    Dunno but I noticed that as well. No obvious netting or straps so must have used lots of velcro or blue tac!

    I wish people would reserve their judgement until they've done an Atlantic crossing themselves, preferrably with a 6 month old on board.

    Have you somehow replied to a post in another thread? If not what prompted this response to a simple question?

    One of our fellow entrants in the ARC carried a jetski on the back of their 45 footer, all the way from the UK and round the Caribbean. Putting aside the desirability of the machine itself, it would seem you can cart all sorts of stuff that way. I imagine the people in the pics have added some extra lashing eyes.

    If folk choose to take a 6 month old with them, that's their personal choice .... and problem.

    Jazz, I think I can see a lashing, certainly through the black handle of the red fuel container anyway mate. I saw a few boats with things stowed on the stern platform leaving the Canaries. Normally not many boats under that ensign go to sea badly prepared, at least not that I've noted. I think you'll be ok unless the weather kicks up, then just haul it aboard.

    Actually, that's quite a massive achievement to win it with that boat and crew isn't it?

    That's a really "makes yer feel good" post.

    Bloody good show I would say. And they have given me an idea where to lash my kids when they get a bit over the top.
