Well done Geoff!

Well, after nearly 3 weeks of endless sunshine and light winds it had to happen, Captain Grey Cloud (aka Geoff Hutcheon) turned up here at the slip this morning, and brought the gloomy clouds with him.
He did also bring his new Cobra and 150etec for its maiden voyage, so not all bad!
Pics below, joking aside, well done mate, she looks great, going to give that old white revenger a work out keeping up with you....

Ps, he's been out nearly an hour now and not broken down, not bad for an Etec eh?

well, all I can add to the above is that it's great to see Jeff n Sandy with a new rib, the Cobra looked the bees knees when they arrived in caernarfon last night, I'm as sick as a bloody parrot we ain't out there with them today, but they had best make room for me n Jayne this w'end, or else I will be revealing all about the magnetic door plates Jeff wanted to order for me old 110

me n Jayne is made up for you both, just go n enjoy the Cobra as much as we have enjoyed the Revenger
