JP joins the Dark Side!!

We all know that power-boating is wrong.

From early days of Swallows and Amazons and their "sail is the thing" to adults knowing that real boaters are not those flash wide boys throwing up wakes, but instead are in tune with the waves and the wind have so nothing to do with those nasty, smelly, noisy power boats.

But there is a power to the dark side. Experience the flow of air in your face, the roar of the engine, and the feeling of flight as the hull lifts off to plane over the water.

Yes, alas, JP has spent the day power boating. And he's going to do it again tomorrow, with some pathetic talk about there being "reasons."

Pah! We know what that means. He is lost, lost for ever.

No flowers please.

I was thinking only yesterday that Captain JP's log is now my favorite watery bloggy thing.

Now I'm sure. You are #1.

You are leading us all into the new pastures of power-boat blogging. It's only a matter of time before all the others... Adam, Bonnie, O Docker, the Puffin, the Horse follow your example.

But, you leaving us wondering.. who the comely hull may be?

Or what the homely cull may be?

Ta Tillerman - I'll tell my mum (given that in the US it is that day) and she'll be chuffed.

Alas this powerboat did lack that all important sun bathing beauty, but given the weather was traditional London (ie wet and windy) that was probably just as well.
