Thank you for your kind comments, CT01 (Charles?) and Richard,
I took my wife to see the boat on Sunday but we couldn't even take the covers off, as the rain was torrential!
Hoping for slightly better weather next weekend, although I really need to spend some time programming things and familarising myself with the electronic equipment, so we may not really get to use the boat properly for another week.
Still - Summer's coming ... or is it already here?
(Keep up Richard ... it's 8.5!)
