    You sound like a person that likes the last word and happy that Robin had a few problems, why? Because he didn't listen to a few knowitalls? The crew that Robin had assembled was more than enough to cope with anything that came up and so it was proved, Griff has spent years at sea as he has told us. yes Robin had a wobbler, the decision was to put him ashore, they could've tied up there and waited but they chose not to, they had the expierience to make that call. no one was harmed, the boat delivered, I think that's the problem you've got and fwiw I think it's a bitter and twisted mind jealousy gets you nowhere apologies if I've upset anyone else rant over

    Good post and very true. Robin, anyone that's treats an affable guy like you badly is just jealous, simple as that and not worth the time of day, leave them to rot in their own sad self indulgent lives. The amount of people that subscribe to the captains blog must speak volumes. The amount of new posters that signed up because you were sharing a story with a new boat and crew moving a boat halfway round Britain also says something. Your a personality Robin and a likeable one at that. now get that captains head on and start enjoying yourself again, were are all behind you 100% sermon over

    Chris although we've never met, yet!! Who knows, you two were obviously a very strong couple together with your lovely boat. remember all the good times, I'm sure there were very many, i wish you every success and happiness in whatever you choose to do

    Definitely, Griff and the crew need to get off there backsides, get back down here and get this boat back to Plymouth where she came from, right Robin. get ready everyone
  6. It was a great 4 days, everyone that loves boating couldn't feel any less intrigued in the voyage of Robin and the Indy crew, with everyone showing their support. this is a great forum, it deserves all the like minded people coming together as it did last weekend, keep posting peeps we've got something a bit special here, let's build on it cheers all Pete

    Wow, mind you if they hadn't had to fight currants and tide I think my 1623 would've been near enough right....................or not

    Loved every minute of the saga, brilliant, good on you Robin and your awesome crew. Look forward to seeing her on the broads this summer.

    Griff and team Indy although you can't do your final leg you should hold your heads high, that was an epic voyage in some nasty sea. imo Robin has some mighty fine friends in you lot, you can see by the 60+ pages the amount of Nbn willing you lot on. you can't beat things out of your control Griff, hope you've all had a good feed and are putting your feet up with a well deserved pint or 6 anyway, thanks for taking us along, it's been a great trip even tho most of us weren't onboard take care all Pete
