I have earned some serious brownie points..........!!!!!
Took the wife and family out on saturday, and my good lady is really impressed with the rib. She said it is the perfect size for us, engine not too big like the last one, comfortable to be on, plenty of seating and good layout. Happy days.
Launched at about 11:00am, with a fair bit of sea mist, very common for Torbay, but by 15:00, it had cleared, and we had glorious sunshine, and glass like sea. Did not recover until about 20:00hrs. Such a cracking day. Covered just short of 40 miles, used about £30 of petrol (estimate) with 4 adults and 3 kids on board.
Just after we launched, with the mist, my boys spotted something in the distance, and wanted to investigate. as we got closer, it was 3 masted ship, and looked quite eeery in the mist, but when we got closer, managed to take this picture.
