Lost Anchor & fishing gear, great day out in the Solent

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

That's a lot of pottering for 10l of fuel!

Good to see you, might leave the family behind and get out beyond the harbour tomorrow.

Iím thinking of going to the beach I met you on (East Head) to drop the wife & eldest daughter off (as she has managed to dislocate her knee cap!) So we can go out and have a play as anything over displacement seed is out for her! My Brother in law should be out in his boat too.
I was hoping to get round the IOW but weather not looking so good now!

We were fishing off my boat at anchor when my friend snagged his line. He had new feathers on, so didn't want to cut the line. He pulled so hard he snapped his rod. We cut the line, tried to bring in the anchor and it was stuck fast. It finally tripped, and we got it on board. The feathers were hooked around the anchor....

Sounds like a fab day out for so little fuel. It's whats tempted me back to sibbing!

I'd have been tempted to attach a float to it (fender or something simillar) and then return at low tide for another try or ask one of the big boys from here to give it a tug and see if it moves with 200HP pulling it in a different tide.

My Mrs is in Southend at the moment, if she stays over then I have a pass for the day!

What time are you planning on launching? I'll stick the camera on charge and figure out the feathers - if I can't make it then I'll let you know.

I did think of that, but on my sib the best I could muster was a very small coke bottle which was going to next to useless
