Covering the Propellor = serious post.

(It was a dressing gown sleeve. Pay attention Rich!!! And I've told you before I don't know where he got it. But we're respectable these days as some very kind NWRibsters gave us an orange bag. It might've been for my head but we're now using it for the prop. Which brings us back on track here!!!!!!Don't forget a bag for the prop (or a dressing gown sleeve in neon shades if you're stuck!!!!!)
Missus (bang go the green spots now ))

Can you wait till you've done the radio course before buying the radio Tim? As the instructor (s) should be up-to-date on the latest everything...

Did you buy any of the boat yourselves?? Where did the engine and hull come from... I now know where the prop bag and the ropes came from... I'm getting suspicious about the rest of it

Hi Tim
if you are doing a vhf course it will include DSC , look around on the threads and buy the best vhf dsc you can, sometimes its better to bite the bullet and pay for a bona fide radio remember it can save your life , if you get into trouble,and would be a shame if you bought the too good to be true bargain
that packs up as soon as you need it.(ps how was your trip to the ISLE DE BLANC did you get past customs ok)
regards tim

I havn't been the Isle yet (end of this month). I did find somewhere to stay in the end though: The Lake hotel in Ventnor (I think). Apparently the owner has/had a RIB so will let me keep it there overnight.

I found a DSC radio for about 180. It's a NASA. Looks OK, so I think I'll go with that.

Just out of interest Tim, do you run an RYA Radio Course? If so, how much do you charge?

Right.
I think I'll stick with mine anyway - it's only five minutes down the road. The only problem is the guy couldn't give me an exact date - he says when it gets booked up (6 people) he will run the course!

Someone's got to be able to do better than that for you...there are so many centres...
If you're really stuck we can recommend our instructor (he's probably in therapy tho')
