Thumbs up Re: Sa****ay 2 Dec

Les, Andre and Lukaz,

Glad we finally met this morning and as discussed my mobile no is - 07802 211838.

I also checked the boat out and it looks like all it was was the sea weed that was causing the problem so all's fine again in LA !!!!

Cheers

Nick

Re: Saturday 2 Dec

Well I had real intentions of launching Seahawk IV and going out for a blast

Left home after 9 and half way to LA the sky just opened and down the rain came. By the time I got to LA all was clear. Met up with Lukasz by the bridge and off we drove to the West Beach to have a peep at the sea conditions. Water quite high and the sea not too bad.
In the marina we meet up with Les and Nick. The sky is now quite clear and no rain coming down. It is 11 AM and last recovery 1: 30 and the ebb tide is running very fast.
I am p***ed off as there is no point in putting the rib on the water so back to home it is.
Perhaps next weekend will be better

Andre

Re: Saturday 2 Dec

With two and a half hours to last recovery it must have been tempting to have a two hour blast.
Trouble is last recovery no longer ties up with last one safely over the bar. Also being spring tides it would be touch and go if you could get back in.

Re: Saturday 2 Dec

When you hoping to go out next weekend Andre?

need to come down that way and maybe meet up with you guys?

Like Robbie says with the tides how they are the chances of getting stuck on the bar are even greater, boating from LH is getting too restrictive

Andre,
Hope weather is fine for you, would join you but will be in Middlesbrough. It was a pity the time & tide were against us last Sat.
