  1. Christchurch

    Summer season ! .....so the channel marker buoys are in.... .....and it's a nice straight sweep out over the Bar...with plenty of water. I went out yesterday morning and there was 2m of water over most of the marked channel. Amazing how the big lumps of sand/stones/gravel have moved and access now looks easy ! Managed a few plaice too, despite the cold , cold water.....still around 5 C.!!
  2. Car wanted

    Now sorted.
  3. Car wanted

    What sort Grah.? I can forward details to my daughter. Alun.
  4. Car wanted

    ...preferably a small one ! My daughter has returned from London [ where she didn't need a car] and now regrets having sold her small Peugeot. Is anyone looking to trade in a small and reliable car.? Post here or call me on 07812447587. Alun.
  5. Predict Wind

    works fine on my pc
  6. Tomorrow weather window

    I'll be out for a few hours in the morning....over the High waters. The Bar at the entrance to Christchurch is very shallow at the mo.....and needs a different route in/out every few days. Some calm weather is needed for the river to 'cut through'. Alun.
  7. Seals released in Poole harbour

    I agree with Dave...but it's been a worsening situation with the flounders for a few years. I think it's about poor spawning / recruitment....possibily something has changed where they spawn in Lyme Bay. Evidence, other than the poor catches, is seen in the Summer months. It used to be the case that when I used to launch at Mudeford [and the water is clear in Summer], there would be lots of little postage stamp size flatties zipping about as you paddled in the shallows....now you just see the odd one or two. Alun.
  8. Bike rack

    Do you have a towball on the back ? There are several bike carriers that drop onto a ball...mine works well [on the back of a Golf] and carries two bikes. Alun.
  9. Bob Horne Memorial Flounder comp

    Saturday much better.
  10. 48 Hour Comp Weather Watch

    Hi Mike...Last week there were plenty of plaice; a few bream but no mackerel on inshore marks, The water was 14.5 C and pretty clear
  11. Fish identification help!

    looks a bit photoshop to me...what's bottom right??...doesn't match bottom left !! Good try....but not a Mudeford resident !
  12. Cherbourg wrecking trip

    Looking better this morning ! .....such is the nature of unsettled situations. Most next week looking calmer now.
  13. Cherbourg wrecking trip

    A week away...and the weather is not shaping up ....forecasts at the mo are giving unsettled and wet !! Good ol' Brit Summer [ perhaps we've had the best already??] !
  14. Brexit foreign trawlers?

    Turns out to be meaningless.....
  15. Brexit foreign trawlers?

    I don't think there are enough boats in the navy to police / enforce this [66 not counting subs !]....but it could be one of their more useful tasks !
