I'm still up for it if it's a Sunday and can achieve 12 knots even with my fat arse in it :shame :oops:

Okay so due to popular demand i think the sunday would be the day to go weather dependant as more folk can make it. Weather is unpredictable at this range of forecast but its looking as its gunna be sun and cloud with 15kph winds and potential 20kph gusts so not tooooooo bad.

For those who know i had a slight engine issue in scooooootland. I know its not real world testing but got her bk from repair under warranty that i got when i brought her second hand not new and she has run 40 mins now under hard throttle med and idle and not missed 1nce. Tank all flushes and all fuel filtered so im good to go i hope!!!!!

I hate reliability issues (why i normaly always buy new) but fingers crossed it was just poor fuel as there was loads of crud in the fuel filter funnel i got so i put it down to a poor fuel batch and the filter on the engine not capturing the particles

Fine by me Matt :thumbsup
For those that haven't launched there before here's a screen shot of the carpark, slipway and the address for your satnav :idea:

Baiter carpark and slipway (click image to expand viewing)
Car parking charge for the day was about £6.50 but double that if you've a trailer. No launching fees.
There's a toilet on site and a standpipe you can use to wash down or flush your engine if you bring along a hose pipe.

Are we still looking at a 10.00am launch time :?:
Looking forward to it :drive ohyeh
:cheers

I’m not familiar with the area, but if that’s where we launched from last year Paul, don’t forget the slip ends abruptly - pointed out kindly by Andy B :thumbsup
