First time through the strait and we couldn't have had much better weather! Fantastic scenery. Anchored at puffin for lunch then back through the Strait and home for tea after a bit of playing in the waves off Ty Calch. Hope everyone else has had as good a weekend!
Glad you all had a good day, great to meet up, maybe a cruise to ty Coch next time, great place to pull for a pint

'twas nice running through the strait with you and Chris (that was you in the 4.8 Tornado?), this was my ribbing high point so far. Will be back as soon as poss.
nowt wrong with your trailer, just the ol fella has lost his touch, Tom didn't seem to have a problem

to be fair to HP, it's a very unusual Humber, in fact I think "The Cardinal" is a one off

Agreed when pottering near shore etc. but when 2 mile out cutting across sandbanks, when 1.5m flashes by at 40knots you think "uh oh" what's the depth at the next bank!!!!

Off to pilot cove tomorrow with Cookie all being well. Hope to see some of you tomorrow
it was good to meet up the other day and have a chat, surprising who you see on the Straits

I have, comedy, he just steps off and walks round the front. I don't think they even navigate. If they see water they ride on it.
