Testing the Sealine F48 in England

Sealine F48I just finished testing the Sealine F48 off the Isle of Wight in southern England, and now I'm back in my hotel room in London. Flying back to NYC in the morning. Y'know, just popped across the pond for 24 hours to do some yachting. I feel so cosmopolitan right now it's not even funny.

Oh and one other thing. These guys are not kidding around about their weather. London fog isn't just the name of a raincoat, it is a real thing. Picture what you think English weather is in your head. That's exactly what it was like today. Intermittently rainy and foggy and blustery. Too bad, the F48 has a pretty sweet sunpad on its bridge that was dying for some attention. Oh well, maybe I'll get on her again someday in warmer climes
