newbies maiden voyage

First of all a big thank you to all the guys who responded to my 1st post 'advice for a newbie'. The welcome, advice and encouragement was most appreciated.

We had great fun and can't wait to go again.

Secondly, as requested here is a couple of images of us on Ullswater.

Best wishes

Jake

one little point though
Next time make sure that bow rope is INSIDE the boat if it comes undone and fouls the prop or anything else you will know about it, secondly its nicer to pull a dryish rope rather than a soggy wet one

Glad you all enjoyed it

Great stuff!

I am a newbie too and would just say (from experience) NEVER be without your life jacket, whatever the weather!

The Yellow buoy between the girls on the second picture is a marker buoy with the name waterside on it. This is for the waterside house farm campsite where we stayed and also launched from.

The hat is from weird fish in St. Ives, Cornwall. You have to be young, cool and trendy to wear that

As for the rope that was one of those mistakes that we learned from, all part of the fun

and of course I'd never set off without life jackets.

Thanks for the comments guys

Jake

PS: If any one wants info on Waterside and Ullswater please let me know

If every one in the boat is smiling then you can get away with nearly anything - including the hat . Good stuff !
