Well Keran and me had our first cruise on our rib KeyMar today. Nothing to exciting it was only on the River Trent. We dropped her in at Farndon Marina and within ten minutes we had performed our first rescue!!!! A couple of fishermen in a dinghy with a broken outboard were frantically paddeling upstream againts a good couple of feet of running flood water
With the dinghy towed safely back to Farndon we went in search of a stretch of un-inhabited river. Once found she quickly came up onto the plane with a max. recorded speed of 33kts on the gps. (if british waterways are reading this then my gps is way out of caliberation!!!!).
Apart from the rain showers we had a great time, even our nine month old german sheppard loved it. After a stop for lunch it was back to the marina for some more practise getting the boat on and off the trailer. We have taken some photos and when i figure out how to re-size them I will post them.
A great day and totally justified buying our boat.
