    Where to keep my boat?

    As a compromise have you considered Lymington or Bucklers Hard ? I know Rockley are looking to enlarge their caravan site plus other work around the boat yard which might have an impact for access when it goes ahead.

    Take all your lifejackets off the boat and keep them at home in a dry environment. They tend to go off on their own during these damp evenings and mornings

    Small Boat Rescue Platform

    Greg, after 9yrs I would suspect it would be better to replace the platform. The cost of a replacement is considerably less than a lift raft but I accept that if you travelled well offshore a life raft will probably be better in life saving terms than the platform. Personally, I would suggest the platform is better suited to inshore recovery/lifesaving. Similarly after 10yrs it is recommended to buy a new lifejacket, all material deteriorates over time and will not have the same designed properties as when it was new. Your life could depend on that product would you trust anything as life supporting that's over 10yrs old?

    Your Lifejacket

    I think this says everything
  8. Following Greg's comment in a previous thread I came across this product which looks great for the small boat owner and getting a man overboard back into the boat. Seems it only wants servicing every 3 years https://www.seagoyachting.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/RP500-RP500-Plus-manual.pdf to see a video at the RNLI training centre go to this site and click on video https://www.piratescave.co.uk/seago-rescue-platform-rp500.html?id=153583781&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI8P3HnYn35AIVTLDtCh298QuVEAQYBCABEgKawvD_BwE

    Kenzaki problem

    Mick, give this guy a call Contact details are Gary Allner on 07944101577 Lives in Wallisdown He replaced a reel seat on one of my rods a year ago and it was a super job and very reasonable. I think he does rod repairs from the local shops so could be the guy others have mentioned.
  13. Give Frank a call Neil, I am only the message boy

    Saturday numbers

    As a starting point I would suggest looking at the chart/plotter for the 100ft contour from St. Catherine's point Westward Don't forget that drawing a line from St Catherine's through the Isle of Wight to West Cowes/Southampton anything westward is in club waters for records & comps etc. Dave
