    Trailer Wanted

    After a long period of time using Star Turn as a driveway ornament, the time has come to get her back to a useable condition. Looking at the trailer, it needs all sorts of bits replaced, probably most things other than the actual chassis, which is absolutely fine. I would do this, but the trailer was never really big enough for the boat anyway, so I figure I'd be better off looking out for a decent 'correct' trailer, and moving mine on as a project for someone to refurbish. New ones look lovely, but are out of my budget, So I'm on the lookout for a trailer for a heavy (I reckon easily 850kg with fuel on board) 18' Shetland Family Four, please. So it must be braked. Also I'd very much prefer rollers, as the old one had bunks which brought launch and recovery challenges in anything except perfect conditions. There's no rush, (as Star Turn is going to get a bit of a tidy up this year) but if you know of a good trailer for sale, please let me know!

    Artifical reef off Training bank

    Yep, these are prototype research units that have been deployed. 3D printed in concrete to give structural strength but provide habitat for marine wildlife. They’ve put out a few units of different shapes/structures/habitats. Here’s a couple of pics which belong to Alice Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Artifical reef off Training bank

    This is Alice’s latest research project, an advancement on what she’s spoken to us about before where they are trying to design and enrich artificial structures so that they are better for marine wildlife. I might be able to get her to come and talk to us about it once the world returns to some form of normality... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    January Apologies

    Sorry guys, I’m not going to make it tonight. I was going to report that on Dec 17th 2019 the 2020 Bass Regs we’re agreed in Brussels. In 2020 the bag limit will be 2 fish, with the season running from 1st March to 30 November. As in previous years, this hasn’t been ratified yet, but once it has I’ll let you know.

    Junior Comp 10 or 11th August

    Was hoping to beg a ride out with my 2 (last year as a junior for Sam?) if anyone is feeling charitable, please? But, it's currently looking a bit blowy on Saturday. Depends whether it comes in earlier on Thurs/Fri, or ends up lasting all weekend I suppose? Sent from my SM-J530F using Tapatalk

    Poole Bay Oil Rig

    Regardless of whether you think the rig is good or bad, you might expect it to do what it is authorised to do. Well, it does whatever it likes apparently! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-dorset-47380239?SThisFB Sent from my SM-J530F using Tapatalk

    Under 10m fleet consultation

    Please consider responding to the consultation that DEFRA are running on bringing in a requirement for the under 10 metre commercial fleet to record their landings. As they currently don't have to, the MMO are unable to enforce their landing gear regulations. As a result, CEFAS estimate real landings to be 3 to 10 times the MMO figures. To respond, you will need to answer question 7 in the pdf by emailing catchrecording@marinemanagement.org.uk by the deadline of 1 April 2019. Pdf here: https://consult.defra.gov.uk/mmo/consultation-on-the-introduction-of-catch-recordin/

    Oil rig in the bay

    The problem is they quoted 6700 tons of chemicals initially. It’ll be at least double that now. So that’s 16 tons of biocide. It’s for bacterial control, but who knows what else it’ll affect? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
