newbie from sunny south wales

hi everyone, just purchased a sib 3.2 metre and i have an small tohatsu 3.5 hp to run it for now. looking to out somewhere, maybe mumbles but i have lots to learn first. i understand about all the safety gear vhf, lifejackets ect but would like to know best times to go out. i understand ill at some point need a bigger motor but dont want to go out and not get back after tide if its on its way out. would you go out after low water and come back just after high tide before she turns?

Welcome, loads of info on this forum for you. You can't beat Milford haven for learning. Calm and sheltered in most wind directions, lots to see and good fishing. Just be aware of the shipping lane. Good luck.

Hey Plotter welcome to the forum,
Thats a nice size sib you got there, can't offer much advice on your area though as I've never boated there, visited loads though, and have heard of strong currents of the Bay, which you may struggle to push with your 3.5, not saying you will, but probably best not to head to far out untill you familiarize yourself with your craft.
Happy Sibbing

Hi again. I launch at gelliswick bay( look on google maps) . Long slip, plenty of free parking. As for tides, the slip is covered for most of the tide except on big tides when it comes off the bottom of the slip. But with a small sib and two people you can come and go as you please. I launch there whenever the wind is too strong to get out to the open sea. The haven is a great place to go through the learning curve. Don't know if your interested in fishing but there are plenty of deep reefs for pollock and weedy bays for bass. Happy boating

Hi plotter,

Have you given up on the sewin then !

I did and went back to sea fishing, I fish the Haven quite a bit.

Haven is a great place.

Gelliswick is very good and free, Hakin point, free slip, Hobbs, busy. Neyland yacht club.

Plenty other places too.

Bill

I didn't even bother last year, only went after brownies and sea fishing.

Was going to buy a SIB couple of years ago, might still do, but had a health scare with the big C which took priority! needed treatment and time, hopefully all ok now.
Anyway good luck with the SIB, if you need some specific info on launching, marks just ask or pm me.

In addition to the other places already mentioned, East Llanion is good for launching a SIB and relatively quick & easy to get to from Carms.
