Well its just a little start.

After scrabbling through a few boxes I managed to get a couple of Carling Marine Switches for 50p each. Its the start of a little electrical project. Either deck lighting or a warning horn.

I met up with Neil too, sorry I missed you Nick.

Was pretty much a wash out as far as I was concerned, did purchase some stainless screws and nylocs. Saw someone selling fibre glass supplies and was amazed he was selling MEK as a solvent (though that had been made illegal to sell and use). Not much else of interest for me, the heavens opened up and wind blew up into a squall, was funny as hell watching all the stall holders dashing from pillar to post packing all their stuff up

Had a walk back to the car along the creek and spoke to a few fishermen/ladies along the beach, all had nice looking Flounders in their buckets and I was amazed that you need to belong to a club and hold a licence to fish on Calshot spit, this costs £45/year I was told .

Andy,

Must have just missed you. Whilst it was rainig I went for a wander inside the main hanger. Had a look at the rock climbing bit and the dry ski slope.
Nice looking cafe inside as well with a lovely view over the Solent to Cowes. Shame you can't moor the boats there.
Apparently the sea is rising .5 mm each year at the spit. Wonder how long it will take to sink.
