First trip of the year! M

Got the SIB out for the first outing of 2014 last night at Shrewsbury (for the first time).

The Tohatsu 18 started on half a pull and ran smooth for a couple of hours.

A little bit of floor bulging when first getting onto the plane, possibly needed a little bit more air pressure once it had touched the cold water.

So all was well and the girlfriend enjoyed it too apart from being attacked by mayflies. Can't wait to get out again!

Looks like a beautiful place to go for a tour. Maybe a stop for food, check out the villages, and enjoy a boat ride that few people get to take

Unfortunately we don't have anything that cool to visit around me.

Absolutely Peter, some great pubs with nice beer gardens along the way.

Would be a great place for you to take a holiday!

From the slipway next to Theatre Severn. Very easy to launch there and put the car in the carpark next to it
