Well I had a great day out Friday sibbing put the Bombard in at Broadmarsh Slipway near Brockhampton, not used this before worked for me but, I recon you want 3+metres of water and do not think I would use it for the Rib!
Went out of Langstone Harbour thought I would try a bit of fishing, put the fethers over the side only to see them disappear in to the depths!! Must remember to check they are firmly fixed to the line next time!
So off for a potter went over to the forts & on to Seaview & then in to Bembridge where I bought some more hooks & weight. Went back out to No mans fort to have anther go, thought I would put the anchor down & have a bite to eat at the same time.
Well had a bite to eat but no bites from the fish so thought I would move and try anther spot, but no way was this anchor coming up with me! After my best efforts I had to cut it loose (maybe I will start to rig my anchors with a trip?) Tried some more drifting & fishing but nothing. So started to make my way back to Langstone and by now the wind has picked up but is behind me so have fun riding the waves. Went back up to the slip to see it at low tide & not a good option with thick black smelly mud, so went off to Chichester harbour & down to East Head beech. The difference in the Langston & Chichester is stark with very little traffic & moorings in Langston compared to Chichester. Bumped in to Thomas on the beech at East head, had a chat & then bact to recover the boat & off home after a great day out on the water only using about 10lt of fuel
