If your crossing the Channel in.....

.....the next hour or two look out for Codders. He is on his way to Weymouth.

I am sure we will find out how the trip went in the not too distant future.

I guess he should be ashore by now!

Did anyone spot him on the webcam?

Bon voyage, Vince!

Shame - despite all the mickey-taking I expect there would have been some who would have met up with him as he came over.

Just waiting for the pics now.

Richard - nice headlines job!

How do you want your hat? Fried or boiled?

Looking forward to hearing the story Codders.

Glad to hear Jason eventually came up with the goods. Lets hope he didn't skimp on any layers of glass on your hull!
