  1. Good report but... who tries to enter a fish into a weigh and release comp without weighing it?? 🤣🤣
  2. Yep. Not jealous at all... 😬🤣 Good luck and keep us posted 👍
  3. Lovely fish! Well done. 👍
  4. Afraid the VAT does apply for second hand boats. I had to pay the VAT (usual rate) when I bought mine in Jersey.
  5. Yes, that's the ideal outcome, but what are the chances of finding one in the right place at just the right time? Safer to budget for both journeys and if they find a way to split the cost with another delivery then so much the better.
  6. One option may be to find a haulage company to bring it back on a low-loader. Certainly less stressful than driving all the way down to Spain and trailing it back yourself, and once you factor out your own time, fuel and selling on the trailer at the UK end, a haulier may be a worthwhile investment. The broker will likely have experience of hauliers collecting/delivering boats and may be able to recommend one for you.
  7. Yep, I'm inclined to agree. Whilst I don't approve of dumping at sea (which, let's face it, is what they're doing) I do applaud their intent.
  8. @jerry.shutter, as @plaicematsays, 29th March is when the requirement to stay local goes away, so that's when I'll be heading back down to my boat (I live 90 mins away from the marina). To say I'm gagging for it is an understatement! 😉

    Secure?

    Very good Brian! Stick it on Outlaws too - they'll get a chuckle out of that one.
  10. This is exactly how I run my units. The lower unit is the chart plotter, the upper unit is the FF. I share depth data from the FF unit to the Plotter unit so I can see the depth reading simultaneously on both screens. Another advantage of having two identical units is that if one should ever break whilst I'm out, I can easily switch the chart card or transducer cable into the other unit and still salvage the rest of the day and get home safely.
  11. I've not used the wifi connectivity on the Ti2's but before you buy seek out some feedback from those who have. You may find that sharing chart card and transducer data over wifi results in lagging between the two units. This is occasionally evident on Ethernet connected units, so I can only presume that it will be the same if not worse for wifi connections. After all, you're passing a lot of data between two units and you'll want the connection to be as good as possible. Do the Ti2's have a yellow ethernet connection on the back? I'd use this if so as the ethernet cables are quite cheap.
  12. I got the same reply Terry. It sounded like a series of tenuously related paragraphs that were copy & pasted from elsewhere in the hope that they could baffle me with bullsh*t. Like you I don't feel they're committing to any concrete action on super-trawlers.
  13. Another vote for adjustable brackets here. I have a flush mounted unit that is harder to see (wrong angle) than the two bracket mounted units, which I have angled to suit my height. I also find that it's easier to flick my eyes between the bracket units and the horizon, whereas my whole head has to look down to see the flush mounted unit.
  14. Fishing is now allowed. https://anglingtrust.net/covid-19/
