"And it's all gone quiet over here!"

Everyone packed away? I know there are many 'best days still ahead' SIBbers on here but as a fair-weather-fairy I have to say I packed up the old Aerotec a couple of weeks back wanting to go out on a high.

Roll on Spring.

We're still wanting one more day at the coast but every day that's been suitable I've been doing stuff like building a pergola or a bedroom wall.

To extend our season a bit I've just bought a river licence as no more than 15mins from here there's a good slip with adj car park & toilet/wash facility. We can go up one way and swing round at the lock then motor down to the other extent where there's a no-frills eatery with moorings so you can keep an eye on the boat from the table.

I've just done a major service and leg re-spray on my 1980s Mariner 4 as that makes a perfect river outboard. 30yrs old and pretty well unburstable... the modern day Seagull I reckon.

Because it's so close to home with a warming midway lunch stop then as long as it's dry with some sun low temperatures aren't so much of an issue.

I am lucky enough to live about 2 1/2 minutes walk from the sea....!

I am also lucky enough to have been out sibbing today for about 3 hours, from Torquay.

Fenlander: once you have tried the 4hp on the sib, could you post up how you got on with it.

I have a 5hp 2 stroke that I have been thinking of trying on a sib.

Cheers.

I never argue with Pikey Dave, all the best on the solent. Have they found the bloke that went overboard yet? It wasn't me that made him jump honest!

All gone quiet

I have just found out about a very handy slipway that I am hoping to get access to over the next couple of months, even at low tide it is only a couple of hundred yards walk from the waters edge, all being well fishing off the North Devon coast this Sunday to try it out
