We'll be heading down to Weymouth on 27th and back on 28th starting in Southampton, via Yarmouth (BIBOA end of Season Weymouth Cruise).

If the weather's not to cr*p Rick's hoping to do it in the Searider. Might even have both suspension seats fitted by then if I pull my finger out!

Maybe we can meet up as we go past one way or the other, or meet in Yarmouth for lunch?

All fully rigged this morning . Proper bolts holding the throttle on instead of self tapping screws, likewise everything is now SS. ( not cheap to replace all the bolts ! )

Heart stopping monent when the engine died , check electrics, plugs, carb bowls ..bottom bowl had no petrol ...I go into mild panic, then realise the petrol pipe was being pinched up the hole it runs through in the console.

New hole needed.!!!...but then both cordless drill are flat ...so how do I drill a hole and with which drill ?

If seat comes back this week and weather holds I'm 100% aiming for water next weekend . Maybe Poole or Christchurch - Christchurch simpler to get to Yarmouth but I fear the channel marks will have vanished. If I dont get seat back it will be Poole as I can make do with a bit of play for a quick blast out to swanage and back

Great Alex. Keep an eye on weather or are you down anyway? Will text/ call in the week.

He doesn't have a spare jockey wheel and mudguards tucked away too ?

Just been and picked up the fairy...got to be worth a go..especially on the faded bow section that's more pink than red.

No idea ! They are only just getting to be of significance...I'll have a measure when I'm home.

Jockey wheel would be a result! :-)
