Stitched up properly

Post by moodling »

I was meant to be going out on a charter trip that i had booked about 6 weeks ago this morning from Grimsby. When i phoned up the skipper to inform him that we would be a couple of minutes late due to traffic he told me that the trip had been cancelled last THURSDAY, and that he had not contacted me because he had THROWN away my mobile number. Does any one no of any reliable charter boats that are resonable price. I am travelling from north Nottinghamshire so its a fair way to go to be told its being cancelled. Wouldnt have been as bad if i wasnt on the out skirts of Grimsby.

Definatley not using him again. Wouldn't even refund the petrol money that i had spent getting up there, X( X( X(

not sure how you get from grimsby to brid in 20 mins as its about 60 miles but be carful in tourist areas as some skippers just take your money

The guys from nottingham to get to grimsby 1hr45mins to get to bridlington 2hrs11mins acording to my sat nav thats 21 mins.

I've used mick 3 times he works hard for his money we went out in december which ending up being a poor day 5 fish between 8 of us but give mick the credit he deserves he took us all over to put us on the fish he proberly didnt make much off us after his expenses.on that trip we had more fish that the other 4 boats that were out put together.

I'd like to add i won't recomened anything i don't/won't use myself.i don't think its fair for someone to waste there hard earned cash on rubbish

Cheers Dave

quite agree with you dave and i am sure its a good boat and skipper. im just makeing the point that there are a few skippers out there just ripping off tourists in the summer season.

Manic voiced the same concerns about 2 boats in particular that shall remain nameless for obvious reasons, but the practice does happen and its the newcomers that suffer. X( X(
