    Most places on the island are quite understanding about postponing and cancellations which happens more often than not but check with wherever you book that they are too. I’ll be staying on board but have stayed in the Simerock before (probably would look to stay somewhere else if I stayed in the island again). Aiming for same dates as Charlie. Crew are living it up in the Braye Beach hotel

    Some big (12inch+) wrecking booms like these https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-5-HEAVY-DUTY-WRECKING-Anti-Tangle-Clear-extra-strong-booms-13-long-45-bend/282880204157?hash=item41dcf95d7d:g:kZMAAOSwicpaebPA and some 6inch sidewinders will do you. If you get a pack of the “Cod Squad” and the “Bass Pack” they’re assorted so you’ll get 6 colours to play with https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sidewinder-Sandeel-Lures-Sandeels-Bass-Lures-Cod-Fishing-Lures-6-or-4/221849631045?hash=item33a744b945:m:m6fHjXO1uIW74-RJ0ChJQQA As Martin said - you couldn’t be going with a better skipper. Edit to add - could be worth taking a heavier rod too, 20/30lb for the Tope fishing off speedy rock out there (plus of course if Charlie gets his “conger fever” on the way home)
  3. Happy Birthday to Dave Lynes.

    I think we're looking at any of the first three weekendsof May, whichever has the weather that allows it.
  5. Site upgrade and server move

    Thanks Paul, I do have a full backup but I think the missing ones are more to do with them not linking up properly as part of the upgrade - posts with missing photos would unfortunately mean manually going through them and linking them all up I think.
  6. Thanks - this is now fixed and the links are at the top of the page. The forum won't allow me to make them part of a post.
  7. Birthday greetings Martin

    Happy birthday Martin

  9. Site upgrade and server move

    Thanks - both done. Most pages now have the Top 5 Boats on the right hand side of the page. This is only visible to Club Members who are logged in.
  10. Site upgrade and server move

    Hi Steve Can definitely do this, bear with me as will have to write a bit of code to do it. Good find - I've now added a link to the Leaderboard which will appear in Tapatalk. It's in Club Only Section > Members' Boats Year Long Species Hunt at the top - 2018 Species Hunt Leaderboard - let me know you find it OK. Thanks and keep them coming! Oli
  11. Calendar

    That's already there under PBSBAC, see screenshot here: Hopefully it's now showing for everyone on other pages too?

    At those prices, each gallon costs you £5.85, therefore each mile costs you £2.17 (5.85/2.7)

    First time we went we took a couple of drums of fuel and refueled mid-channel. It was blowing a F4-5 and not an experience I'd recommend but I think we were all a bit eager that year and tend to be a bit more fair-weather now for that trip (well most of us!) so it would certainly be do-able.
  14. Site upgrade and server move

    Now the Species Hunt is underway I've made a couple of slight adjustments: 1. On the Leaderboard page at the bottom I've added the 10 most recent entries across all boats. 2. There is now a page where you can view the last 50 entries across all boats. This can be found under the Species Hunt > Recently Added menu. Feedback on whether we need both or whether I just make the Leaderboard page have 50, 100, 25 etc would be appreciated. To give it more prominence I was also considering a Top 5 of the leaderboard at the top of the site homepage. This would only be visible to Club Members so while for us it would shift the "Welcome" / "Join the Club" section down a bit, we're all already members so it doesn't matter and for non-members the site would still appear exactly as-is. Main reason for doing so is that because the Species Hunt is no longer done by forum posts, it doesn't appear when you click View New Content Again Feedback much appreciated! Oli
