Cold out today!

Just got back from a demo - launched at Yarmouth, and then had lovely wind against tide on trip upto Ocean Village. Got there and met the customers and my jawa wouldn't work properly - from the cold.
Better trip back and even managed a photo!

Took a while - a few shots of the dashboard and steering wheel that I had to bin!

Quiet a funny feeling - out on your own on a cold and windy Solent day, foot down and no hands on the steering wheel.

But after watching those video's of Jonny Boatboy I anything would be OK!!

Looks like another opportunity for the yanks to give us a hard time about how irresponsible the "boatmad" members seem to behave at times

Kill cord was around my leg - and lifejacket was on.

No cruisers around to see if I could do a 'Jonny' though!
