    Christchurch Entrance

    That's because dredging needs an MMO licence that someone has to pay for and obtain. The actual operation costs us at least £10.00 per cubic metre. and there are a lot of cubic metres in that area

    Twin Sails

    Everyone must know that we should have gone for a higher bridge that ; 1. Does not open/close 2. Does not therefore fail open or closed, bringing traffic to a stop. 3 Does not cost a fortune in maintenance over its lifetime 4 Does not need a team of 32 people and a dedicated VHF channel just to get it opening and closing to schedule.

    Hardy 24 Ft Cabbin Boat

    Hi Ray I have to agree with Neil That sounds like a very small engine for such a large boat, and not even run in yet. My last one was 23 ft and had a 60HP inboard diesel on a shaft, we cruised at about 12 knots If you are Happy with your capability and the boats then please be sure that you have done your research. and the fuel is full on departure IE leave Torquay on the Flood tide to get a push across Lyme Bay, arrive at Portland at slack tide to avoid the famous overfalls at the Portland race area. Plan a couple of bolt holes in case the weather gets bad [West Bay, Portland, Weymouth], and if necessary turn back to Torquay before getting into difficulty. Sorry to be so negative, but the sea has to be given respect. The forcast is bad this weekend and I seriously doubt many of us will be going afloat. If you go be very careful Charllie

    Tuna fishing?

    I thought that too from what I had heard about America, but when we went over to Florida last year it seemed not to be very tightly regulated. Apart from distinct season closures They still have much better control than we have though
