Full marks to Mike & South Coast Outbaords - as usual a quick nip in to get some paint and I'm there for an hour talking about Evinrude and the boat shows etc ( Love the fact I walk in say I have a 1990 engine and are after some paint - he turns round and instantly picks up the right one off the shelf and its only 11 ! ) - Totally the best place for evinrude 'stuff' and spares - most of which he carries

As usual huge smile on my face to have a go onan SR again in this set up after such a long time. If any RIBnobbers want a go - just PM me and head on down. Maybe for a donation to the Macmillan build ? ( or is that illegal ? - probably ... ) .

Fingers crossed for weather next Sunday ( I'm doing 1st aid Sat - need to drop chq off to Avocet tomorrow and call in to Longjohn))

Watch the weather forecast - next sunday calm clear and off I go !
Peter, that's Christchurch isn't it ?

When the high winds eventually subside, give me a shout and we can have a SR4's trip out in The Solent. Weekday (preferable) or weekend. It looks like the high winds are here to stay for a while though.

How about 23rd or 24th Nov subject to weather. High tide Portsmouth is 1430 ish on the Sat so we would be OK if we wanted to visit somewhere tidal, e.g. Ryde harbour.
