Well what can I say, another great Mayhem weekend (rain what rain) great to meet up with old friends again, and make some new ones. The BBQ evenings were the best yet, for next year I will be brewing something up for our friends from Glasgow (who once again kept us amused.....and hung over---we'll get you  %) )
Took a little while to dry things out at home, but all done in rapid time, because  (you're gonna love this) had to go to workshop as Stephanie wants to build her own straight runner (I think she is taking this scoring more than me way too far  <*< ) well we have the keel and bulkheads done, all stringers on, prop shaft made, engine mounts made and motor lined up, and its only Tues........watch out next year  O0 O0
So I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did (to old for running around the pond Stav  :o) Congratulations to Martin and family (I do like my tea) and a big thank you to all at the Wicksteed club for letting us come along and cause....well Mayhem, here's to next year.....
Sorry you guys missed it Slug.....but next year the weather will be ........well thats another story   ;)
