Apologies from newby

Good afternoon,

I found this forum extremely helpful and useful thank you to everyone who has helped me get kit and choose right sib motor,

I have returned a Honda ob and got a Suzuki, must say dealer I originally bought the Honda form was amazing , very helpful. I will be nominating them for a customer care award.

Yes Mrs a lawyer I am not a project manager so have I have no idea of doing anything just get credit for other folk doing a good job.

I did get heated at some comments from folk which I did over react , apology for this as I am a hot headed ex rugby player.

Once again thank you all for constructive help and wish all (including folk who pressed the right buttons) happy and safe sib/rib / boating etc

Cya

Fair play, stick around itís worth it. Thereís a lot of banter on here, much like youíd get in a rugby club. Youíll get used to it.

Don't take it to heart mate the pi$$ taking always starts this time of year I put it down to lack of boating over the winter months folks need a fix and vent frustration when chink in the armour of others is available to prod. You'll soon get the boat wet focus on that happy boating and don't forget the pics

Yeay we may get to see those pics after all!

Great to have you back Cumbria. To your credit you've had a great approach asking for info to make sure you get the right boat and engine. I failed miserably at this hurdle. You also realise the wisdom of getting the correct safety gear which could well save you and yours one day. A lot of people minimize risks for whatever reason. Apology further shows you're a modest guy.

Glad youíre on the right track now.

Itís a steep learning curve! But youíre getting there. I take it you got a Suzuki 20hp?

Hopefully weíll see you on one of the sib outings later this year.

Now we really need some legal clarification on Cumbria's sign off of "CYA".

My 20-something daughters would use this as a light hearted comment but with serious intent as "see-ya" but meaning actually I won't or don't want to see you again and I'm drawing a line under our contact. Used particularly where the person signing off that way is somewhat pleased with themselves and has no further interest in the other party.

Of course in the legal/business world it's used to mean "cover your arse" often in terms of a written document where you cover all points without accusing others of anything that could come back on you.

Or perhaps he's joined the Cumbrian Yachting Association for discounted slip fees.

Whichever I hope Cumbria gets on the water soon and they enjoy the outing.... but we do need to know.

Not applicable for the lakes but used Imray charts are available from £5 on EBay for the area of coast you may visit. Phone apps like Navionics are an alternative.

Can't recommend the RYA PB2 course highly enough either, this might be a big outlay if Mrs Cumbria joins you but look on it as an investment, part of your holiday.

In which case Iíd definitely get some training under your belt. Those places arenít for the inexperienced or faint hearted.

Can only agree with Dave you must first get to know your set up and build your expearence the places you mention can and will catch you out if not expearenced not to say don't go but dip your toes before diving in I know your eager to get started and that's great but don't let your enthusiasm push you into something you can't handle. There's some great threads on here of sibing adventures you will learn a lot from be safe and keep asking questions.

It's my long term goal. Going to get out on my local pond 1st.

Ulswater looks good , going to start there.


Ps what difference between a immersion suit and a dry suit .

Can i use either as immersons look a bit cheaper.

Thx

You could consider a two piece wetsuit either 2mm or 5mm worn under clothing. Should be fairly easy to go for a pee.

Watching Gurnards videos would also be very useful and informative.

Unless your intending to get very, very wet then a wetsuit won't work that efficiently at keeping you warm, there are more favourable options - better explained on google than I could

'Wetsuits Keep You Dry

This is one that a surprising number of people believe to be true. Wetsuits are designed to let water in, then keep that water in, letting your body heat it up and thus keeping you warm. Dry suits keep you warm and dry, wetsuits keep you warm and wet. After all, they are called wetsuits!'
