Boat owners register.

Post by tomcat » Wed Nov 12, 2008 1:40 pm

Having spoken to Chris' I am asking boat owners to register details on the site. Details such as vessel, area fished and experience would assist in building a knowledge base and allowing organised trips. Please include your details on this thread should you wish to be involved. A similar thread will be started for those without boats who would be interested in joining owners on fishing trips.

I've a 17 ft open boat in Holyhead and a mooring to go with it. Also have brilliant launch facilities. Here an offer - if anyone is willing to have a look at my engine they will be able to take the boat out whenever they want obviously free of charge. Tope fishing around Holyhead is second to none.

here is my wilson flyer (creations) i almost always fish off of littlehampton launch form the public ramp by the life boat station, went 11miles off yesterday to a big wreck the ore , fishing was great, boat records this year for me are 20lb conger eel 14lb thorback 12lb cod 14lb smooth hound 4lb pout 3lb wrass 3lb bream 2lb gurnard think that covers the interesting ones oh 2 n half pound macrel !!!! that was the most shocking to see, i normally head for kingmere rocks or black ledge 4miles off but now and then the calm sea makes the voices in my head to loud too cope with and i end up heading out over some of the many wrecks, thay are hard to pin point and i more often than not fail but the ones i have fished near and over have been worth the cris crossing of the area to find, its shocking how many fish ther are there you have to use big baits or you get hacked off with bringing up small pout and whiting !!! 40 in 2hours yesterday !!!!!

Here's Feenagh

Post by feenagh » Thu Dec 18, 2008 5:42 pm

Haven't been fishing for a while so took some pics on the drive. Feenagh is a 15 foot Seahog Shortie with 25HP Mercury(1992) and 4HP Yamaha(1980!). Both engines stored in garage when not in use. She has Garmin GPS and Fishfinder and Cobra VHF Radio. The boat was acquired in April this year and she has been used about ten times so far. This is my first boat and my only previous experience has been fishing on charter boats. I have completed the VHF radio course and intend to take the Powerboat 2 course next year. Fishing is mostly around Sheppey and into the Medway creeks so far but we intend to go further when we have more experience. The boat is equipped with the usual safety gear - oars, lifejackets, flares etc.Image

This is my first ever boat so with little boating experiance appart from going out on charters which doesnt count and going out on the boat before i bought it of a frie

Recently passed both the VHF radio And the Powerboat 2 course and planning on going one further with the intermediate.

She is a little seahog hunter with a 40 horse on the back and a 5hp aux, faster cruising speed to date was 24knots and handled like a dream with a bigger engine i think she could quite easily handle a little faster speed but 24 knots will do for me and is plenty fast enough until i gain more experiance.

i have some video footage somewere i will try dig it out and post it




cheers

I have had boats of alsorts of shapes and sizes for the past 20 years, and yet it was only 3 years ago I got my ICC, vhf tickets.

Here is my beloved Shetland 570, she is 5.7 m or 19ft in old money long.I have had for the past 4 years. I am based at AMBLE marina on the Northumberland coast although I do have a 4 wheel trailer for her, I never take her by road very far.

She is powered along by a 85HP Yamaha 2 stroke, or a 5HP Yamaha when the petrol prices are high.


I only live 2 miles from the marina, so come the summer months trips after work are frequent when the weather is good.

I fish for alsorts of fish in here, including a spot of sea spinning for Bass last year.
