The guy I got my 165 from also had a 175 in. Great looking boat but a little out of my price range. Can't comment on the sea going properties as I've never been out on one but would think that it would be excellent going on what I've read up on them. The build quality was excellent and there's quite...

Well, she's arrived!!! A delightful Warrior 165, one careful owner, built 2005, 75 hp Honda engine with 64 hours on the clock and a nice little log book to go with it. Unfortunately the weather is rather less than clement so apart from a quick shufty under the cover not done much else. Will post som...

West Wales

Had a look at the suggested marks in the Wales forum but it appears that no one ventures much past St Davids. Have just purchased a boat and will be using it out of Gwbert in Ceredigion. Any one have any suggestions about that part of the Welsh coast? Any info on shore marks would be greatly appreci...

Viewed both a Raider and Warrior 165 this morning. Perhaps the Raider was a poor example but far more impressed by the Warrior 165. Looked at a Warrior 175 but that was a little too far outside of our price range.

Once again, thanks for the info TC. I might stck to normal "drop over the side" methods until I get used to it. Done some fishing off charter boats in the past.

We're looking at a Raider 18 Fisherman. There's a few around at a reasonable price so in we'll be putting in a few miles looking at them.

Thanks for the excellent replies gents. Much appreciated. What terminal tackle would you recommend? Would you use a fixed paternoster type rig ir a running rig and I assume that the weight of lead depends on the strength of the tide. One last question: Can I use my beach caster to uptide from what I...

Up tiding

Hi all I'm new to boat fishing (so new in fact that I haven't got the boat yet, still looking!!) but was wondering about using the up tiding method. Seen it used on various TV progs and mentioned in the mags. I've got an idea as to how it works but can't for the life of me work out how bite indicati...
