I actually missed the stuffing, looked to me like you were just powering through the every single wave. By god did you look wet. Hows your friend ?
It's a lobster pot buoy.
I was having trouble keeping the bow up actually-but didn't dare let off the throttle as the sea was too confused to let the bow drop any more.
Probably something to do with over 300kg of people,gear and fuel aboard. It normally waltzes across the top of worse than that.
I knew we were going to get soaked so we were both wearing stuff that would keep us warm even if it was wringing wet.
My mate who came with us came over last night. He's still very sore but I think he might well be after a rib now
. What I didn't realise was while the water went over my head he got a mouthful with such a force it was coming out of his nose in jets. Pretty much all I remember was a wall of water going over me and the boat filling and emptying very quickly.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
