Hi Luke,

Depending on your back - spinal elasticity - my Tyne has 1.4 mtr wake at 17 knots with the trim tabs up............ Awesome for photography of a fully airborne ZapC from the stern however, as you know it would hurt on arrival back at sea level :-)

We are launching from Lymington at about 0930 getting fuel and blasting round to Christchurch bay/Boscombe bay from the end of the river at 1000. Would you like to convoy? We are a 6.5m Solent yellow tubes white hull. Planning to anchor 11 ish for lunch and to watch the airshow.
