Had our first trip to Poole last week. Had to wait out the weekend for the weather to improve but the rest of the week was fab.

Picked up some relatives in Gosport this weekend and cruised them up Southampton Water.

Ended off the trip by checking out the Nab Tower on the way back (just wondered what it looked like !)

Sea was really calm, Poole was nice. took the ferry over to Brownsea Island (did a lot of walking over there) it was lovely.

Here are a few photos taken along the way. (is your boat one of these)

Excellent pics Frontier.

That's some real estate at Sunseeker.

The third pic - is that "The Snapper" ?

Frontier Jnr looks to be a happy chappy /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I think the third pic is the slumseeker that they had at Excel in Jan. Rumoured to be owned by Eddie Jordan of F1 fame.........

SWMBO says she thinks it was The Snapper.

Was just watching your video over on the other post. looked a bit tight down the back of the pontoon! Nice bit of manouvering.
