Rumoured and very true, you can see it from further than that round the East Sussex Coast but like Dover you need to be a bl**dy sight higher than sat on the tube of a ten foot long rubber boat!!

funny replies.

So, A mile out seems to be as far as it gets on these rubber dinghy which is more than ample. All I need is an engine and Radio and I'll be off (Oh and nice weather)

I go about 5 miles out on a very calm day in my 3.2 sib, but I must admit I dont like the feeling of vunerability, there are usually a few boats working on the wind farms near me, and I do stay in contact with local charter boats (fishing trips) and most of my fishing is done within two miles of the beach
