Cheers for the offer Blackroady might take you up on that as there just my size
The cruise in Oct might be an option doggypaddle I do have an Avon not a sea rider though its a Sea Sport but thats close enough? not really sure what the differences are


Talking of lack of shelter.

Let me know about the waders ...... I am planning on going up the Solent to see the Searider crew from Christchurch - probably the last outing for my bigger boat of the year as that one gets lifted out over the winter ( just to avoid the worst of the weather on the mooring) - but after that I'll be in my Avon .

I dont think they will mind its not a searider - if its a RIB will probably get you in

Hi Paul. Let me add my welcome to the others - and let you know that we operate all year round up here (Scotland), so I'm sure you'll be fine on that sunny south coast!!

The seas are sometimes a bit lumpier, and always colder, but a good day in the winter is often a fantastic experience

Well I tend to go out more in the Spring and Autumn/Winter upto and including Christmas than I do in the Summer. Then I tend to lay up the RIB in the colder months of Jan and Feb.

Some of my best days out have been in freezing conditions, to pit ones self against the elements without going out in extreme windy conditions.

I think we can make an exception, for a one off payment of a pint of beer
