Watershed shows up at 1246 UTC / 30.4 knots / 43o at the north end of Loch Lochy, but nothing later than that.

User error innit !
All the rest of "my fleet" in marine traffic remain viewable. I use it extensively to track my customers. Of course this is because they are commercial vessels and leave the transmitter powered.

I check the ais last night Duma made Whitby but the targa still looked like stuck in Inverness.

Duma (and I assume rest of the ribs) now north of Grimsby so looks like Lowestoft tonight, 2 days behind.

Unfortunately I may not be about Tuesday to meet and greet in RAMSGATE which is a real shame.

But what do I know.

It looks like 3 of the 4 Volvo engines in the 2 targa's have been playing up, I would reckon flogging a dead horse is the word from up norf!, ribs have all left Grimsby and are still heading down hill

Only 3 volvos in the targas! Still, it will always take brave men to buy a brand new and a ten year old boat, then set off around Britain less than a week later!

Daughter just delivered an 18m High Speed Craft into Grimsby this afternoon. Reported 4m beam sea in the last two hours, struggling to keep the tea in the mug (which is usually my guide as to whether or not I should be out there in the first place!), ...she was going the uphill direction.

Looks like the Targa's have retired they will go back home on lorries

Meanwhile we are at Lowestoft, 6 ribs in total:

Black hawk
Duma
Finn
Blue Ray
Kalish
Scrambled

Rick G is not feeling well so he has also retired

The East coast is tough, the waves are not massive but it's just horrible choppy rubbish!!

Off to Ramsgate today...

Keep going guys! Was out on sat near Anglesey and the short sharp wind over tide chop was great fun, for playing in, for hours on end it'd be horrible. Hope it flattens off for you.

Mike in Hot Lemon and Joachim in Cetus (From Round Ireland last year) are also hoping to meet us in Ramsgate tonight. It's the last night of the cruise so party time. Aah - 150 miles including Beachy Head and Selsey Bill to do on Tuesday so probably not too big a party!

Ah well. They could leave the knackered engines in, paint one yellow and black and moor it in front of The Gazelle - it might find a discerning buyer...
