    Free Spirit Changed my mind, back on the quomps Q417 in a couple of weeks, reason terrible road to Poole in the summer and very expensive parking when you get there, looking forward to coming home only ten minutes from where I live, and I missed the few boat owners I got to know there Nick.

  15. Christchurch Bay marks

    Hi All, Fairley new to this area and I need a bit of guidance, I have a Orkney Dory 13ft with a 40hp Tohatsu, it gets me out quickly to where I am going, but not to far for the time being, I am fitting a Lowrance Elite 4m colour chart reader with a Chichester to Start point gold SD card matched to a Lowrance Elite 3X colour sounder, I will usually be running out from Christchurch into the bay and I was hoping that some kind club member could help me out with a few marks in the bay area to get me started, Thank you Brian he gave me some but they are from the Christchurch ledge over towards Pool etc, also is it worth drifting for plaice / sole or is it to rocky. Thank you for your time and local knowledge and I hope to get to some of the club meetings over the next couple of months. Cheers for now. Nick (bobbing along)
