Gladys is now down on the beach, ready for use. She should be floating by 11-15, and Mike is keeping an eye on her to make sure she doesn't drift off, or fill up whilst on her side. Don't forget to recover the fender.
She should be usable from that time onwards, so if you wish to arrive slightly early you may find it easier to get to her from the shore.
I would have loved to have a row today, but I'm committed elsewhere.
