Poker Run - 12 aug

Guys,

Thanks very an awesome day out, well organised and met loadsa cool people - the banana shark boat is an awesome peice of machinery, thanks to cookee for the ride loved it!! well impressed with the verado 250, amazingly quiet with a mad surge of accelaration - love it, real shame bout the cat that flipped lucky everyone was okay, kinda put a dampner on the whole day as it was bad, lucky there was so many of craft around at the time with the wind and chop bein as bad as it was - I'll upload a some pics i "shakely" dared to take with my camera fone in the gallery section - couldnt believe the rate the cat went storming past at the start in southhampton, what an fantastic racket coming outta those pipes, can still here it now!!
