I think you'll find it's easier to trim if you pack a big oul Missus as navigator

I`ll be there. Right on my doorstep, lovely chubly! If you are using the slip over at Mount Batten beware of the new yellow lines that have appeared overnight and also parking on the pavement seems to be be a no no after god knows how long as I found out to my expence at the recent racing.

Silversurfer - I live in Salcombe - but I'll be in the Isle of Man that week and we're due to finish around that date, so if you want to meet up send me a PM and I'll give you my number - Plymouth is 17 miles by water and about an hour in a car in July! If the weather is ok we'll probably go round by boat and you're welcome to join us!

Silversurfer, for all my moaning about parking etc, for me the MountBatten area is still my first choice and thinking about it they recently opened up a large area that was used as the pits for the transat race, if this is open up to jo public then parking for cars and trailers would not be an issue

Cookee - I have seen you launch down at Batson now u mention it. I think it was u a truck with a crane? (v.posh) Just brought the phantom 20 off Carly Baby (formally PhantomC92) but share a phantom 16 called "Cool Runnings II" with my brothers in Salcombe do you know "No Worries" Derek Bashams boat too?

I think i have seen some pics of your boat in the Fort pub as well? - Small World!

Plymouth sounds good never taken the 16 that far because of fuel. BUt can carry 40 gallons on the 20. Do you think thats enough fuel on an XR2? Not sure how far I can go with it only brought it a couple of weeks ago.

Hi there - yes that was me with the lorry!

I know cool runnings and I used to navigate in OCR in Dereks boat, and he drove the first BananaShark for the first season in 2000.

What can I say - they wanted some photos for the wall!

XR2 should use less than 80 litres per hour at race pace, so anything less than that will use a lot less fuel.

Cheers Carl

Do you think the trailer will make the round trip of 530 miles though?

Will do ! Just spoke to Trio and sent them a pic of the crack for inspection - Got my book today as well - I think I might just be worrying about nothing the more I look at it and speak to people.

Just a born worrier I guess!
