Will we get there? It's hard to say. Watch this space.
[Update] Yes, we went and launched the MV Hawes and had a grand time - until the motor starved of fuel and died. It could be a clogged fuel filter, or possibly fuel hoses that were sucking air; we still had over half a tank of petrol. After stripping and checking everything we could find, we had to be towed in by a really nice guy in his flash power boat. It's a great wee launch though, and shows promise.

|The unnamed launch was originally a 22ft Caribou trailer yacht.|
|We went all over Lyttelton Harbour before being towed home.|
