Cheers martyn!

Really looking forward to seeing the magician in action mate!

Bob is strict but he does know his stuff- the things he's picked up on my boat have caused me problems until I did a proper fix- eg he picked up on my battery not being properly tied down- I have since broken 3 different battery securing attempts - each stronger than the last!

You'll love racing mate - it's a real buzz! Different to going out and going mad in the boat! It'll be good to have another black phantom out there- if franks running there'll be three of us!

That was a great little battle we were having skipper- I was having a lot of fun trying to get past you! Three weeks now!

Have you sorted your engine?

Sweet video.

I can't wait to get out there too there will be another Phantom joining the racing. Should get the boat in the water by the middle of June.

Looks like you all had a lot of fun.

John i does not matter how well you clamp in the battery it will always try to escape. But if it explodes it will definitely make you jump.

Good luck everyone. I hope we will get 15 boats plus again soon!!
