I also bought a tarp from a army surplus place in Denby. Think it was about 100 but it was about 9mts square and takes two people to lift . cut mine in half and still easily covers the rib. I know someone who has had one for 8 years and still as good as new . Only good for the winter as it's to heavy to take on and off every weekend.

Must admit that simple launch has me hooked for sure,, Chris, can not do enough for any one,,,,,
Don't know the farm in question but heard there as helpful, as for cruising. Not seen better my self , good trek for me but well worth it,

I've seen sooooo many swimming pool boats You'll have to address security issues - I'd talk to the insurance company.
Excellent advice. Is that,,,,

Also seen many boats full of water due to lack of thought on storage,,
towed a humber from looe once,, took bung out at home feck me the hull was to the brim,, thought it was heavy lol Ventilation is defo the key , open every thing if you can and put broom handle in the sock so it stays open

Typical - Moved Beretta to an outside storage location last weekend and now the weather has been crap since, and ive just had this notification through....

Risk of further torrential downpours and thunderstorms tomorrow.
We see a continued risk of storms and torrential downpours developing across many areas tomorrow. The areas at greatest risk are Wales, West Midlands, North West England, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The torrential downpours will reach North Yorkshire and Northern parts of England later tomorrow afternoon.
