I can't imagine anybody getting more fun n pleasure from a boat as I got from 'POTLUCK' now I hope to get as much from 'SUNDANCER' its just that she's taking a bit longer to get ready!!,

Paul, buy a WIlson Flyer with a half decent outboard and you will have about the best fishing platform in the world.

I catch far more fish from a beach than I do with my boat, I spend all my fishing time trying to find a good spot to fish.
This is how it played out for me yesterday with my boat.

Me and a mate thought we would jump on my boat and take her out, had plugs/lures/rag and a fish finder.
started out from St Denys (Near Northam bridge) plodding along dragging Dexter Wedges behind us, Fish Finder said 'No fish ... stop wasting your time)

Got down to the Itchen Bridge and decided to head off to Dock Head, Found the Queen Mary was parked in my spot ;)
Now this is where the fish finder does trigger but you can't drop anchor/tie up here, Crappy No Parking Zone.

So I head off out of the shipping lanes where I can stop, but the fish finder say's 'No Fish', I drop anchor anyway, fish for ages ... not a nibble.

Decide to pull up anchor and try somewhere else, now at this point the pattern always repeats itself, Fish Finder remains silent, Boats rolls around from the large waves caused by the big ships and high speed craft, still not a nibble.

Decide to head up towards Marchwood and give that a go, still nothing.
come to the conclusion that I should have tried for some flatties on the mud flats up by Kemps, so I head back to almost where I started from :((

Fish the tide as it's starting to run out ... Nothing but weed.

Decide to agree with my mate that it was a nice day to be out in the boat and make do with that and head back to the mooring, Although the idea was to catch fish and not bull$hit ourselves that it was about having a 'nice day out in a boat'

With that wasted time I could have caught far more by driving to maggy lane and saved masses of fuel.

For me I would prefer a solid beach, Plenty of space it never swings around when the wind changes direction has no running costs and holds masses of gear/seats/bbq etc, And doesn't need to be moved to a mooring and tied down (And never runs the risk of being stolen or sunk)

Boats ... over rated and expensive.

Pete.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the last post.
Its not just the cost of the boat, but the insurance , the fuel, trailering it to you launching site, launcing fees, plus all the saftey equipement which can set you back as much as the oridginal cost of the boat.

The way forward is to charter and let someone else have the headache.

I know from experience as I have 2 boats with tha larger on up for sale.
Cheers keith :D :D

not feeling particullary positive about boats at the mo then Pete, there are some great marks in the solent clearly marked on the chart + of course if you don't want to use a garage load of fuel tie up on the trotts on kemps bend, drop over the side an get some nice bass or if you spoon into the bay- flounder, now b**^$r off down to maggi lane and get the feelgood factor.
Tight lines mate,

Hey Pete, you catch more from your mooring than you do going out in your boat, you could have just got a pontoon =))

Hi Everyone... HLS (pete )mm see what you mean sort of ! lots of expense and not much to show for it except a fair size hole in your pocket.. your right keith but its not always about catching is it.. I have been out severall times and blanked, met a guy when i was down west bexington a while back he came all the way fron bristol and he told me he hoped to catch this time as he had blanked EIGHT times in a row (poor sod)
minimech (pete) i am seariously considering a wf if i can find one at the right price and place prefere mooring rather than launching mind you.
rabbi2 mmmm yes charter good but my work is very short notice when i have any so just wanted to jump in the boat and off i go and yes i know i will pay a very larg premium for the privilage..
and if i owned a mooring i would rent it out and fish from it too and pete can you get guest ticketts for kemps :D :D :D :D
