Thanks again to everyone for your kind comments..its appreciated
Cardo..the app is Mtracker..no longer available ..as it uses OS Landranger maps. The equivallent is now the OS map app itself..Memory Map..I have the whole of Scotland in OS map..so dont bother with charts..the fish finder tells me any depths I want
My boat box alone weighs slightly over 20kg .. and I cant dump any of it..its all important to me.
No need to spend extortionate amounts of money on waterproof boxes when my local council gives me ideal boxes for free.. well .. I am recycling my Seago Sib ..so it is justified ?
The golf trolley battery weighs half of that..but it lasts a week away from home..before needing recharged.
I have a bailer made from an old plastic oil container ..with a roller boat stuffed in it for storage. Air pump in case of leaks at sea ..anchor and anchor rope..and yup Poly..this one gets used regular..but I wait till its dry before storing again. Radio..PLB.. Fishfinder .. Transducer and transom mount.. gloves..sponge ..and rod holder.. oh .. and the mat stolen from my favourite bar..good for wiping fishy hands on.
It all fits nice and snug with plenty room for my lunch and Guinness gravy
And as I believe everything carried on a boat should have at least two uses.. when the lid is down..its strong enought to sit on..use as a bait table ..and holds the fishfinder and compass..easily detachable as they slide in and out ..so the lid is flat for transporting. I used old Seago PVC to skin all the surfaces on box and wooden floors that I made for the Guppy
I do have to lose weight though. I have been having some severe pains in the gut lately.. had an ultra sound at the start of the week..and found Im riddled with stones in both kidneys and gall bladder.. so I hope to easily match your 4.5 kg weight loss by shedding stones and winter blubber from my body.
Im heading for another adventure tomorrow.. and hopefully with a fishy ending this time ..the rod n reel is going with me this time ..and heading further north than Loch Goil
