Good post, this was the 2007 Ribnet trip filmed mainly going to Alderney.

We anchor a 5 tonne yacht with a 10kg Delta in Braye harbour and sleep soundly on board. Indeed we find anchoring more comfortable because the mooring buoys tend to get a back wash off the harbour wall that sets up a an uncomfortable motion.

We choose the area in the red circle normally because the big yachts can't get that close into the beach and its quite sheltered. There is a steep ridge that rising from 11m to 7m so the anchor goes onto the 7m bank.

Don't forget the dinghy to get ashore unless your doing a Bond 007 with the drysuit and tux underneath

I think I may have just chanced upon this years entertainment, to be provided by gotchiguy, but perhaps with a 250 HO rather than a 300

No need for me to do it, here's a video using the 3.3L block. No battery connected.

How's about you try it with your battery connected and the engine nice and warm...
