Our first trip on our SIB

Thanks to all who have offered me advice recently.

Had our first trip today and what a belting day it was!!

Both really enjoyed it and all went well, even managed to catch a fish all be it only a Mackerel.

Check out a Vid I took on youtube search for Puttyuk and its in there.

Cheers

Thanks guys we had a great trip.

Question - I noticed the bottom of the boat had a couple of scrapes on it, nothing serious but scuffs never the less.

I took it to the waters edge and launched it stern first with OB attatched then we jumped in and were off. I think it may have got scraped here just at the base of the transom.

I am planning on getting some pneumatic wheel for it similar to these

So hopefully this will stop any further scrapes.

Also it is damn heavy, dont think I could manage it by myself, unless I get the wheels of course.

Any pointers would be welcomed.

Cheers

Putty
