A run on the banks
Sunday 5 May 2013

I'd been hoping for Notbad 1's maiden launch on Sunday, but the forecast didn't look flat enough.
Throughout the night I kept checking the windspeed at Hilbre weather station - 22 knots...23 knots...24 knots... clearly Monday's forecast single figures wasn't arriving early and there was no way I was going to try her out in that (and I wasn't going to be around on the Bank Hol Monday to try again)

I did at least get her out for a tow around,



first time I've towed anything in my life but after a run around we got back intact and with her safely home on the drive I headed to PSC for a "look"

I wasn't the only one having a look - but it wasn't flattening off any.

Eventually two boats ventured out, "White Star"


and "Mytime" and I was very happy to jump in with Jason for a session



The photos really don't show just how "washing machine" mad it got around the banks on the flood,




First up a Flounder to me




Around 3 hours later Jason's finally showed up




Time for a wild ride back to base, that boat takes some punishment!

Glad to see it on the move but a shame you didn't manage to get it in the water I'm sure it won't be long now. It looks good behind the car Very Happy
