Honwave 3.8 so far


Not been much waves for surfing this summer up my way so have been getting plenty use out of my Honwave 3.7m.

Finding it pritty good for fishing from with 2 or 3 people in it. Found a good zone for Cod a couple miles from local slip. Boat sits pritty stable in choppy seas for it,s size.Being pritty light Drifts pritty fast with the wind but that helps the fishing sometimes.

Once i had cleaned all the blood and guts from it the wife agreed to come exploreing some of the islands of the north coast one calm day. Got a classic video clip of her having a wee panic when we got surrounded by a load of dolphins. Will try and get a link to it.

Had good 30knot northely wind one day so put the wetsuits on and took the boat out at one of the surf beaches to see how it would handle and get a bit of a practice launching and landing in the surf. Did pritty well and good practice in case i get caught out in bad weather one day.

Attached a couple of pics
