Nope I'm at work and the boats in the yard. Hopefully it will be ready for a week on Friday? I'm going to run it back from Whitby to Staithes so will see if its ok then.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that all goes well for you when you get her in the water. Might even see if I can make it across on the day. Might even be at Whitby next Saturday! Just cant wait to try the drysuit on for real. Somehow, being dressed in a drysuit sat in the boat on the drive with the wife spraying me with the hosepipe is ok but the neighbours are starting to talk.... Wonder why.... It's perfectly normal behaviour aint it?

I've taken to playing the theme to Captain Pugwash on bagpipes, oh the sound of splashing water and a squealing cat. Just plumbed up a water supply so I can run the outboard at the same time. Well, the neighbours like to run their petrol mowers on a Sunday so I'll run my bloomin outboard! Great! Very annoying, but great lol!

That photo reminds me of when my Dad had one of those massive pools, me and my mate bobbed round it all afternoon with 24 cans in it. I had my diving stab jacket on and a flag stuck up, joys of been young!

Would it not be simpler and more prudent to do a level 2 and learn to put your boat on the trailer properly rather than buying a drysuit for the purpose of manhandling it on??
bollox -someone needs to get out more!
