Yipee, my first post on the forum. Been watching on for the past 8 months and finally managed to get a pc for home.

Hope our SOC lads are getting well rested and preparing for the off again. This time hopefully without any hiccups

Looking forward to the coming home party already.

JK - I should have known that ripping the drive out of the back of the boat would not have stopped these lads. Great to see that they are on the move again.
