moved the steering wheel up as far as it would go.

What a change, moved the steering wheel up as far as I could, what a change out in 2-3ft waves and didn't get near the bounce and was able to run at 1/2 throttle and still stay on plane. Got a little more spray but not bad.

Did you take the boat and if so, where did you launch?

Fair enough.

I wondered if there were any decent slipways down there-Appledore is OK if the bar isn't so rough as to be impassable and I don't really get on with Watermouth Cove.

I did try Ilfracombe.It was so full on arriving there that I was unlikely to be able to park the trailer so carried on to Watermouth Cove that day.

Hi Nobby

Hope you had a good trip. It's good to be away, good to be back, after a few days and at work you wonder why you ever came back. I had two weeks off also, got called into work 4 times, and we moved to another houses. I now need a vacation. It really put a damper on boating and fishing. Woulld you know how wide the metzeler is? Mine is up to the marina and I don't think I'll get there for couple of days. I suppose you'll be getting the boat in the water soon. Take care be save.
