    Aldi carpark scan

    LOCAL CAR PARK SCAM - BEWARE! Please BE WARNED! Over the last month I have become a victim of a clever 'Eastern European' scam whilst out shopping. Simply dropping into ALDI supermarket for a bit of shopping turned out to be quite an experience. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends! Here's how the scam works: Two very good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the boot. They both start cleaning your windscreen, their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T- shirts. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they'll say 'No' and instead they ask you for a lift to another supermarket, in my case, ASDA. You agree and they both get in the back seat. On the way there, they start undressing, until both are completely naked. Then, when you pull over to remonstrate, one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over your lap, kissing you, touching you intimately and thrusting herself against you, while the other one steals your wallet! I had my wallet stolen on December 4th, 9th,10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th and 29th, also on January 1st, 4th, 6th, and twice yesterday. So please warn all the older men you know to be on the lookout for this scam. The best times seem to be just before lunch and about 4:30 in the afternoon. P.S. ASDA have cheap wallets on sale for £1.99 each but LIDL wallets are £1.75 and look better Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New Boat ?????

    Well not really but certainly felt like it After a long wait for parts finally had a chance to take the old girl out for a spin today to test out engine repairs. All I can say was it was a revelation I honestly can't remember when the performance was this good .......really really impressed. So there's life in the old girl yet she performed wonderfully ....30mph with more in hand ...rock solid handling and the throttle was so responsive I honestly thought i had bought a new boat. I must have been pottering along for years with an under performing engine and not known it. It was a pleasure to be out and when dangling a line definitely took a back seat especially with a northerly blowing straight in your face on the drift. So for anyone with an old 2001 Mariner EFI 115HP 4 stroke outboard its performance can be radically improved by fitting a new high pressure fuel pump a fuel regulator and setting it up correctly of course . Big Thank you to Martin and Chris at Holes Bay Marine for sorting it. All I have to do now is get hold of a 100amp marine/leisure battery that fits one of my battery compartments as one of my existing squadron batteries has given up the ghost YEEEE HAAAA

    Poole Bridges height displays Faulty

    Went out from Cobbs Quay Marina today and twin sails display was reading fine from Holes Bay side but had missing indicator lights in the display facing the Old Bridge side. Conversely the Old Bridge display on the twin sails side was totally dead but the display on the Town Quay side was fine. I generally allow a minus 0.3m offset between the Twin sails and old bridge so I was able to calculate expected air draft was ok under the old bridge but not knowing that offset would cause a need to contact the bridge operator for an accurate reading and plenty of circling around between bridges. It works the opposite way from the old bridge but If you can get under that one you are guaranteed to get under the twin sails (provided you don't spend all the time circling around and missing the tide) I may be wrong but I think these faulty displays were mentioned in a previous post some time ago If so why haven't they been fixed.......its not rocket science.....😣

    I hope we will be meeting on the pontoon more regularly and that you will be slipping your mooring ropes and leaving Cobbs. I'm looking for a suitable day for a whiting trip, see you out there.

    Good luck with boat Pete.....I got up early raring to go and saw that heavy frost on the van, didn't fancy slipping and sliding about on the boat on my own, annoying thing is it cleared by 10am and turned into a lovely day! Looks like I'm turning into a fair weather fisherman !!!!! Roll on summer

    Thanks Colin. Will be doing a few jobs on the boat tomorrow. The Cod will have to wait. Things ease off a bit after the next month or so, perhaps pencil something in for the Spring Species and Bream if we are still allowed to catch them. Catch you soon.

    Well done Colin & Bobi I've been on a very big ( computer size model ) for days. Even on our Business workstations I've still been watching the " circle of doom " so I get time to look out of the window. You're lucky to be able to get out. Jim

    Tuna report

    900 K,G, 43 Miles per hour Bluefin Tuna strategy clubmates, If sighted near end of fishing trip approach from behind cast over and when hooked hang on for dear life making sure you are aiming at swash channel, if desired destination is Baiter or Yatch club Cobbs etc, Cut line near ferry, this could save a fortune in fuel!
