Did the usual and got it all clean and ready and then thought - nah too good to sell and it's just perfect for my mostly female crew. If the weather forecast is great on a long weekend I'll stick it in the water. Otherwise it will be occasional fun with the little Ribeye.
I shall look out for you round and about, just keep it serviced its not costing you anything, as you say too good to sell !!

Hello guys I am new in your community and my name is Marius

Planning to open 2017 fishing season and try Baiter slip in Poole harbour. I have Honda T38 + Yamaha 9.9 outboard. Little bit worried about leak of power coming back from sea to Poole harbour at low tide. Is it possible or I should even not think about it?
Any of you have experience coming back from sea to Poole harbour with "small" outboard? Asking because I've seen Christchurch entrance at low tide and current was very, very strong.

P.S. Sorry for my poor English. I hope you understand everything I wrote. Learning on the way

I've done it once before with a small engine (5hp) years ago with two people in a small sib.

I went though when the tide was dropping and safe to safe I wouldn't want to do it again! We made it but the engine had a good work out!

It'll be okay and other state of tide or when it's on the flood.
