At 6'5 and 20 stone,you'd not mistake him for 'our' Chris [well not the height bit anyway!]
Bugger slows the Rib down a bit though!

Sure enough Bif....still, you often get some REALY mixed sea conditions in the B.C.,not unlike the Solent,at times. Really unpredictable with the huge tidal range,makes for some great cruising. Maybe get you down this way sometime!

Diving in the BC IS a whole new sensation..!Once dived a Collier out of Boscasltle, great wreck and 10m vis!REALY enjoyed it over slack water... Until the the tide got up! four of us on the shot line doing our Deco stops, 4-5 knots on a neap!! looked like flags in a gale!Felt like your mask would be ripped off...O2 all round![NICE place Timberscombe,good deer stalking country!
