I know it's been said by many already on previous posts, BUT, to Robin and all of TEAM INDY - THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU for letting us share your adventures these last few days - I don't think Robin could have picked a better team of friends to crew her with him on her maiden voyage.

I don't usually think much of social media as it normally just seems to involve photos of what someone had for dinner last night, but thanks to this and other threads it's come of age.

All the best for the future Robin & Team Indy :-)

PS. not quite sure how I will fill the coming few days with :default_beerchug:  Cheers Doug

Maybe he is letting the members of 'Team Indy' that were denied the last leg know before the rest of the world?

As the last Ping was over 40 minutes ago I would safely say (without Catastrophe, Tempest or plague of Locusts)  they are in Brooms

Or and it’s just a thought, he doesn’t want the world to know where she is moored

even though she could be seen from space :default_coat:

Sure hope so. I bet there will be a huge sigh of relief from Robin!

Independence has now completed at Brooms taking on fuel.  She will be shortly moving to her new mooring.  The AIS now disabled.  So apart from getting her alongside Robin and Independence are now at their new home.  Thank goodness for that!  Some adventure eh?

Those last three words summed up the spirit shown on this epic winter journey.

From too much water to not enough. Mechanical (Possibly) issues out of  your control to ones within your control.

Breaking Bulkhead lamps

Cracked skulls

Hell of a shakedown cruise this

Lack of hot wet stuff whilst underway (Not good to starve a Yorkeshireman of his beverage)

Wetherspoons profit forecast has come out this morning shot up 5 points on the FTSE

Amd all I could see when I came on board Sunday night were beaming faces saying we have done this and will carry on

Guys I salute you

And next time I see you all, there's another beer on the bar for you all

Well thank God that's over and ended well. I have followed every inch of the journey over the last few days and it has been a hell of a journey!  As a pensioner, I heave a sigh of relief that  the UK's productivity figures have now  returned to something like normal and if they haven't GET BACK TO WORK, YOU LOT!

Seriously, you have all learned a lot about Indy, her capabilities, and foibles, about each other and about yourselves.  You should all be proud of your achievement which, given the time of year,  the weather and the fact that Indy was a relatively unknown quantity , should not be underestimated.  

HATS OFF TO ALL OF YOU.

Cheers  :default_beerchug:
