Andre, I apologise unreservedly. My reaction to the posts of certain induviduals is instinctive and in no way meant to drift this thread anymore than a debate on driving in snow should. For the record although I don't have a RIB now so clearly in some eyes are not qualified to comment, I think Nauti-boys Parker 900 looks like the dogs danglies and another quality Parker build. (As was the earlier incarnation of seahawk that you kindly took me out on a few years ago.)

Richard enjoy your RIB. Will you be using her through the winter?

Hi Alan

Thank you, yes planning on keeping it on the water throughout the winter, just wrapping up warm when I go out. Plus some of the winter days can be the best days out on the water. Personally I quite enjoy going out in the cold, face burning, stopping for lunch for a pint in a pub with a warm fire, then cruising back home.

Mind you the cold we get here is not a patch on what you get.

regards

Richard

Hehehehehe

1) To avoid the icebergs
2) So they can reach the Pimms dispenser
3) To get a better suntan
4) The plans were in euro


I'm not volunteering to help shift this one off Priory!!!!

Sorry to say there is no fridge on board, however there will be a BBQ, Cool Box for those lovely sunny days on Priory Bay. As for floating off Priory Bay at least you will have company long after everyone else has floated off, then we can blame each other, as to why we did not move our boats sooner, sitting on the beach each of us thinking well he has not moved his Rib yet so I should be ok . As for having a drive Pete, anytime you are most welcome.

This weekend 11th/12th

Well thankfully the snow has cleared sufficiently enough so my RIB is now en-route somewhere across Poland heading for Calais So the plan is Myself, Andre, The Jackeens are heading to Calais on Saturday, get the Rib prepared and in the water, then Sunday bring her back, weather looks good so far.

Our plan after leaving Calais to stop for lunch at Brighton Marina and top up with fuel, then head for Littlehampton to drop Andre off, then carry on back to the Solent, so I guess we will arrive somewhere mid afternoon all being well.

We will be monitoring channel 77 so if you are out then feel free to Radio us.
