No chance, I already have four boats, and another under construction. Running out of space!

I missed your response John, but sounds like good news - possibly. Is the new boat a hornet???

PS : You missed a blast at Colwyn Bay, proper breezy (most of the time) except for when we (and a few others) got blown in to windward in a Force 0.3 :-(

Hmm, maybe I should have put Bill back on the wire - pies are good. Mind you, looking at the launching sequence photos reminded me of Sandwich Bay a few years ago!
That black machine of Mr Edge's looks mean. Shame it broke up. I'm not cutting the scantlings back that far on the new build :)

The launching was not too bad if you timed it right, but re-entry was quite exciting, especially for those with a fixed rudder. We got well and truly 'pooped' and swamped trying to do it properly.

I think Tom Guy told me he just retracted the undercarriage and planed up the beach onto the sand. Courage mon brav!

Mucky Muff (rumour has it that it is supposed to read 'mutt' but nobody calls it that now) has a deal of development ahead, but shows streaks of raw pace on occasions. They are going to lower the floor levels somewhat as Dave is spending a lot of time trying not to fall out.

Any chance we will see you this year?

You could always borrow the class boat, now a proven Nationals winner! Dave Jones and Mark Hogan truly thrashed us.
