That's a nice selection of local trips...

But if you're trying to make a point about seasonality, you appear to have missed the first line of my thread...

So is the mooring actually not viable during the winter or is it just restrictive policy terms.
When I told my insurers I wanted to use the boat all year round, "no laid-up period" it wasn't a problem and there was no extra cost. Probably wouldn't cover a swinging mooring though unless it was "in use"

Dolphins... yep but they weren't playing. Swam under the boat a couple of times but not being much more fun than porpoise.

A bit of both. Hopefully getting a month's extension in 2017. The willkcraft is a shade on the big side for casual trailering for a quick splash in the winter.
