Nice one Paul lets play the weather by ear hopefully we'll have sun, or at least no rain!
I'll aim to be there at 10 (pending weather check) as need to give the boat a blow job and then get the butties on etc.

Gents,

There are two possible launch sites inn Herne Bay from what I can make out the one at Hampton Pier seems to be slightly easier to launch from.
Here is a map of the site.
I will be down there from 10:00 as I have to set up the boat etc and get the bacon butties and kettle on, which will take a bit of faffing about so will be more like 11 before I'm ready to hit the water.
I will head for this launch site unless you gents know of a better place in the local area. Cheers!!

Hi Chaps

I can't make it. Not due to availability but I can't get access to the boat as the builders have dumped a huge skip on my drive.
I just brought a battery for the pump hoping to trial run it too lol

I am not having any luck getting out this summer!. GGGrrrrrr
I must get out next month, because Scotland will be last outing until probably March next month.

Hi James, that's a shame we would have had 3 x 360's out there! You're welcome to jump in one of our boats if you want, but if not then will catch you on the next outing!

All the best,

H

Looks like the winds have picked up :( along with the wave heights/swell :-x
Still do-able but it'll be a lumpy ride so make sure everything's battened down :idea:
I'm aiming to be there around 10am but it's a 2.5 hour drive around the M25 so anything can happen :roll:
I'll PM you my mobile number and you do the same just incase I need to contact you :idea: :thumbsup
:cheers
