After a bit of splashing around we have to swim to Black Hawk and my drysuit zip is letting in a little water over my crotch area
We wave goodbye to Scrambled, then make our way very quietly up the the river Hamble on our own.
I give Mrs W a call who is at Biffers with the kids and they head down to the slipway with the trailer.
I've changed quite a bit, I'm more tanned than I've ever been before, the muscles across my shoulders are huge and I have stubble as I haven't bothered shaving for a few days. I'm also wearing a blue drysuit and not the yellow one I left in.
I can see my wife and kids as we approach the pontoon and my best mate/boat building mentor stood at the slip next to the trailer.
I climb out onto the pontoon and my kids run up shouting daddy daddy!!! They give me a massive hug and then my son says, "Daddy, can we catch a crab?"
Mrs W is standing just a few feet away, smiling and taking in the new me!!
I can't really explain the moment, it's just very surreal.
