Thanks Guys.....

You know how sometimes you make a decision on impulse...... Problem I have found is that things dont hang araound for long......so be decisive!!!

Now I am sure, based on what some of you have commented about the tidal thames, I may have made a mistake, but if so, I will sell it on and try something else....but, for the time being......

I have just purchased a 2007 Walker Bay Genesis 3.1m, with a 2007 Mariner 15hp 2 stroke, (both hardly used), and trailer, for 1800.

Martin , Have a look at the boatlaunch website for some sheltered start points such as two tree island or even the Wat Tyler Country Park . I'm sure you haven't made a mistake , just go carefully , use your loaf and make sure everyone has a decent life jacket & warm kit . Please do think about the training though ! Bern .

Sounds fine to me - I have a 3.1m with a 15hp 4 stroke and have crossed 25 miles of open sea on a nice day - and back again of course!!!

Is it hypalon or PVC - I see they do both.

And get some proper transom wheels unless you use the trailer all the time.
