I've got your rope and am baout to use it !
I know what you mean however, we went out this weekend (see Cruising - A Quick Jaunt) and had a blast. Yea it was a bit chilly but nothing that a hot flask of baileys coffee and a thick jumper didn't sort out.
In fact I'm quite looking forward to getting MeMe out on the water during those cold months leading upto Christmas. I've found you can get the odd really nice day when the sea flattens right off to glass and the clouds clear to reveal the sun, which, reflects off the water and is as toasty as summer ( well spring at least).
Ian - Jono, if you listening ! Why not plan an Abersoch Cruz between Xmas and New Year. We 3, Phil my pal in his Caribe etc, there's 5 boats already ?
Over to you Ian.
Buy it & Use it, then sell it and buy something bigger
