Yes I did Colin,

Always went well in the first place, but now I'm more compfortable driving it; which was the main aim of my trip to Gavs t'other weekend.

The Solent/ Southampton were largely Calm(ish), but it took a bit of driving for me to really wang it over all the disturbed water, ferry wakes etc.......................but heh, I'm still learning

Maxim, did you come past me on a Yammy Ski by the Itchen Bridge?

lol, k, was alright but couldn't get the ship on the plane as the hull and leg are caked in weed (not the gd, carribean kind!!) and the top missing from one of the blades.
how long you had your boat now? looked beautiful today!! (the boat not you )

Before accepting a blast in Chaos's wild ride do find out if he has fitted any grab rails yet!
Next time I will be taking a rachet strap to keep my gut in place when im flying about the place!
