Well done I need to do my vhf and generally not a fan of online training as I don't find it works well for me. Congrats on the the level 2 if your an RYA member you can send of for an ICC (free for members) useful if you want the boat away on holiday and also if you need to prove your level 2 status anywhere.

Hope you enjoy your trip out on the second and dress for the occasion !

Hi HDAV, thank you - I will probably sign up for the ICC ticket in the New Year. I found 4 jumpers just about worked. Some providers do a day VHF course which might work for you.


FENLANDER - It's thanks to you that I have the Bombard Aerotec 380 and not a RIB that I couldn't get through the front door.

I haven't caught up on all of this thread... Have you had her in the water yet or are you just staring at your new toy like me waiting for the stars to align and launch her?

Hi. Waiting for stars to align. Parties to end. Friends to be free. Exams just passed. Lifejackets arrived. I will inflate it in my garden tomorrow. Itching.

Genuinely interested... you didn't say much about your Aertotec (not that I remember)... new/used/colour - bling red or refined grey/any repairs to do if used... all that stuff.

Old type. First voyage a success, bit hairy waves. Hayling Island Sparkes Marina to Itchenor and Emsworth.

Navigation with phone and Navionics different as water got on screen.

Got lost a bit. Blew up battery with anchor chain but everything else good including motor.

For those sceptical, I will post a picture showing me, Bombard Aerotec 380, 25Hp Mercury, tank, anchor, 5 lifejackets and one passenger in the boot and car. Sadly couldn't get second passenger in. Pethaps I still need the roofrack. Thames tomorrow.

Thanks for all youelr support!

Top pics Firstrib... well done on getting out and it looks a great outfit.

In the way of an unreliable "no-show" my Aerotec, outboard, fuel and all the kit has been in the car for two days now unused.

Blooming teens who couldn't get out of bed messed up one day and weather the other.... but it's still all there ready to go.
