Bought an engine, now to think about a boat
We holiday in the south west at least once or twice per year so it would be used then mainly. We tend to stick to St Ives or Padstow or thereabouts but I'm rather keen to get exploring some of the estuaries on the south coast more, such as the Roseland/St Mawes, Salcombe and the like.
In the past we used to beach launch but I dare say these days I'd probably need to concentrate on using local harbours and slips instead. I spoke to the harbour master in St Ives in July and he quoted £97 for a visitor berth and unlimited launching for a week, which I thought wasn't too bad.
Meant to add, there's normally 3 adults and 2 little kids but often we'd just be me and my grown up son using it.
