well at long last and very much eleventh hour for us, the new brinks rhapsody has finally arrived and been launched, and as long as a couple of teething problems can be ironed out over the next couple of days, then we will be the first to take her out on hire next monday, i will know more information such as airdraft heights later today, and will post them up soon, this will obviously alter our plans for exploring the upper reaches of the thurne till our next trip over the may bank hols, but at least now we will be able to report back on this new prototype boat for the broads. Smile

That's great news Julia

Will you be taking lots of internal and external piccies for everyone.. it's such an unusual design the layout/space etc seems hard to visualise

Have a brilliant time!

well yes, i will charge up the camra, get together the baking tins, and post the forum logo in the window for rhapsody's maiden voyage, but not sure who's going to be doing the smashing champagne on the hull bit yet!

richard can i have some of your forum cards please to hide in the draws and under the beds please!

she is very much 'out on trial' with us next week, and any probs and the yard have promised to transfere us to another boat, as she has had a minor teething problem on arrival, which hopefully is now solved.(drip! drip! drip!)

anyone that sees us out then give us a wave, plenty of hot coffee, choccy, wine, beer and homemade cake on board, just follow your nose and smell the baking!

must remember to pack me china mugs!

it has rather changed our plans of chugging under potter heigham bridge though, but we hope to do that one on a brinks day boat soon.
anyone know if these need the bridge pilot to get through? i have taken day boats through in the 90's on my own. Smile
just hope i dont stall this new girl with the engine not being 'run in' Evil Grin
saileys, she is brand new so please be carefull if tacking near her, dont want to scare her first time out!
oh and for all you that are wondering, no doggies on board this time, they are curled up infront of the fire at home with my big girls, bit too cold sleeping in the cockpit at this time of year. Playful Wink

ok off to pack me thermals  Blush  Evil Grin

cya maybe next week out on the water!

She looks reasonably tall from what I could see of her in the shed on Sunday.

just hope we can still get under beccles bridge to the locks  Gasp

brinks have not measured her yet, they promised that matthew would get the tape measure out this afternoon, but not received an e-mail yet.

im guessing at around 7ft 6ins,  brinks omega is 8ft 4ins, and one of brinks tallest boats, a real pain at times when it comes to bridges.

Julia,

I hope no one smashes the champagne on the bows what with the thickness of the fibreglass in modern boats.

A little spilled over the bows should do the trick.

and then there is the added bonus of having the rest of it to 'wet the babys head'


Rod

ps keep a look out for us as we will be on the boat until midweek and around the northern parts.

You mean the other Starboard then...

rod, i was only joking, wouldnt dream of doing anything to damage the hull or any other part for that matter, I will feel guilty if the birds poo on the canopy, or we get the ropes muddy. Blush

would be nice though to leave a little momentum on board, such as our forum logo tucked away in a corner, and to see if its still there later in the year when we go back on board. Smile

hubby used to have a trick of signing the tops of any new doors that he hung along the edge that no one sees when they are up, that way, if there were any faults or complaints on a site, he knew exactly which ones he had worked on! Evil Grin
