    Lazy start

    Out at 9am with Geoff saw us drop the hook on the patch - bream from the off but mainly females - all returned. Geoff weakened and put down mackerel and bingo - Weymouth Wahoo, I noticed serious action on the mini mackerel lures and reeled in a 2,5lb pollack, Tide dropped and fish more sporadic so we upped anchor and tried a drift for plaice - no takers. A fruitless drift in the harbour saw us give up - the wind was much stronger than forecast and it had a cold bite too. Saw Purbeck Miss tied to a mooring buoy in the harbour with not a lot to report. I tried calling any poole bay etc on ch 6 early on and someone tried to reply but the signal was too weak to understand,

    Your welcome Kev, Good first trip West, you showed us how to do it. Ark 🤓 Good to find a few flatties even though the mussel beds didn’t happen, very pleased with how the boat dealt with the sea on the way home, even if the head, loo, compartment filled with water🙄🙄 The Pukka pies were great cold, (microwave broken) how long have I had the boat🤔! We had a great crack and caught our target, thanks for your superb crewing 🤣🤣🤣

    Happy B'day Chris

    Thanks all, had lots of surprises, trip to Venice on Monday that I didn't know about until Sunday. A surprise Chinese dinner last night with the family cooked by Chinese chefs at home, really good. Beer and wine involved. 🍷🍺 Had to go to work and that involved cakes so all good. 🍰 🎂 still got one of these to get through, Jim any offers? 😂 Well spoilt and it wasn't a big one, must be doing something right. 👍👍👍😂 Thanks again all.

    The Irish fisherman.

    The rain was pouring down. There standing in front of a big puddle outside the pub was an old Irishman, drenched, holding a stick, with a piece of string dangling in the water. A passer-by stopped and asked, "What are you doing?" "Fishing" replied the old man. Feeling sorry for the old man, the gent says, "Come in out of the rain and have a drink with me.” In the warmth of the pub, as they sip their whiskies, the gentleman, being a bit of a smart ass, cannot resist asking, "So how many have you caught today?” “You’re the eighth”, replied the old fisherman Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Indians don’t use saddles...!!!

    A woman from New York was driving through a remote part of Arizona when her car broke down. An American Indian on horseback came along and offered her a ride to a nearby town. She climbed up behind him on the horse and they rode off. The ride was uneventful, except that every few minutes the Indian would let out a 'Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a' so loud that it echoed throughout the surrounding hills and canyons. When they arrived in town, he let her off at a local towing service, yelled one final 'Ye-e-e-e-h-a-a-a-a!' and rode off. "What did you do to get that Indian so excited?" asked the service attendant. "Nothing," the woman answered. "I merely sat behind him on the horse, put my arms around his waist, and held onto the saddle horn so I wouldn't fall off." "Lady," the attendant said, "Indians don't use saddles." Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2018 UK Water Related Fatalities Published

    2018 UK Water Related Fatalities Published ‘Cautious optimism’ as the trend towards a reduction of deaths in water continues. The most recent figures from the National Water Safety Forum Water Incident Database (WAID) show that in 2018, 263 people lost their lives in accidental drownings in the UK. Despite a small increase in the number of drownings since 2017 the overall trends suggest reason for ‘cautious optimism’. Deaths from accidental drowning have fallen in the three years since the National Drowning Prevention Strategy was launched. However the figure show a rise in the number of suicides in water. In 2018, as in previous years, men are disproportionately represented in the statistics, with 230 males dying in fatal drowning incidents in the UK. River and beaches continue to be the most common locations for fatal drowning incidents. Last year, 74 people drowned in rivers and 73 on or near beaches. Chairman of National Water Safety Forum, George Rawlinson,said: “We are past the three year mark of the National Drowning Prevention Strategy and it is clear that members of the National Water Safety Forum and many other organisations are making good progress throughout the country to keep people informed of the risks, and working together to prevent drowning. “The overall reduction over the three years is a good indicator that our efforts are paying off and fewer people and families are affected by drowning, but there remains much to be done in order to meet the collective ambition of a future without drowning.” WAID compiles statistics from across the UK from a number of sources including inquests, and breaks these down into deaths by activity, age, location type and geography, to give those working in prevention a clearer idea of where to target interventions. A full copy of the UK Annual Fatal Incident Report for 2018 can be viewed at: www.nationalwatersafety.org.uk/waid/reports-and-data/

    Gear trolley

    I have got fed up with struggling with a large (70ltr) Icey Tec cool box full of ice and, hopefully, fish when I go on friends boats on pontoons. I bought a trolley but it is not really up to the weight involved so have searched for a better solution. I think I have found it in the Mighty Max Cart which is very strongly built, adjustable in that the base extends and has optional extras for carrying additional gear. Not cheap but for quality, what is. I commend it to the house. The picture shows it in the closed position, there are two more options on the extension mechanism. Terry.

    Phaeton for quick sale...

    Not been down to the boat since I posted this last Oct, and didn't get round to advertising elsewhere. I will be heading down next week to check things over and run the boat up (As well as washing it off again...) but if anyone's interested I am extremely open to offers (obviously I expect to show the boat running as well). Finally, if any member wants a well used PBSBAC pennant let me know...
