Sorry I hit submit before I made comments.
These are a couple of post MMOR pictures.
One picture is of John and I at the launch ramp ready to leave(after towing him to the launch ramp...I think I have a video of that somewhere :) ) The other is my weapon against the pirates of Port Credit...Finally, something on my boat that's bigger than Highlander's :D

It just feels like my boat is, well, coming up short, at least in that crowd. Need to find some way to compensate.

Just call me 'Stubby'. :wink: :D

Looks can be deceiving. My ballast tank was full and still, the weight of the inflatable and it's tiny (2.5) outboard raised the arse end high in the air. This was after I had moved the heavy items - toolbox, anchor, wine etc. further aft from our earlier trip on the Trent. You should have seen us then. Like a full Kuwaiti supertanker leaving the gulf.
Pulled it out the other day and judging by the oil on the hull from Pt Credit harbour perhaps I should apply for Federal clean-up assistance.
Funny, the analysis said it was Scottish crude! :D

The admiral comes from a trawler background, and actually prefers boats with lots more glass. Maybe one of these . . .
