From peaking at a few of the brochures her in doors has got and some of the crazy ideas she is banding around I would quite happily swap and pay for your SR work and a years worth of fuel if you would pick up the wedding/honeymoon costs

What do you think?!

I had 20 people at my wedding and could have easily paid for very a nice RC585 with 140 on the back for what it cost me to get married !!!!

The divorce cost me my Shearwater ..

I try not to think about it anymore....

I have spoken to the Folly and the Mooring people today and we are all set to go And this is the final plan....

Sat:

09:15 meet for Breakfast
09:40 Fishing Shop for bait
10:00 launch
11:00 Arrive at The Folly and pitch tents
12:30 lunch at The Folly
13:30 Go for a cruise somewhere and do some fishing and drop the lobster pot
17:00 Arrive back at the folly, shower and get changed.
18:30 Off to Cowes in one Rib or taxi for a beer and a curry and a few more beers in the Anchor Inn.

Sunday:

09:00 Full English at the Folly
10:00 pack up tents
11:00 go on a Cruise somewhere (Trevor G has a few ideas but we will have to pull the pot some time but we will probably decide over a couple of beers on sat night)
17:00 Recover and drive home.

We will be on VHF Channel 08 or you can call / text me on 07778 555884

Whats the air draft under Hayling bridge ? Gut feeling is -enough air= not enough water , enough water =not enough air ?
