Going well thanks. Have been enjoying the boat when it's not too hot to use it!

Photo is sort of deceiving. Its probably a good 400 feet from the little cyprus tree to the waters edge. The river is just under a mile wide. I also should have waited to take the second pic which I did about half an hour ago. Five minutes ago a doe and her two fawns just walked across the open area.

Only downside that I have noticed about living here is getting used to driving at a slower speed. A few weeks ago I was trying out the 'Auto Stick' on the Hemi Magnum and got done for reckless driving - 77 in a 55. Have to go to court in early August.

Very much looking forward to racing at Cowes again and seeing everyone. I understand the engines are out of 'Mr. Noisy' and that some mods are being done to the drives to allow larger diameter props.

Will try to post some action shots of the Stinger when I work out how to get stills from the video that was recently done by a friend.

I hugged each and every one of them before they were ripped mercilously from the ground, their innocent roots dangling helplessly and despairingly in the air. A small tear will be shed as their funeral pyre is ignited and their souls drift toward the heavens and their final reward.

Work started on the new dock yesterday. Our neighbour 'Buddy' has decided that a boat lift is not the way to go and will leave his boat in the water with the rest of us hoi polloi.
