Would it be easier if you came with me and then jumped onto Nashers boat when we meet up at Haslar?

The list now looks like this:


Haslar (1000)
Tim M (2), Nasher (& Jimbo) (4), Hugh Jardon (4), Pete 7 (4)

Calshot (1100)
BenC (2+), Pressman (4), Andy Moore (4), AndyB007 (4), CJL (?), RJH (4), Ian McConnel (?), Peter J (3), Lostyboy (4), Ian M (?)

Cowes (1130)

Slimtim (1)


Yarmouth (1300)
nos4r2 (2)


Others (whom I have no idea about)
Top Banana, Neal, The Edges, Phil Chitty, MikeCC (2)

That's 22 boats so far (sorry if I missed anyone out), and 42 people (excluding the "others and people with a ? next to their name).

Possibly, but I'll probably make the effort to meet up with Nasher and give him a hand launching etc (not that he really needs it - he seems to have a great system down to a fine art!)

Have you booked the weather Tim?

Late Arrival (Hopefully)

I might be up for this one. Just heard my boat is ready for collection after some minor modifications. I need now to get some time off work. Shall be working on that one on Thursday.

If I do get the green light I intend to launch from Warsash about 1000 hrs and will wait mid channel for everyone to arrive.

Crew will be me plus my son.

Hope I get the time off now.

Still hoping to be able to come and be at the Calshot meeting point. But it depends on whether or not I'm taking my nipper back to University that day. He's abroad until later this week. It's most likely I will be taking him on the Sunday.

This is very annoying because my diary is as empty as the Pompey trophy cabinet usually. The only two things I have had to do at the weekend for the entire year have fallen on the Poker Run and this!

Launching a Rib is like making love to a beautiful woman.

As you get older you will find the mature approach works better than youthful exuberance.

You invest in the fuel, like a candle lit dinner.
You make sure your equipment is looking its best and in full working order.
Which is especially important to those of us with slightly older equipment.
Pay particular attention to checking for leaks.

Then you need to make sure she is ready.
The angle of attack needs to be carefully considered, and if your rollers are not lubricated there will be painful squeaks and scratches to your smooth bottom.
Be gentle, and relax is the key, pushing and shoving with all your might will not work unless the ‘Button‘ on the winch has been released.
You will be rewarded with a smooth and satisfying entrance followed closely by the gentle slap slap of waves on the hull.

Of course there comes a point when even the mature Ribber revs up and really gets going.


Saying all that…



I normally launch by myself!!

Nasher.
