I can be out all day and not see any boats after I leave the harbour

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

Even in the Solent mid week during the winter months you can pretty well much get the place to yourself. I find this strange as their are literally thousands of nice boats moored up in marinas that never seem to go anywhere.

Yes the sea can be quite lonely even when you are in a busy area I suppose. When we came back from Guernsey we only saw about 3 or 4 boats all the way back. And that was a lovely day in late June.
