That explains a lot!

I'd definitely plug the hull on your boat. the engine is heavy and that will lower the height between the transom cutout and the water. The flooding hull lowers it even more. Meaning wash can get over it easy. bit of wash boat give boat a bit of water inside, bit more wash bit more water splish splosh boat full. Bilkge pump will work until battery runs out . Electrics under Water fuel filter under water urrgghhh. been there done it threw away the tshirt. Also if you are going to rely on a bilge pump to drain the boat best buy a non stealable Solar Panel.

Does the sea fishing club still launch with a tractor across the beach? might be worth a chat with them.

Which is the other slip you mentioned btw?

If you do keep her on the water then you need to do something with the flooding hull, even a flap to keep the light out. If weed and soft corals start growing in there you will never be able to clean them out and it will stink when you lift it out of the water. We used to pass a 4m Avon in Strangford which lived on a mooring. The owner lived on board and this was his tender. There was a forest growing inside his hull, yuk.

Ah a Sandgrounder, oh dear I grew up in lathom near Ormskirk but married a Southport girl
Cars have very limited access now, in fact they've just cornered off a small carpark on the beach. You can't even take your dog on there! You have to walk them over the dunes for half a mile and then go onto the beach.
Ainsdale fishing club still launch off the beach using tractors and I have looked into joining. Think it was 110 a year but only runs in season and have been told there's arguments each week who'll drive the tractor. Not really my scene.
The slip I'm using now is in Frecklton not far from Preston and right under the flight path for BAE Warton. Scares the crap out of you when a euro fighter fly's low over you.

I've decided I'm going to keep her on the mooring. I'm off to the UCL heart hospital one day this week which will feck me up all week. So week after next I'm gonna block the hull up using what MikeCC already had in place (MikeCC, be good to hear any input on this mate) and then anti foul.

Off the top of your head Stu, do you know where the water line is on 5.4's with out the flooding hull? And do you need to anitfoul the tubes?

Tony heart moment, please draw the water line on the image below and send it back into our gallery where we'll have a little brown plastacine man take the p!ss out of it

One litre of Seajet coastal should be enough for 3 coats.
Seajet recommend one coat but I stuck a few on my fishing boat last year and it had a growth at all.

This year I'm using International Ultra for the simple reason seajet don't do the Coastal in grey.
