    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
  4. 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.
  9. 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
  11. Hi, Frank Morris (Happy Hooker) has asked me to put up details of a complete Garmin navigation system as he is having pc issues.

The Plotter is a Garmin 4012 (cost £2,000 when new) and comes with a Furno radar again brand new and not used, not sure of model.

    Wessex AT Specimen Weights

    Just to update this, I have now produced a list of specimen fish going back to 2012 to end of June this year. The results are on two pages so at least you can read them without a magnifying glass. It is surprising that some of the higher numbers of fish caught are where people are saying they are scarce There are some obvious scarce species. Hope it is of interest to some Dave Specimen Records.pdf

    Wessex AT Specimen Weights

    Hi Stuie A discussion took place at the meeting and it was suggested that Tope be reduced by 5kg this was not my suggestion however many at the meeting agreed that you should have at least some chance of catching a 100% specimen but over the last 4.5yrs no one has caught a 100% Tope. To everyone I have updated Charlie's spreadsheet, which was published last year, on fish caught since 2015 to June this year, I have added 2018 + 6 months of this year (2019 figures on based on the 2019 specimen size list) If you look at this list against the Wessex Specimen list for 2019 you can make up your own minds. When you view the sheet it will be sideways, so if you look on the pdf menu you should see a heading View, click on this and a rotate menu comes up click on anti-clockwise and you should see it normally unless you want to print it out Specimen Fish caught.pdf
  14. In the Wessex area of the Angling Trust, Hampshire think that some of the specimen weights are unfair and would like some changes and maybe break away and have their own area of specimen weights. So we in the Dorset are have a golden opportunity to get any amendments to our area. It was suggested that we get Tope reduced to 40lbs from 45lbs if any club member has any other suggestions for change on any species I need to know before 18th July Also does anyone have any thoughts about Hampshire having their own area weights or should they stay with us? I have attached the current listing. Specimen Weights 2019.pdf
