    It will be a momentous weekend for me, I should be taking possession of Merlin and beginning my adventures with her.

    The previous owner was very reasonable in agreeing to reduce the price of the vessel to accomodate the repairs that will be necessary to bring her into service.

    Happy days :-)

    Well done, not too sure where you will be but if there is anything that I can help with re Falcon 27' s then please let me know. Perhaps we could arrange a Falcon 27 meet if there are sufficient around the Solent area. Good choice

    Yarmouth for me and Jacaranda tmro night. Breaking with my diet in style by drinking a gallon of cider and champagne (not in the same bucket) followed by steak "on the rocks". A nod to the diet might be fillet instead of ribeye

    Had enough of not going out for the last upteen weekends, so planning to be down Sunday and Monday (seems to be the best weather window). Do some last minute jobs on the boat and probably pop over to Cowes Monday for a few hours. The weather looking just about okay. If sunday looks too good, it will be sod the last minute jobs and off we go.

    My boat went back in today. I've had her polished, serviced, leg rebuilt (ouch)
    new dashboard cover, pretty much all the 'list' ticked off so yipee, new season and Bank holiday here we come.
    Plops her back in the water today and onto her new berth ready for the weekend's fun. Time to bring down the tender that's been stored at home and inflate it and get it secured on the bathing platform. This signals pretty much the end of the ' to do list'
    Go back to the boat 2 hours later to find the dinghy's totally deflated on one side despite being perfectly OK last year when put away.

    Well, that's definitely the start of the season....first job on the 'new never ending list of things to fix'

    Hopefully will get out for a blast somewhere in the Solent. Look out for a V40 with a tender that looks somewhat out'a shape

    Good to hear from another Falcon owner. I noticed that there was talk in an old thread of a falcon owners club, but the link seems to be dead. It might be worth setting up a new one Sorry to thread drift.
