Channel islands, 16th October 2006

Planning a trip down in my new boat if the weather suits, leaving Lymington, anyone fancy a run down and an overnight stop? If the weather is against us will drive to a local pub and drink...

Sounds like an easy plan.

Ollie

I would be up for it - but can only really make it on a weekend - work load is stacked against me at the moment

What engine setup you going for?

Has to be a Monday for work reasons for me, weekends my busy time

Gone for the 275 Verado, fancied a complete change from my last engine a 225 Opti and other than a diesel this seemed to be the best fit..

Ollie,

I might be up for that, subject to weather etc.

Have you got any crew ? Rather than get the boat out and try to press gang some poor unsuspecting soul, I might prefer to jump on your shiny new scorp, if that's an option.

My land loving friend wants to come down but his interest is the beer rather than the sea so a nautical crew member would be most welcome... Will definately be there for the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday weather will determine where we go, keep in touch but your welcome aboard..

You'd better hope the weather calms down a bit. Bloody awful at the moment. Really wouldn't fancy being out there today! We've hardly had a fair day below F5 for weeks (well it seems like that long anyway)

The weather here has been rough and rather windy even for you hardened ribbers. Looks like its going to die down for Sat and Sun, with some fantastic high tides. Came back from the Chinese tonight along our sea front, aahhhh Full moon and 9.9m high tide, beautiful

We were looking for something to do with the boat next week

Suspect it'll probably be too rough for us though

Hi Harry,

You not at college next week ?

You and Dave would be welcome to jump on Caprisante.

Broke the top 2 engine mounting bolts on the way to Weymouth last Saturday. Very disconcerting to look back and see your lump hanging at a precarious angle !!

Going to get them to hold the engine on so you don't have to shell out for new bolts eh?

Seriously, did you get it all sorted ok? Any damage done?

Would they be stainless steel bolts, Brian?

Boat is now ready I am told although with the handover etc on Monday it would be a late start to go anywhere so will just play with boat on Solent on Monday, the Tuesday is weather dependant as to where we go but will be there and Alderny works if the gods are kind. Happy to meet up still if anybody interested in a run out.

All sorted. Some good grease monkeys in BIBOA ! Thanks to Jon Adlard and my own Mike. Only damage was a bit of mental anguish on my part...

JW

Yeah, stainless alright. Taking a bit of a pounding after St Albans, there was a muffled bang. Thought it might have been the A frame at first. Didn't see anything untoward from the helm position. Few minutes later, still in an ugly chop, another muffled bang, not as loud as the first. Boat went all floppy, thought I'd broken it's back for a couple of minutes. Looked around again and my beautiful Yamaha was looking decidedly sick.

Ollie,

Weather is looking optimistic. Fingers crossed.

Harry,

Do students these days do any bloody work at all ? ( That's rich coming from me as I haven't done a stroke since March ! ) Be great to see you both.

Brian

Saw the boat last night, if I didn't know, i'd have never guessed you had problems

I think I might be adding some engine bolts to my "boat kit"... never really thought about the bolts snapping before.

I guess one thing, it proves your transom is strong!
