Love the Auld Lang Syne bit made me want to get the kleenex out as i was with the skipper at the moment of parting .Well here's to crewing on the next craft and the start of another maritime adventure and of course a brand new thread. Look out Humber cod we are a coming to get you !!!!!.


Cheers from the Crew

I put it on ebay about a month ago, patron , and someone bought it using the buy it now button , then that was all I heard from them (tw@s) totally ignored me and ebay , so after 8/9 days I had to relist , couple of guys came over from Liverpool today and pick it up ,
So im officially boatless
Won’t last for long . hopefully getting a new OCEAN HD420 (4.2mt inflatable,a sexy red and black one ) and new glalved trailer next week and i might have chance of a 15hp 4 stroke honda to push it along ,
http://www.prowaveinflatables.com/oceanhd.html

that means me and the crew can launch any time , instead of 2 hours either side of high water , if the water went out too far we would have struggled to get Meboat on the trailer and would have to stay there till the tide came in again (8 hours later )
