Itchen & Scratchin Run?

Post by Rapier »

Anyone up for an informal salt water run, possibly 4th July, or 25th July?

4th is out for me as I am away, 25th is a possible but I will have to check the calendar when I get home.
Mercs are like women, no 2 are exactly alike. That's what testing is about. In general it is safer to test motors and props than women!

Cant do either date I'm afraid :cry: shame too as I was hoping to compensate for the lack of Hayling island.

You're always welcome in my boat. Hopefully it won't sink after my winter's work.

I could be heading out this weekend, Will be my first trip out on the boat since getting it 18 months ago, Sadly not a lot has been done in the way of restoration but it at least has a nicely running motor now.
Actually it's all going to be a new experience for me. Most of the boats I've launched have involved a 300T plus crane, so slipping one off the trailer will be somewhat interesting as a newbie. This is assuming I can manage to reverse it down the ramp in the first place!

Wish me luck! :wot:
