    Pilot 500

    If it's the quicksilver make, I used to have the 580 with a 75hp mariner on and that went well, so if an 80hp it should fly! I found the 580 a nice boat but she was a bit "rock n roly", should imagine the 500 could be the same.....if not worse!

    Near miss whilst at Anchor off Southbourne.

    It even happens in the harbour !!! Anchored up back of Brownsea yesterday in about 4ft water which was nearly 24 degrees. A Targa went to drop their anchor about 10 yards to port and about 15 yards in front of us just as the tide was about to ebb, I told them we would be turning on the tide soon and we could turn and hit them. They did retrieve anchor and moved off, makes you wonder though.

    Post Near Miss at Anchor

    It's a great idea Mal, but in reality I don't think anything will come of it. All the authorities seem to be interested in is money ,not our personal safety. The tossers that cause us problems with their ignorant and downright dangerous manouvers will not change their attitudes ! Happy to sign the petition if you get one going! I think Chris had the best idea though.!!!

    Near miss whilst at Anchor off Southbourne.

    Had same problem on ray mark a few weeks ago with a sailing yacht, could see him coming straight at me............give him a loud blast and he turned slowly going astern of me , all rods out, he went about 15 yards behind me. The greeting I gave him was " is there not enough fuc###g ocean for you" They just look at you with contempt, ignorant bastards! Last year with wife and 11 year grandaughter on board we were coming in towards Poole, out of main channel at 10 knots, saw large cruiser coming from poole in main channel at high speed .............the pratt decided he wanted to go into studland so he cut across my bow missing us by 20yards, he got a loud blast and I got the finger, needless to say it scared the life out of wife and grandaughter !!! Why do these people think they have the right to cause others a problem? You can imagine what their road driving is like !!

    Course adventure

    You were fit then Mal, long walk if I remember ! You could go to the Kennet in the late eighties and get a good bag of barbel then, sometimes the matches were getting huge barbel catches ! Lobworm was my favourite bait there, used to out on the lawn catching the buggers, boy were they hard to get out of the ground without breaking them in two! Used to get some cracking barbel on the stour , but again the otters and " others" decided they were good to eat and that ruined it. As you say..........they fight like a bass......but on steroids!!! Another good barbel river we used to fish was the windrush at Kingstone Bagpuize .

    Course adventure

    I used to go by a fallen tree that was between the "pill box" and the bridge over the river, the other side was CALPAC water if I remember rightly........long time ago now! I was a member of Twickenham Piscatorials who were affiliated to RDAC, some good pike along there too ! Memories eh ?
