    yeh i think so, gone to a4,s everybody was qouting all sorts of sizes even volvo penta qouted 3 different sizes on 3 occasions so a4 came out as the average, anyway we'll see this weekend! cant wait. yeh i love it down at your end, coming at easter hopefully although iv'e just noticed llanthony bridge has shut down again with no opening date.. following an incident with a similar bridge... the diesel in the marina has gone through the roof now 63p a litre!! will have a look at seaqbourne on saturday i think..

    Holy moly - 63p a litre thats shocking, better trying slimbrige or stokie - A4s dont sound to bad, i would have thought A4 or A5 - how heavy is Solitare 2? are you out and about for the whitsun week?

    yeh i would try them normally buy we haven't got a licence till 1st april so i dont want to attract the gastapo's attention by going through a lock!!! yeh we should be around, my parents will be with us this time so only flat calms will do, ha. i reckon it to be between 6 or 7 ton, the engines are smaller than first thought being aqd41a's which are 150 hp. ive been reading with interest about this meet and as we have 2 spaniels anybody else should know that dogs are prohibited from landing on lundy... or we would be there, it vlooks great...
