Don't be sorry, I was only including boats that made the trip under their own steam. Did you not trailer a leg or two after your engine fell off?

I'm sure if you'd trailered them all, you'd have made it in four days all in

In the interests of balance Minor and Nord Star have very similar offerings which seem very little known in the UK. Might be slightly weaker resale since they are less well known?

My old man has a Nord Star 28 which I love and hope to one day inherit (not that I'd be able to afford to run it!)



Edit: No, he doesn't have all them fenders over the side while running!

Clarification on this - nothing to do with PBR - just something we did ourselves on Photobox with our own photos of the RI event and a few pinched from other people. Would have been great if one had been provided! I think I should be able to share the photobook (will check it out next time I'm online properly), in fact you might even be able to purchase a copy of it if anyone's interested (although you'll prob find Mad Tubes features a bit more heavily than you'd like!!!)

That's awesome - do you do commissions?. Whether I will ever forgive you for using a shot of TH with her fenders out is another matter!! (Not sure why they would have been?!?). A beasting of the crew tonight is probably overdue.

Haha - a pet hate of mine too! In your defence, I think it was on the quick blast round to Westport for refuelling ... and it was raining!
Lots of good memories in there which we shall enjoy for many years to come!
