    Oil rig in the bay

    Yes, the 6753 tons of chemicals and 8 tons of biocide that’s going to be discharged into the water doesn’t sound good at all

    Shellbay moorings

    Thanks for the suggestions, looks like I’ve got some phone calls to make

    Shellbay moorings

    I emailed the North Haven club, they don’t do winter moorings anymore, boats have to leave the water by the 1st Oct

    Shellbay moorings

    No I’ll take a look, thanks for the suggestion, most places I looked at don’t do winter moorings just winter storage

    Shellbay moorings

    Thanks, we can’t really get out from Christchurch in the winter so might give it a go, it is a bit of a pain to get to but can put up with that if it means we can still go out fishing

    Shellbay moorings

    I’m looking for some advice on whether the moorings at Shell Bay are any good over the winter months. We were thinking of renting a mooring there just for the winter months so we can still get out fishing when the entrance at Christchurch gets shallow. They seem really cheap so I presume there must be some issue with them, any advice is welcome

    Near miss whilst at Anchor off Southbourne.

    We had a couple of large boats pass close to us whilst off Southbourne rough but not as close as this. I think these people are watching their GPS rather than paying attention to what’s in front of them, no consideration for other people

    Bank Holiday garage sort out

    I'll buy it if it's still for sale. The anchor on the boat we just bought isn't heavy enough so this one will be ideal. I'm going to the meeting on Thursday if you want to bring it along then 👍

    Mal, do you still have one of the Bruce anchor's for sale? If so how much do you want for it Steve

    Sorry for the late update I've been really busy. When we headed out to our mooring it was raining lightly which didn't bother us too much. Upon getting onto the boat we saw that the propeller had been dented by the boat moored next to us as it looks as though the mooring next to us is moving. We took the boat out of the harbour and into Christchurch bay and the dent to the prop didn't seem to cause too many problems with the performance of the boat. We went over to the ledge to try and do some fishing. When we got there we had 30 minutes fishing until it started to rain heavily and the visibly dropped slightly. We packed the rods up and headed back to the harbour and moored up again. We didn't catch any fish on this trip out but it was good to take the boat out and give it a proper test for the first time.

    Thanks guys, off out in a bit, that's the only problem with Christchurch you have to go out at high water

    Hi, My name is Steve, I have just joined the club after it was recommended to me by several people. My father has just bought a Quicksilver 530 and we are using it out of Christchurch. We spent a day sorting the boat out the other day and took it out to its mooring. The day was a big learning curve as this is the first time we have moored in the harbour having previously trailer launched boats from baiter. We are off out on our first fishing trip on it tomorrow and my son is hoping to catch his very first fish. I'm hoping to be able to post a picture of him with some sort of catch tomorrow evening. I look forward to attending the meeting next week and meeting everyone. Steve
