Ha ha !
Ive not logged on till now as Ive been washing the solent out of my bilge.
Thanks for your help on the slipway guys - much appreciated.
For those that were not there to enjoy laughing at me being a complete numpty - I loaded up the boat fine and pulled it out of the water OK. But once clear and ready to leave I noticed it was not central on the bunks. So I figured I drop it back in the water, shove it central and then drive home. Seemed like a simple plan.
But like a plonker, I forgot to put the bungs back in and to add to the entertainment, the tide had gone out further. So while me and my crew were making a meal of drowning the trailer to load the boat, it was merrily filling with water
I put them back in, but that required me to be up to my armpits in the sea. Then we had to unhitch the trailer, take it deeper and rope it to the van to pull it out.
At least my pumps work !
So, not only did I have a great day out I also learnt a lot.
- dont take the bungs out, as its easy to forget.
- get one of those long bars with a hitch on so I can leave the van dry and the trailer wet.
- make sure your Ribnet mates are on hand to help, laugh and advise.
Big thanks to you guys for your help, advice and encoragement.
When Im at work tomorrow I will get those photos posted up. Next time we are out the drinks are on me.
