Thank you all.
Rogue Wave - thanks indeed for your offer. Where are you? Motorways, traffic and trailer permitting we should be launching near Mercury on the Hamble tomorrow at about 0800.
Alan P thanks for your offer too, but why do I have the feeling that I'm being set up!
The forecast for the rest of the week in the sunny south looks miserable so with my delicate disposition I don't think we'll be going as far as planned before heading for Cowes on Friday. Rough seas I can handle but rain is just too much.
