    Thanks from the FlowerPowers for organising.
    Everyone enjoyed the evening, and for one, it was "love at first sight" ... Sophie went to sleep dreaming about small dogs

    The pesky word we couldn't remember: FREEBOARD

    And a "what was it" picture that caused me a mini-drama on the way across:

    Most of 'em, I think, but I was just chucking the pieces angrily overboard into the Solent as I found them, so not much chance to check that I had enough bits to make a complete one.

    I'll take the exhaust elbow and heat exchanger end cap off later to check for leftovers. Advantage of having the strainer AFTER the pump is that it catches the pieces when this happens.

    Impellor was brand new

    Speak for yourself. I resemble comments like that.

    Gary,

    thanks for organising a great evening.

    Pleased to say I was a lot better behaved this time, eating at the pub helped, so I can remember most of the evening.

    Or at least right up until the point we stopped in at the Boathouse in Swanwick Marina on the way back to the boat.........

    Just hope I didn't start singing Cornish rugby songs!
