True, i've never had to think about fuel consumption before.

I'm sure you do, Andy :P

it takes 3 or 4 people to launch and recover my boat at any tide, they aren't that heavy.


and lewis, when its warmer and i can bare to stand and fix my engine i will tale you out on my boat it you want to let you see what they are like.

that was my point though - its probably not something you can do single handed (without a car) - I just wanted to check the OP was aware of this limitation compared to his lightweight dinghy.

Not too bad, there's usually help around. You've managed anyway.

That'd be great, thanks. If you're needing any help let me know. I live like five minutes away.

I understand what you're getting at but it's cool, i don't think there's much of a problem at the club. There's plenty of options, and if all else fails, i'll just borrow a car

Seems the threads alive again, so i though i'd let you know that i'm in pretty much the same position as last post.

I'm getting closer to having enough money to start seriously looking at buying. Aiming for buying in early spring.

I'll keep you posted

I launch single handed, even with a bunked trailer on a decent slipway drive on drive off with barely any winching - and I only get the rubber wet on the tyres

You do have the benefit of a nice steep slip though, which makes all the difference.
