Re: Cowes Sunday 28th

Planning on going out on Sunday, First day with new freshly painted legs !!
Aim is to get to Saxon Wharf for 8;00 and then follow the fleet down the Solent to the start.
Not sure after that.

Give me a ring Mark and see if we can meet up

No problems. Looks like getting a bit windy. Where are you launching from?

Yes got out at the crack of dawn and watched the boats come out from the yatch haven then followed them down the Solent.
did finally meet up with Mark and had a quick run out of Cowes together

Re: Cowes Sunday 28th

Hi Steve
we got out there but weather was not that good with rain and wind and the sea state was quite bad in areas But we clocked up 105 miles total on Sunday,
but had some trouble on way home with steering I think we hit hard on a couple of larger waves and have worn / damaged the steering / gimble,
was a good day tho and enjoyed it,
must get you out on the water as soon as I have sorted / fixed the steering give you a run out in the Scarab.

Re: Cowes Sunday 28th

NO not comming out in it as I know its faster than mine and if I do come out I will want one
and then I will have to sell one of the children to buy bigger and faster and the state my bank account is at the moment with the new house and the new baby buying a new boat cannot be on the list. would love a trip out as soon as I can get a bit of free time

Totally understandable and its not just the boat.The thing that gets me about the Hunton product is the support from the factory for all their boats, not just those under warranty. The ability to get things put right or altered to suit your taste without any hassle what - so - ever.

That alone is worth buying into.

Re: Cowes Sunday 28th

You know you want a ride Mark ...................... the offer is always there,

As Steve said the service and helpfullness from All at Hunton is second to none, Does not matter if its a 20 year old boat to a brand new boat. Each owner is a valued customer whom is treated the same .

Where else do you get that level of service????
