  9. Dutch electric pulse fishing

    An industry progressing towards extinction. Most businesses, if they want to sell more and expand, make more of the product they are selling. The fishing industry is continually making itself more efficient to catch more fish but does nothing to sustain it's product. When will they realise that this cannot continue indefinitely. I don't think any of us have noticed an occasion when fish was in short supply in our supermarkets so, where are the extra fish going? Probably the excess is sold off for things like fish meal, etc. Fish are too valuable an asset to be squandered this way.
  10. Site upgrade and server move

    Thanks - both done. Most pages now have the Top 5 Boats on the right hand side of the page. This is only visible to Club Members who are logged in.
  11. Site upgrade and server move

    Hi Steve Can definitely do this, bear with me as will have to write a bit of code to do it. Good find - I've now added a link to the Leaderboard which will appear in Tapatalk. It's in Club Only Section > Members' Boats Year Long Species Hunt at the top - 2018 Species Hunt Leaderboard - let me know you find it OK. Thanks and keep them coming! Oli
  12. Lifejacket check

    Whilst in the garage at the weekend I inflated mine. Still solid 2 days later, a check worth doing plus inspecting the cylinder for corrosion, ensure it is tight etc. I checked my safety knife was still sharp and the light was functional (damp towel across contacts). Easy and essential! Why not do yours!?!?! R

    BBC news - Dutch electric pulse fishing Some info about it, many obvious questions unanswered.
  14. Site upgrade and server move

    Oli Couple of suggested enhancements for the species comp. A list of the species and how often they have been reported (obviously once per boat) but would be interesting (to me anyway) to see the spread by different species particularly the ones that are caught less often. The other is I haven't found a way to view or report on the species comp from Tapatalk it not being part of the forum. Anyway round this? Steve

    Hi Oli I think the leader board with the latest entries only makes for easier reading as you can see how others are doing and still see recent entries. The list does get busy during the first 1/2 year as boat register their catches but it slows as the year progresses so I would have thought the latest 25 entries would be better without showing loads of older reports. Front page would be great Just my thoughts Dave

    When Serenity MF 695 has done this trip , she has 130 Litre tank and I take 3x 20 Litre containers. Poole entrances to Bray harbour is 59.8 nautical. The most she has used one way is 160 litres wreckhopping when fully laden with 3 guys and all their kit, trip took 5 hours. It is good to take some guys to share costs and of course be good company.

  18. Notice to Mariners

    2018 03 Poole Bridge Harbour Traffic Lights.pdf No. 03/2018 15th January 2018 Poole Bridge Harbour Traffic Lights Mariners are advised that until final works are complete on the Poole Lifting Bridge only one set of harbour traffic lights will be working on each side (Upstream/downstream) of the bridge. During this period the green lights will not function. Lights displayed will either be all red (vessels not to proceed) or red with amber (vessels proceed with caution). Mariners are reminded of their obligation to comply with these traffic signals and to navigate with extreme caution when transiting the bridges whilst maintaining a good lookout.

    That's already there under PBSBAC, see screenshot here: Hopefully it's now showing for everyone on other pages too?

    Ok, so my maths calculation was total incorrect, what a dullard. So 88 nautical miles will take about 32 gallons of petrol (about 150 litres). That’s approx £200 both ways. Then add a bit more so £500 on fuel. It’s a lot better than my first attempt at working it out but still pricey. Will have to think long and hard ! And maybe engage my brain properly before I think again in public !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Or in it's own section as it used to be, possibly, with a section on the header.
  22. Alderney 2018

    Back to the drawing board, I think. I would also be quite nervous undertaking a cross channel trip to waters you don't know unaccompanied.

    Oli I think that would be good, I've had a couple of other members say they couldn't find it.
  24. Happy Birthday JayKay

    Enjoy your day. Hope you celebrate in style.

    At those prices, each gallon costs you £5.85, therefore each mile costs you £2.17 (5.85/2.7)

    Hang on, I think I’ve got that all wrong !!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh yeah, and I don’t have a crew member to share the cost ! [emoji22] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I think I have this correct but please pull me up if not ... 140 litres = 30 gallons Fuel consumption at 20knotts/3800 revs = 2.7 mpg 2.7mpg x 30 gallons = 61.4 gallons 61.4 gallons = 280ish litres 280 x £1.30 (per litres) = £364 then x 2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
