knot yets, i may have a temparary solution for you, i live in swanwick about 500yds from a couple of slips i also have a 2 acre garden, you could leave it here and launch at one of the slips nearby, i launch at riverside boatyard, you'll have to pay there but it's a good slip it's about half hours up the hamble but it will give your engine time to either work or break down before you get to open water, it would be unfair to say this would be permanent but the offer is there until you get your routine working right, and no to anybody else who's thinking of posting, they are new and need some guidance, no pressure!

Bloody good idea biff, better to break down in the hamble than the solent.

Edit: Mind you, I think one of the reasons for the choice of boat was the freedom to trailer all over the place and explore places like Chi Harbour and Swanage (just to name two out edges of Solenty goodness).

Biffer - thank you - that's a really kind offer, totally unexpected and much appreciated will send you a PM

Oops can't send you a PM - Biffer could you pm me your email address or telephone number - many thanks

Thanks for all the responses regarding the fixing of the aux - having it sat on the A frame seems a good option - I'm still undecided as to the merits of carrying an aux but having read through all responses again we have nothing to loose by trying it out

biff, nice offer (KY - take it up, just don't park under a tree at wrong time of year without a cover like I did!)

and I might be out Sunday if you are out and want some company...

regarding the aux, I fitted one, but it almost got me into big trouble... bracket broke and nearly lost the aux, luckily was hanging on by a strap to rear seat handle, meaning I had to single handedly (was out alone at the time) unbolt part of the bracket the aux was locked to, whilst holding it in the right place, and in a big solent chop. So, if you go the bracket route, I suggest you have one specially made, or else buy one that's bolted together, not welded.

Don't park under a tree at any time. A buddy of mine parked his rib under a tree and the wind blew a large branch off and trashed his toob, transom and toob carrier. bummer
