Solent Sat 31st March

Postby neil h » 29 Mar 2018, 10:23

Right, so weekend weather not looking too bad for Sat/Sun, but I can only get out on Saturday, and want to get the Flatacraft on the water and test her out. Small gremlins hopefully resolved and running fine in the tub but I need water trials.

I'll be taking the auxiliary in case of issues.

Anyone else out and about wants to meet up? If not, I'll possibly stay more local and go to Essex coast.

My boat is sat on a trailer with a flat tyre at the moment :roll:
But I know Paul is itching to get out again.
What's your thoughts?

Paul is itching to get out, but can only make it Sunday :thud

Thinking maybe to launch at Hythe as not been there before. Run over to the Itchen, up and down there a bit possibly, then run down Southampton Water, into Hamble etc. Just general mill out to test things out and find any gremlins with time to get them fixed before Oban

High water Saturday is 10:57 and 12:48 Low water 16:42, but you'd want to be out not much after 15:00.
I need to get the Mariner wet again so as long as i can get the tyre fixed i'd be up for it :thumbsup
