  1. Jerry when is your boat due to get to Cobbs ? If you have an access issue it may be worth getting in touch with them (MDL) to offer you a temporary berth elsewhere or even switch marina provider either temporarily or permanently. Not really helpful I know especially with your long wait for the new boat and the long voyage ahead
  2. Any reply from Harbour control yet Mal? With the twin sails being closed for maintenance at the end of the month it makes the air draft displays on both bridges even more critical and definitely a safety concern

    Tomorrow - slight window in the weather

    I'll be out but don't know what time I'll get to Cobbs . The wind will drop off in the afternoon so should be quite pleasant. I have space if anyone wants to join me and can be flexible on the time.

    New Police Boat

    Do you reckon they will try and fit them all on the one boat Brian? I'm sure that for ยฃ250,000 it will take 4๐Ÿ˜Ž. Sorry not at my most positive on a weekend of 6 Nations Rugby
  6. I should have brought it up at tonight's club meeting but forgot and Mal wasn't there๐Ÿ˜• Totally agree with you Mick Its been faulty for months and seems no-one is interested. It seems they will be carrying out about 2weeks worth of work on the twin sails bridge at the end of this month a good opportunity to at least get that one sorted . The old bridge air drafts then become more critical with the twin sails out of order as it has less clearance to squeeze under.๐Ÿ˜’

    Hard mono for shark trace.

    I use Rovex 10x mono leader up to 200lb BS but if need over that i would use strimmer nylon . I would still use a wire bite trace if targeting those toothy critters

  12. It seems that you guys may have a chance of actually catching a flounder this time . See the attached WSF link https://www.worldseafishing.com/forums/threads/holes-bay-revisited-flounder-pb-mini-rave.36378865/ Careful you don't go aground trying for them Sorry I can't join you but a Wales visit booked
  13. Sorry to hear that news Mick Hope your wife recovers soon .
  14. The Bristol channel has been subject to commercial agregate/sand dredging for about 50 years. In that time the sand level on my local storm beach has fallen by more than 10 metres vertically .That is, the sand has been removed to such an extent that it has exposed prehistoric peat beds over more than a 7 mile length of beach. The adjacent beaches have also been affected to some lesser degree. Sand is a finite resource you dig a hole and sand from elsewhere moves to fill it in. Eventually the ripple effect reaches the extremeties i.e the local beaches and their sands flow back towards the source of the dredging thus removing it from the beach.. I would oppose this scheme on numerous ecological grounds
