I've considered adding some text around mine saying something along the lines of: 'Not to be used for mooring' or if I'm in a bad mood that day: 'Boats secured to this handle will be set adrift'.

Now where's that stencil paper and craft knife?

I'm thinking similar-laminated A4 sheet with a couple of pipe clips so it can be stowed.

'You are welcome to tie alongside using my bow eye and A-frame. Any lines found tied to grab handles or any tube fixture will be cut to prevent damage.'

We only travelled about half that distance, that will teach you for driving round in circles infront of the camera

I did wonder if he was lost outside Yarmouth-but it does make it easier working out who's who...Bright yellow rib accompanied by spinning blue rib=Nasher and Hightower

for those not their, a 7m harboat was recovering when we arrived back at Haslar. Having watched him winch the boat on then take it off because it wasn't straight we got involved and winched it on for him. His gf was struggling with the winch. Only after winching it on a second time he decided one roller wasn't straight so he undid it and launched it again. Nasher and I gave up at that point. Thankfully the slip is wide enough to get two boats out alongside each other.

We thought you did very well keeping up in those seas and running very well. You won't have had time to see but you have quite a bit of spray coming off the cavitation plate on the Tohatsu. If you have a mind to experiment you may find you can lift the engine a hole or two and gain a little flat water speed. We may have captured you on Andys video so you may be able to see for yourself.

Pete

hi

cheers pete i would love to see the video.

i was talking to andy h about a new prop today but he said about moving the engine first.
we also had a sticky trim button due to a new rubber cover so never used it on the way back.

Andy, it was more noticeable on the way out, to busy hanging on during the trip home. Your engine is bolted on using the top holes so could easily be moved up. Your engine trim looked okay and the boat was riding well, you just had in addition to the normal spray two water jets coming upwards off the cavitation plate at 30 degrees and hitting the end of the tubes. If you do move it you will have to trim in to do tight turns under power but gain a little top speed. Since this doesn't cost anything I think Andy is right to suggest doing this first.

Pete

I want to see how big Nashers anchor is, because the chain has 3" links

I didn't really get a good Video of the back of your Tohatsu Andy, I've just checked.

The problem you were explaining to me was of prop slip in a straight line and even worse going into corners with engine trimmed in, this would suggest you lower the Engine not raise it. Did you buy that prop?

Pete, the 3" links are for the plug hole, plug........He had to empty all that water
