEST FOR MAXIMUM RPM
Using the existing propeller or a new propeller, make test runs to determine the maximum RPM
and boat speed. Vary the trim angle for optimum performance.

RPM HIGHER THAN RECOMMENDED
If the actual WOT RPM's are ABOVE the recommended RPM range, install the next LARGER
pitch propeller to DECREASE your WOT RPM. Re-test the WOT RPM.

RPM LOWER THAN RECOMMENDED
If the actual WOT RPM range is BELOW the recommended range, install the next SMALLER pitch
propeller to INCREASE your WOT RPM. Re-test the WOT RPM.

When you combine all these factors, you have the information you need to select the correct
propeller for maximum performance, safety, and fuel efficiency.

OK PETER anything to add?
