It really was amazing - Chavez set the price for the "Chavistas" (people of the Barrios) and that was why he got re-elected every time. Not sure if it is still like that since he died.

Not actually - the derivation of that comes from the Romani word Chavi which means child. Used to describe puerile behaviour / dress. Word was first seen in 19th century and highlighted again in 21 century media. See Wiki!

I was originally going out early to head into Lymington to meet up with the "small" guys.
However, my crew can't make it early, so will now join up with you off Brownsea.
I have 12 other seats if anyone fancies a blast!

Would love to join the Poole group and head up to the Solent, but having only just dropped the engine and drive back in the boat, tomorrow will be the first time it's actually given a proper test!

So I'll stay on the safe side and remain local until I've given everything a thorough test, and hopefully join in on a future trip. You might see me around Poole Harbour though in the morning, hopefully not begging for a tow back to the marina!
