In Bangor, me and Jurgen walked through the town and found a huge supermarket. I purchased loads of cheap white T-Shirts, underwear and socks. They are all sold in resealable plastic bags so ideal and they're cheap too

I would have paid 10 times the price for them

Jurgen bought a new camping mattress and we were good for the rest of the trip

That night we all had dinner with Fast Forward, Scrambled and Mad Tubes!!!

Have seen this "thing" already last year during Round Ireland but had no clue what it was .
What I remember was that I had to rev up the ETEC90 up to 2000rpm to keep the Seaerider on the spot . The tide was really strong !
Since this year I know what it is

Canīt remember where you slept that particular night . I think initially we wanted to sleep on the pontoon but there was not a square inch without seagull shit ..
In the morning in the twilight you came from one corner of the marina and went to town for breakfast .
There we met Alistair – who stayed at this B&B . He was very impressed about the full English breakfast and told me “if you finish this portion I will buy you a beer”
Answer : “wrong question – you can order the beer already” 
In the evening I got a nice beer from Alistair 

What Mike & Ross did with the Fast Forward was really amazing !
I remember they showed me the boat in Blackpool after they bought it . I liked it but by nature of inboard boats there was very little deck space available . This day I was happy to leave with Black Hawk on the tow bar the yard .
They really converted the RIB to an offshore camper ! I was really impressed !
Now – while I am still enjoying a lot the performance of Black Hawk – Mike & Ross are having the bigger grin in their faces when they refill their diesel tank a the end of the day ..

Day 6...

As Finn leaves early with Trevor G and heads for Stormforce for some tweaks we leave later and meet them there.

They're have an F1 pit stop arranged, engine raised, change of prop and an new plotter bracket

I was going to contact willk to meet him there but everything was a bit of a rush...

Mean while the Targa's were trying to catch up...
