It was Kens 60th Birthday (and he looks bloody good for it) so Happy Birthday Ken from us on Derwent6.
Alan & David ran through the spill of the Axiom Prop, which we've got to say looks good with advantages like better economy, less wake, quieter, and best of all, steering in reverse, so none of that pushing the stern out when trying to moor bow first. But all this aside we just want the noise sorted out.
While they were all here Bubs and Keith turned up as they were also interested in this new prop, so we had nine on board, it was like having a party with the sawdust all over the floor as well.
We gave Ken his birthday card and present (so he could put his badge on) and all the Fernwood guys left mid afternoon. We headed down to Frankie and Benny's with Bubs' & Keith for a bit of grub, and then onto the cinema for the second night to see "The curious case of Benjamin Button" . Well you have to get it in while you're close to a 10 screen cinema.
