Thanks Andy.....To be honest mate I'm really only out to give the boat a blast.
 
A few dogs will keep me happy this this morning though.

I was drifting around just outside Chichester Harbour yesterday and had a few mackerel, a dog, a pollock, a gurnard and a nice bass. It was very choppy and windy, the fish stopped biting at high tide and didn't start again before I called it a day.

I got out to church rocks.....was a bit lumpy and my little girl, whos seven, decided it was more than she liked......so back we came.
 
Ended up in Chi harbour for a few hours rattling out tiny bass until high water when it just suddenly went dead. Was well chuffed with the boat and done what I set out to this morning.

Hi Ady,
    I wondered if you were out. I nipped out, not so much for fishing (Only brought one mackerel and some lures), but for some rough weather experience. It seemed to flatten out once the tide changed - just shows what a difference tide and wind direction makes).

I drifted around by No Mans Land fort - no fishes, but still had a good couple of hours out with my dad.

I also had him do nothing so I can practice mooring etc. single handed.

Cracking boats aren't they?

Fished the Hambl last night.   Plent of school bass around 1lb but fishing made difficult with loads of week and hungry crabs.  It needs a frost to kill the weed & deter the crabs.

Hi Sean,
 
My boat is a lot smaller than yours but still great things aren't they. On the whole I'm pretty pleased with her and she handled the sloppy stuff really well. Coming out of Chi Harbour is always heart stopping in a strong easterly as the tide gathers pace and breaks over Chichester bar, you have no option but to take it beam on. She rolled around a little but I didnt feel that she would go over at any time.
 
I slowed right down on the way down to Church rocks with a big following sea. She seems a little unhappy in those circumstances but you have to remember she is actually a lot smaller than she feels. I've been on bigger boats that react badly when they take it up the chuff too so I'm not too worried. With a little throttle she'll stay ahead of the sea with hardly any surfing.
 
I ploughed back into the waves coming home a little faster than I would normally in those conditions just to see how well she done and have no complaints. She smashed through at around 14 knots and we took a few over the bow and up over the screen but she didnt grumble at all. 
 
The only slightly irritating grumble I have is that she lists to port when a third crew stands in the wheelhouse right against the portside. Because the helm is only just on the starboard side of the centreline you have to ensure any passengers are evenly distributed around this line otherwise the ride is a little uncomfortable. The upside of having the helm in this position is it makes her nice and stable when on your own.
 
I would have to say that as a small angling boat she is spot on.
