    Friday 16th. November.

    As the wind had gone around a little NE I decided to go blow out some cobwebs today at the Rockley end of the harbour with Mr Nash. The plus side being we used about £2.50 in fuel and managed to drown a few worms. The bonus was my first flounder of the season, followed up with plenty of small bass. Not a huge fish but very thick in the body. However as Allan said plenty of crabs stealing the baits still.

    I have found the best way, it took me three props to realise I have a perfect running auxiliary engine on a sprung bracket , It's only a 4hp , it does the job , ( just !) only need 3ft of water and make sure to stick to that plotter , I must admit I love having a nice mooring at Christchurch , the very slow carefull plod to sea and back is not a issue as such , (for me ) Stick to 1 hour either side of HW or pay the price .

    Friday 16th. November.

    Fisheagle was phoned around 8 am. by Neal to say they were coming back in due to rough weather just as we were setting off so, macky and other frozen bait returned to the freezer. Spoke briefly to Chris on Kingfisher and decided to fish the harbour. Tried the Ferry Terminal, Island and several other places in the Harbour. The wind did us no favours. A fair number of different species were caught but not the ones we wanted. The neap tide probably had a lot to do with things, especially the total lack of Flounders. There were also a good number of crabs about but very little weed. On the positive side, I was glad we went out as we got plenty of fresh air and the boat got a good run. Allan

    Twin Sails

    I'm afraid we will never regain the reliability and longevity of the engineering of the Victorian age (there were a few exceptions I admit) when it seems that projects based on tendering to achieve the lowest price and quickest delivery win the day. I am sad to say that in my experience many Companies that win these projects have no idea of what they are getting into as they are basically shell companies reliant upon a previous old school reputation and now have minimal resources so that once they win the job then panic sets in and they try to recruit "staff" to complete it relying on managing the contract to save or make even money . The Victorians generally provided a realistic fixed price for the job and selection was based on the preferred design solution The quality of the available mechanical/electrical equipment available in today's throw away society is price driven and is selected to meet the warranty period which is generally 13 months from customer takeover by which time it has served its purpose and is generally worn out and gets replaced by the customer (or left to rot) with an identical 2 year lifespan unit and so the cycle continues. Granted the Victorian engineers way over designed their projects but they were also maintainable unlike those of today as the necessary skill sets have been purposely removed from the marketplace by the Government sacrificing the Manufacturing for the Financial markets. If the bearing set needs replacing on the twin sails bridge I suspect that it will be replaced with exactly the same type that has failed. There will be no money available or interest it getting the fault properly analysed and an improved design implemented . It will come back to bite them mark my words Just my three penne'th😎

    Christchurch Entrance

    Thanks Mal, for the clear explanation of working out the best times to come and go through the entrance. Like bassdaze I don't understand why they do not dredge as this would attract more boats (revenue) if they could get in/out unrestricted. I have had many conversation regarding this with the mooring people but you don't get anywhere.

    Hi Alum, with the buoys going and only the yellow ones to in place, which side do you keep them on for going out of the run or do they mark the centre of the channel ?

    November Cod Comp

    The weather has forced us to Cancel the cod comp. I do not think I have heard of a cod being caught yet in open waters, so we may not be missing much in the way of catching Cod. Are the Cod going to turn up at all this year? Some Charter skippers are starting to search for species other than Cod to fill their days at Sea. Neal will try to rearrange our Cod Comp.
