    Good planning. They won't get many boats from Cobbs Quay, the Twin Sails will be in the down position from 0700 on Friday 6th until 0600 on Wednesday 11th.

    From Dorset Harbour Security Watch

    Not yet, but he said he probably will join.
  5. I received this from Brad who runs DHSW. Date for your diary. 16th of December. Blue bird social club. I have been sponsored the hire of the social club in the hope off getting as many people from the boating community to attend as possible. The idea behind this is to start to break down barriers, the evening will be a fun relaxed environment where I intend to have as many people there as possible from all walks of the boat world from Dorset. It would be a pleasure to have you guys there. More info will be sent ASAP. Thanks. Have a great weekend. Assistance with inviting people would be great. We have to name a few the Christchurch and Poole mvs, hengistbury head nci, Boaty Bits, Dorset Marine training have been invited so far. It's a totally mad idea but I think it will be fun and also useful to many. I'll be honest this has been spurred from your request on a brief talk, of which I am organising. Thanks again.

    New prop anyone?

    I used to have a boat on a Jetty above the bridge at Wareham, it had a raw water cooled on-board, I kept that afloat every winter and never had problems.

    Ais issue

    I would always go for separate antennas, every connection reduces the signal strength.

    Hi Nigel That would be great, thanks for the offer. Where is your boat, and when would be convenient?

    Is my boat safe to fish out of the harbour

    Hi James Can I suggest you join the Club. Lots of experience and knowledge that members are willing to share. We can arrange various training courses (RYA Level 2, VHF Radio etc). There's always the opportunity to fish in company with other club boats.

    That's my next move.

    I've looked at various makes, but keep coming back to the Arvor.

    My Warrior is 5m, I have to pay their minimum charge which is 6m, I just scrape in (by not quite raising the engine fully when they measured).
