Well, I think I might need to find my diving suit and waterwings. "WET" is the summary I recently had for this boat. I am really looking forward to it.

The sun is shining here too! It was a pleasure receiving you all and BSC hope you will make this a permanent fixture. As for the micoclimate, all I can say is that we had it better than most.

I was wondering if there were some folk who are worried about towing a boat all the way through the outback of Essex. If so I can lend either a Merlin or N12.
