Manos,

I reckon a stop at Bristol (Gordano) will be a good idea - I reckon I'll be chuffed out after driving at 60mph up (or down/along!) the M4... as long as I don't forget the trailer's behind and put my foot down

(Martin - I sort of call Brixham "down" from Bristol, but I suppose it's all relative )

Yes it is actually Follow the M5 and you will find exits for Brixham, Topsham, Torquay Exeter etc. Is all relative anyway.
I know this area VERY WELL I go diving in Brixham (sometimes even now the old me) and I was a student in Plymouth for 4 years and I just live up the road (as a matter of speach) from there.

Cheers Pepper, will do that then. Confirm times later on the date.

What have you gone and said pepper (John i think).

Looks like we've gotta ourselves a convoy........

Rubber Duck thats a big 10/4 good buddy:

Sorry, showing my age now.
Sounds like a plan. I think I will tow straight to Plymouth though and launch there as its useful to have the car to get from marina to hotels etc.

- If it were Keith Hart, they'd disappear for sure (reminds me of the episode in "Confronting Posiedon" where Alan, Steve and Clive were waiting eagerly for the beer delivery - Battle Harbour I think - and the guy had drunk it in the way.

Hi Martin,
Yes, assuming I can extracate myself from work the boat will be coming too! I guess we'll firm up the final arrangements nearer the time. However, looking at the size of you engine, I think I'll be following in your wake rather than going down with you!!!
Regards,
Dave

Bought a boat years ago and an engine and regreted afterwards not buying the bigger engine. So this time round went for the big one.

Should make the boat go but don't anticipate going flat out all the time. That power will get used most when the rib has a full load of my Daughter and friends in it and another pile of them towed behind on a blooming great bannana. (in Yellow to match the boat of course)

Could come in usefull for a dash to the coast if out in the deep blue yonder and the weather goes bad.

Look forward to seeing you and others for the meet.

Thanks Manos, having never been to Plymouth, I might ask how far are these hotels from Mayflower Marina. We require hotels, preferably within walking distancefrom the marina.
