I'm interested in seeing your piccies, Steve, so don't let Rockey put you off posting them - he doesn't need to look at them if he doesn't want to!

Richard wants to know what make the steering is. (Whatever it is, there'll be at least 3 people who will tell you you should have got x, y or z instead .)

Yep, sure am.

Dover is not that bad, bit narrow though. Can't remember what states it's usable though. I prefer Ramsgate (which is awful, but once you've mastered it) or Margate at HW.

The sooner the better really, but i think it'll be a bit cold for a few months for that sort of distance, unless you want to persuade me otherwise???

Daniel,
I think we should make arrangements in the Cruising section. I will start a new thread.

not butting in, and don't really know what your on about but Dover - Calais is only 20miles.

Did it earlier this year. Dover slip is very narrow, I think it must be usable at most states of tide as I used it pretty low for an 8mtr. The only problem was the swell, if its in the wrong direction it's a baxxxard.

Yer i'm being a 'southern fairy' i know and i take it all back - lets go in December, it'll be fun.

In my defence I was talking more about for me from here (Margate) which would be a 100nm round trip which is quite a long way.

See new thread here http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=3349

Well I know some don't want to see so dont read or look any further.

But this is how the new console is going to look do you like the grey top or better all white? ( Louise)
