Port Logan is one of my favourite haunts.
Hoping to get a day out there in the coming weeks before the mercury plummets.
Thanks mate I am pleased with it now, 3 things had to change the 25suzi is so frugal on fuel there was no need to have the spare fuel on the bow as before so that left a lot of room to use, I found having the anchor in the bow was hard to reach when I launched to keep the boat fast whilst getting the trailer back to the car park at port Logan plus the leg room for the fishing seat was too small so made the anchor rack 4 bolts and a top cut out so the anchor and buoy fit in retained by the rope and a strap, covered by a cargo bungee which goes down to the floor retaining extra kit if required.
that left tools/safety kit to re-site the rear seat site is too far forward for me and leg room short again in front of the console so I made a SS frame bolted the seat down which then gave room for the tools & safety kit perfect!.
i drive on the port side at speed partley on the tube but trolling I need a backrest so fitted the canoe seat that's spot on and for £23 a bargain.
because I am limited to a 3.5 m boat getting it down a passage way and swinging it into the garden, room in the boat is limited so getting the weight distribution & space has been crucial but I have cracked it now and the boat runs true, on the plane fast and at 1/4 throttle one up (big lad) 50 Lt of fuel usual kit with a slight chop 27 kmh what ever that is in knots.
We had never been up to port Logan and that part of the coast so got a cheep cottage for a week, we had great weather and some good food down in port Patric. Lots of lads going fishing out of port Logan what a nice place didn't get to see the cod pool across the bay though shut for winter I suppose.
Good choice on the wally by the way definitely right to wait and get exactly what you want.
Thanks for looking cheers Jeff
