nice to meet up with you steve
it was fun trying to find you when you said you was only 3 miles out lol but anyway got there in the end,

the picture steve has uploaded was what i thought to be a bloody big fish but turned out to be a large crab and fair sized pout


as steve says loads and loads of pout,we left about half hour after steve after getting more and more put till eventually we got bored with them ,

just to let you know buddy we had tocut the anchor away after what seemed like an eternity trying
will meet up again soon

Hi Witbydiver,
The boat belongs to Hammyloz, I was taking the picture from mine. :D :D Not sure where he got it from.

For the safety question, there is loads of advise out there but here are some of the basics (some of which I'm sure you have).

1) Life jaket (not boyance aid)
2) Good anchor and loads of rope.(you will always find use for rope)
3) Vhf handheld (good for hearing what moving about the harbour, and the obvious call for help fuction)
4) Mobile phone.
5) Use you Motor kill switch cord.


6) And lastly your Jesus shoes for walking on water....(also helps in taking pictures of your own boat) :D :D :D :D

Tightline guys !
