    Crew needed

    Nipped into Poole to pick up bait from Andy at 7:45 Down to Cobb's and off for the 8:30 lift. Martin called the bridge operator to let him know we'd like an 8:30 bridge lift please. Only to be told: No 8:30 lift today sir ! Oh well ! tied up to a pontoon, kettle on, ate one of my baguettes. Chucked lines out but only weed. Serenity came past just after 9 with the Radar down and 2 smug faces. ( Bridge lift not needed ) 9:30 and up went the bridge and off we went. Over to the Secret Plaice mark to join lots of other boats. At one time there were 4 of us club boats quite close together. We had a very good day's fishing with numerous plaice. Some of them were keepers. I was " chuffed " with this one at 2lbs 14oz We had Gurnard, Plaice, Martin had a Brill and some mackerel that took his bait as he reeled in. We both had very small smooth hounds too. So yet again I'd like to thank Martin for being a great skipper and host and point out that there was a crew space there which wasn't taken so anyone who thought about it but didn't . . . . . . . You dipped out ! ! !

    Galeon Galia 640?

    If that's the E-Tec engine. I had a 75 HP on my Warrior and was very happy with it. But as Neil ( Tarlach ) said. Always worth getting a proper check up before splashing the dosh. Jim

    boat wanted

    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

    Well said Rob. See if you can get out on Members' boats or at least take a look at them. 14 feet is probably going to limit your choices. I expect Dave ( Coddy ) will supply you a link to his site. He did quite an in depth look at boats a few years ago. Good luck. Jim

    Pilot 500

    Tiddler is a Westport marine Pilot 4 Like this one. I nearly bought a Quicksilver pilot 500 before my warrior. I was told by a dealer not to think it was going to behave like one of the bigger ones. I was told they don't sit still on the water and can make you feel sick due to trying to get all of the features from the bigger ones onto a small boat. Quite unstable? ? ? Never been on one though so I'm just saying what I was told. Jim I have the 50 Horses on mine and 30 MPH is available. ( But only when the water is flat )
