  1. During these weak tides it might be useful to know that not all the pot/net buoys use sinking ropes. I managed to foul one today on a line roughly between the Sadler and Dolphin sand. Fortunately I saw it just before it snagged and I managed to free it, but probably only because it was calm, water was clear and I have outboard power. If I had a shaft drive it would have been a different story

    Oil rig in the bay

    With the weather improving we can head out to see if there's any fish left in the bay 😉

    I had forgotten about the live AIS feed - good view of where support vessels are positioned

    Anyone know what the exclusion zone is? Understandably there are mixed feelings but its pretty close to some popular marks so Feb is not a bad month to choose as long as there are no long term effects.

    Pilot 500

    I had a QS500 before I upgraded to a 640. It was a lot of boat for the money - lockable wheelhouse & plenty of deck space. It had a Mariner 60hp and did 24kts clean. I read some of the dire warnings at the time but can't say that was my experience. I found the 640 still slams in a short sea, does not sit still at anchor without some tide and not steady on the helm in a 3/4 stern sea so all boats have faults but I still like it. I'd give it a sea trial. PS. I had an Orkney Fastliner 19 before the QS500 and it was a step up from that

    I know there are a few Tapatalk users out there so I'm hoping someone who reads this can help. I have an Android tablet (Hudl) without a SIM so it's using WIFI. I can post text ok to this and other forums but cannot get an image to upload. If I go to my image store (Photobucket) there is an option to share via Tapatalk. The text gets posted but not the image. I have tried another forum without success. There is also an option in Photobucket to copy the image link and paste-in but I cannot see how to paste! (No CTRL-C/CTRL-V on Android that I have found) Any advice welcome but if you don't understand a word of this I feel your pain too :-) Cheers
