Yup, quite a little flotilla we had there for a while! Didn't relaise Duncan is my mate Miles brother - Doh! And i'd met him before some time back.
Superb day out. I'd never had Dolly out in flat calm before, the last home was magic, can't believe how quick we did Herne Bay/Ramsgate. In all, we did around 60 miles.
The motors starting to loosen up a bit - managed a bit over 38 knots on the way back, at 5200rpm, so theres a bit more to come yet....
After we left you at HB, we stopped at Margate Hook for a spot of Seal watching, there were 15-20 of them sunbathing when we came past. The tide was unbelievably low by the time we got home, never seen the harbour so empty.
Nelson got an ILB shout just as we got back and ended up doing a solo rescue in his own boat - he just shouted' SMOKE ME A KIPPER, I'LL BE BACK FOR BREAKFAST' and hooned off towards Deal. What a Guy......!
As we got back, a feller had just decided to end it all in Ramsgate harbour by jumping off the wall into..... mud! Told you it was low, all he did was mess his hair up. So there was lots going on when we got there!
