Thanks very much to Jewson for provision of buoyancy foam (by way
of an 8×4 ft panel of building insulation).

With all the additional
gear that is needed for the Irish Sea Crossing the raft is running pretty close
to maximum load capacity. This extra buoyancy
foam will be added to provide a bit of a “comfort factor” so that I have a bit
more buoyancy margin, should I need it.

I have to say, that I
was very impressed with how swiftly and heartily Jewson responded to my “random
request” for foam to help me walk across the Irish Sea!

So thanks to Jewson for
being so supportive about my effort to support two great charities.
