Hi John and Len, will never forget my first trip on a Sea Rider sitting behind John. When we came back to the ship's side on Kiwi at full speed, I thought we were going to be smashed to pieces alongside, but John obviously knew that when he cut the throttle the boat would settle in the water and rapidly slow down. Problem was, I didn't know that! Just about had to change underwear after that! Derek Palmer now lives down the road from me. Hope you are both well. Best regards,
George (Allan)

P.S Jimmy Jewell also rings bell with me.
