Nick,
 If my photo has encouraged you to change your photo then I am proud of what I have achieved for my fellow man. ;D

Kip now looks a distiguished as us, although Kim and my good self have looked like this for a good while😜
I am thinking of upgrading my photo to bring it in line with what appears to be - "accepted practice"
It always seems bizarre to congratulate on actually NOT doing something!--- but - Kip- youve done us proud‼👍🏼
We now all look old------🤓

2017 Facelift for better or worse.

Will it or wont it stay. Not sure but sure saves the daily shave chore.
Taken on a tour of Wembley Stadium sitting in the managers chair in the press room.
A chair normally occupied by the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, . Jose Mourinho,  Arsene Wenger,  Prince William,etc

I expect they will have a plaque made now honouring my visit.

Run up those engines. If nothing else does they will come out on their own.

Being one of the "Four". Weather conditions were good and there was very little wind and wave state was.................well, see for youself (see pic).
I can confirm that most of the craft's damage was created by the RNLI rescue to lift it on-board. They used initially a rope around the steering yoke to lift the craft; then when the yoke bent it was moved to the bow and hence that breaking. No negatives to the RNLI. They were great. The pilot had been rescued by one of the remaining three craft immediately and we all had then re-grouped & headed for the beach at Alum Bay; pilot was fine. The craft though could have been a shipping hazard of course hence the call to the RNLI. I was the craft through before the incident and although choppy it was not difficult to negotiate it with care and the BHC Marlin III performed well to fly through the gap. Freak waves are out there and yes; the day you treat the sea with disregard is the time you should give it all up and stay land side!!!
