    Hi Dave, I have a Westport Marine Pilot 4 with a Honda 50 Like this: I used to have a Warrior 165 The Pilot 4 is a good little boat but not the same animal as the Warrior. I downsized cos I'm old, fat, & unfit with dodgy knees. I can push this one around easily on the unbraked trailer. I still miss the Warrior though. You're welcome to take a look. I'm in Poole. PM me if you'd like a " Butchers " Jim

    Ray Competition

    We gave it a shot Saturday.was a little late getting out and as the weather was due to change in the afternoon we made a dash for an inshore mark, we arrived to see Charlie and the crew trying a similar thing 🙂 however a call from Charlie indicted that weed was hampering play. We stuck it out knowing that if the wind picked up we have some cover from the land .we managed 1 small eye ray over 3lb 8oz. Then the wind started to pick up and the tide was due to turn and we did not fancy that combo. A quick wave to the boys and we finished up with A few bream in the harbour. Mike

    Pilot 500

    I had a QS500 before I upgraded to a 640. It was a lot of boat for the money - lockable wheelhouse & plenty of deck space. It had a Mariner 60hp and did 24kts clean. I read some of the dire warnings at the time but can't say that was my experience. I found the 640 still slams in a short sea, does not sit still at anchor without some tide and not steady on the helm in a 3/4 stern sea so all boats have faults but I still like it. I'd give it a sea trial. PS. I had an Orkney Fastliner 19 before the QS500 and it was a step up from that

    Ray Competition

    Our day went a bit wrong, after a nice early start, the engine cut back as we throttled up outside the harbour The fuel problem is not quite sorted yet, but I was aware that we may need to change the filter head and lift pump assembly. An engineer was going to get me it from Bosch rather than Volvo. Anyway we apologised to Dave and changed our plans. trouble is we never seemed to get wind, tide and fishing linked up Lots of Dogs Mackerel smooth smoothies but not a lot of Rays. In fact only one, a nice Undulate to Dan of 14lb 8oz Dan also had a fit looking bass that went 4lb 12oz, and swam off strongly. We had a good look at the fuel system and the boat was then running a bit better.🙂 At 1500 our 7 hrs was up and we headed in. Great to have Dan and Chrissie onboard for the first time this year. They have had a very busy 2018.

    i have a salcombe flyer 440 similar to this one. http://wowboatsales.com/sale/2000-salcombe-flyer-440-sport---mariner-40-hp--eloptt---trailer-27984/uk Sorry, you have to click on the pictures to see it. There dont seem to be any active listings for any 440s right now. But you can expect to pay up to £4,500 for a good one. They are about 14.5ft long and mine has a 50hp on it. Really flies and gets up on the plane instantly with three blokes in it. Really easy to tow and can be launched and recovered single handed by a beginner (with some coaching!). Good starter boat. Great for harbour/close shore fishing, doesnt really have the freeboard for open seas though, hence why i want to upgrade a bit. I am probably going to sell it at the beginning of next season as I want to upgrade to a 17 footer to go further out. You are more than welcome to come and take a look if you are in the London area and I can talk you through it, just to get some info. I started with my first boat about 6 years ago, (this being my second boat) so I have walked the path you are about to follow! Happy to share my experience!

    Best Rod and Reel Combo under £100?

    If you're after a LOW COST salt water resistant Fixed spool reel with or without the baitrunner function have a look at the KASTKING SHARKY 3 RANGE on ebay from Kastking fishing Hong Kong .I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I just purchased a 6000 series baitrunner for around £46 and 1000 metres of multicolour braid for £19 ish and have christened both . I am very pleased with performances ...very powerful main drag and nice 2nd drag ...I reckon they are good value for the price. Plenty of reviews on You Tube Peteg

    Best Rod and Reel Combo under £100?

    Hello, I am a fan of the GX2, I have 20/30s & 12/20 - great rods for the money. I also 8/12s (but they are Elites - bit more money) with stainless rings etc, again, great action. The 20/30 are good for normal ray, cod fishing etc and wrecking - had blues to 75lb+ on them. 12/20 and good all rounders, very sporting for wrecking! Reel wise, I usually have SloshXA20s on them but the normal Slosh Daiwas are good value too. https://www.anglingdirect.co.uk/daiwa-sealine-slosh-multiplier?gclid=CjwKCAjw85zdBRB6EiwAov3Rin1P7fD0zoYIEp2OKvLncmdxEvZhvgTDF1x65hvTLHAEjo6YRdlExBoCqpkQAvD_BwE Be prepared for 101 different answers on what rod / reel combo people like!!

    Seriously , the ugly stick will be a great rod but, you will need to spend more than £50 on a reel. You will soon be buying a new one if you buy a budget reel. Spend £100-150 on a decent reel and it will last years ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh, forgot to mention, the rubbing action required with the salt is rather personal, so I'd do it out of sight
