Well done Andy, the vids of these slips is great & what some fantastic water you had, the slip looked a little bit steep, have had a look @ Swindon to Littlehampton, isn't that much longer than to poole so once all me decoratings done (about another 2 weeks) then i've got a few mods to do to the boat & then i'll try & pop down. Talking of mods have you thought of a couple of torpedo tubes for the rat bags? :rofl
That Sammie of yours never seems to stop smiling, is she normally like that or is it just for the camera.

The slip is quite steep Mitch but me and Sammie pull a fully laden boat up even with a flat tyre this week so not too bad at all. I will look forward to seeing you in LA in the near future then matey. Sammie is always smiling especially if we are going boating / fishing, she loves it. I'm going to get some puncture proof wheels, mine isn't punctured but the valve is knackered, no idea how the needle inside got damaged the dust cap has always been on but hey ho. What mods are you planning next? The ones I sent you the links for?

I've got the solid wheels fitted cause I had 3 sets of valves go, there arn't holes for the valves its slots which allows the valves to bend in & come up against the centre nut which eventually rips them from the tube.
I've got a railblaza cleat port & a fairlead to glue on, the patches from the spray canopy has to be glued on, i've got a couple of rod holders to screw onto the transom & I want to sort out a transducer mount, thought i'd try what Steve use's (went to Oban with us) basically it's a piece of wood that clips under the wheel leg & the transducer is screwed to that, he said it works well.

My transducer works well under the right tube, stays in place at the higher speeds too.

Hey Andy, Saw your thread thanks.
Been busy with my 94 year old Mum she's in hospital in Brighton.
Also made a big decision to buy a Warrior 165.
Not thinking about berthing or launching of public ramps.
Phil
