20 touch and go's at Trevet? There used to be restrictions there with regard to to the number of take off and landings, has this all changed now?
How many aircraft are based there now?

Lovely job on the 6 congratulations!

I love the RV8 (someday I'll get round to building one)
I have to get a shed big enough first.

I think the RV12, once it gets approval will make building much more appealling and afordable to wanabe builders too

Flying over water can be a bit unnerving at the best of times, good experience for you though. If I got spooked I would have asked to return to skerries and vacate the zone, you can always make a sugestion to the controller and they will try and do their best.
