1st decent trip out in new boat.

Woohooo,

Finally, off work, tide in, sun out and friends off work too. What shall we do, well urm, take the boats out of course.

Decided to go out to the Kentish Flats Wind Farm and then across the shipping lanes to have my first peek ever at the sea forts. What an incredible sight, well worth the trip out.

Total trip was 40 miles, which obviously included pottering around the coast too.

Also managed to spot a few seals bobbing around and of course gave way to two rather large container ships that passed through.

Heres a couple of pics for you. God i love ribs.

Sorry for the poor quality images but managed to leave the camera in the car, so taken on my 1940's mobile.

Also got a video of us coming back in with a mate at the controls.

Excuse the stupid "oh yea" shouting. All being well going out Saturday and Sunday too. Lucky me.

Superb! Hearty congratulations.

That used to be my stomping ground, those forts are super-cool eh.

I hope you have a long and worry free summer.

Looks like you enjoyed yourselves

Nice to see the turbines operating at maximum efficiency

Nice area @ Herne Bay / Margate, we usually make the trip across from Clacton a few times each year, Should be coming to Margate 2 July.

It was fantastic fun, such a big difference from my old boat. The turbines were moving so fast you cant actually make it out
