    Upgrading from Warrior 165

    Thanks Guys. All good boats. Lots to ponder on there. I’d better get myself out looking Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Upgrading from Warrior 165

    Interesting insights there lads thanks. I’ll take a look at all those options. Any other thoughts are gratefully received. I do quite like the idea of twin outboards and fuel tanks on a barracuda for redundancy and reliability etc. I spose that does mean twice the service cost and less fuel efficiency etc but peace of mind. I spose live bait well and fuel efficiency are areas where I might have to compromise a little. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Upgrading from Warrior 165

    Hi fellas I’ve been quiet on here for years and my Warrior 165 has had precious little use recently because whilst it suits my solo fishing trip needs superbly around Christchurch I would like something bigger to take trips of mates and family in safety and comfort (say five adults on board). So I’m looking to upgrade next season and want to start looking now. Not fixed on budget yet (but I realise it’s going to be a substantial investment) and I’m keen to understand how much I’m likely to need to spend to meet my needs. Here is a list of my requirements :- 1. It will primarily be a fishing boat; 2. I want a self draining deck (this is an absolute must) to make cleanups easier; 3. Most of my fishing is bassing so a purpose built live well would be nice rather than the old faithful blue drum; 4. Needs a space (on bow?) for sunbathing; 5. Capable of good weather offshore trips to Channel Islands etc. I would only ever do this in summer months 6. Fast enough to pull donuts and skiers; 7. Reasonably fuel efficient; 8. I’m not fussed about sleeping accommodation and galley etc - if we go far afield we will stay in b&b and eat ashore 9. I quite like the idea of a walk around centre console style - thoughts on this welcome - is that realistic for summer offshore trips? 10. I Will be looking at second hand models but don’t want anything older than say 2010 unless it’s in really good nick. Any thoughts very gratefully received. V open minded and open to all sorts of ideas. With the wealth of knowledge on here I’m sure you guys can point me in a few directions to consider. I realise views will differ and no one size fits all. So all options will be considered. Thanks and best regards Toby Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Junior Best Specimen Competition

    Taking my two nippers out Sat and Sun this weekend so hoping to post at least a fish or two. So much more pressure to catch with the kids than with your mates! Here's hoping. Toby

    Today At Hengistbury Long Groyne

    Went for a wander on the beach today - fantastic weather!! Something very invigorating about a beach in a storm. Suffice to say no-one was braving the long groyne for a spot of fishing! Toby

    A few Bream for the Nipper

    Had a short and early trip yesterday (pick down at 6am) breaming with my seven year old who outfished me 3 to 1. (Must have been the fact that he was fishing over the groundbait and I was casting away from it - thats my excuse anway!) gotta keep him interested and wanting more I thought! In three hours we had about 15 bream, betweem 1 .5 and 2.5lbs. Plus small pollack, pout, wrasse and doggies. Interestingly, we had nothing until my son demanded that we use worms instead of squid - then suddenly he had two on one drop. So rag was the key for us yesterday. A great mini trip and glad to see the bream are now about in numbers. Toby

    Antifoul Help

    OK then - looks like I'd better antifoul! Thanks for the advice fellas. Toby

    Antifoul Help

    I spose my reluctance to antifoul is born out of hassle, cost. But I don't really know how much hassle and cost is involved in priming then antifouling so maybe I should ask that question too?

    Antifoul Help

    I am thinking about putting my warrior on the Trot moorings in Christchurch Harbour. A key factor in whether or not I do this is whether I should antifoul or not. The boat will probably be in the water on and off - one month in, one month out but will be used at least once a week I spose as a minimum, sometimes more. If i don't antifoul, and use her every week giving her a good blast up to say 25kts, would this use keep the build up down? What would the build up be after a month in the water, and could it easily be removed with a power washer and a bit of elbow grease? Am i risking lasting damage to the boat is I don't antifoul? In short, can I use the mooring without antifouling or should I just stick to tyrailering and launching at Mudeford? Hummmmm? Toby

    Marine Grade Long Nose Pliers

    Thanks Rob - glad to see you have covered off every single eventuality on board (what with 10/0s in other parts) Be prepared eh? Toby

    Marine Grade Long Nose Pliers

    can anyone recommend some decent long nosed pliers that i can leave on the boat all year without rusting up? Bought some "so called" stainless pliers last summer and they are already rusted up! Toby
