I'm hoping so Tim. I did originally put my name down, but it seems to have been knocked off...

I have to try ang get out this weekend though, as the engine warning light kept coming on coming up to Drivers from Calshot last Sunday. I think it was simply a loose battery connection, but don't want to risk an Alderney trip unsure.

I also have to work out if I can get to Needles for 10:30 Friday, as I don't fly into Heathrow until 7pm Thursday, have to get home, down to Swanwick, pick up the boat, get launched etc etc

last few for now:-
26 - 27 cabin glassed on with some hardware fitted
28 - 29 fibreglass round tubes now stuck to tubes with hypalon
30 - even the "ears" have been filled and gelcoated so no longer a gap between tubes and cabin moulding

As she was ready for the Priory Bay Picnic trip. Lots still to do, but getting there...
