Have the best of both worlds like I intend to. Arrive early, have a beer then go out to find the 'floptilla'.

PS You're welcome for a spin out.

Keep an eye out on the horizon for the floptilla's exhaust fumes.

We are rendezvousing with DizzyLizzy mid-solent at 0930.

Should we keep an eye out for you too?

... and the list grows for cross-channel:

RIBS
David + 1 Grimalkin Ribcraft 7.5 Avocet
Trevor + 1 DizzyLizzy Ballistic 6.8 DizzyLizzy
Tim + 1 Cin Cirrah Ocean 8.0 tim griffin
Mick + 2 Rapid Solent 6.0 Mick Balch
Tony + 1 Mustard Ribeye 7.85 JABS
Andy + 1 Ditherer Avon 6.2 Andy Moore
Roy + 1 Cookie Jar Scorpion 8.1 Roy Smith
Mark + 2 ? Stingher 6.9 -

HARDBOATS
Chris + 6 Ginger Crew Sunseeker 10m Ginger Crew
Jimmy + 3 Firecrest Botnia Targa 10m -

JET-SKIS
Paul + 1 other (and another 1 possibly)

Any chance of the other jet-skier's name or the vessel name for the Stingher?

Do the jet-skis have coms? Would MMSI numbers be useful? Do you want full crew names? Anything else you want to know?

Tim,

I will inform the CG from The Needles with boat number from late Friday night.

What time shall we decide on go/no go? Say 20.00 Friday?

Alderney Floptilla

OK: here's the latest:

RIBS
David + 1 Grimalkin Ribcraft 7.5 Avocet
Trevor + 1 DizzyLizzy Ballistic 6.8 DizzyLizzy
Tim + 1 Cin Cirrah Ocean 8.0 tim griffin
Mick + 2 Rapid Solent 6.0 Mick Balch
Tony + 1 Mustard Ribeye 7.85 JABS
Andy + 1 Ditherer Avon 6.2 Andy Moore
Roy + 1 Cookie Jar Scorpion 8.1 Roy Smith
Mark + 2 ? Stingher 6.9 -

HARDBOATS
Chris + 6 Ginger Crew Sunseeker 10m Ginger Crew
Jimmy + 3 Firecrest Botnia Targa 10m -

JET-SKIS
Paul Blow N Away B/w Honda J/S size Paul Cannell
Kevin Banshee Bl Skidoo GTX J/S size -

All have coms either H/H or fixed (or both)

I think that's it but let me know if there's more. The idea is for me to laminate the list and provide a copy for anyone that wants one: it will help as an introduction between those that don't know each other already and should save having to write names on duck-tape on boats.

I'm happy to do this but let me know if anything else needs to be added to the list (by way of additional information or names) or if any changes are needed.

Sorry! Only picked up your PM after my last post (No 175) and wanted to send the following but can't 'cos your mailbox is full! The duck tape/identification idea is good but, I suspect, too difficult to manage successfully at this stage.

I know that Trevor (DizzyLizzy) gets confused between Dave/David, Grimalkin and Avocet and refers to me as he feels inclined but I can live with that.

I've now got Grimalkin fairly boldly displayed on the boat and I think that most of the boats are fairly distinctive anyway: I suspect that, whatever we do, after a two and a half hour crossing, we'll recognise the boats but not the owners when we meet afterwards!

Laminated list

Brilliant idea.

Thanks David.

I am trying to get hold of a large red dryboard marker which will write on the console. I don't think duct tape would be readable from very far.

Tony and Ros!
