Well it's only 20 NM from the marina to Yarmouth. At 30kts (currently achievable as an average with, as you say, no speed limit in Poole Harbour save past the chain ferry), that's 40mins for the full journey. With Christchurch being pretty much half way, that's 20mins: 30mins gives time for delays etc

Let's hope next Sunday's weather is like today!

If I can get some crew to come along, I intend to bring the Parker round to give her a run and collect some fuel.
I dont know about "todays" weather, the bay is a bit lumpy, nothing our boats can push aside, but maybe a little interesting for some!

I had just come back for a morning walk with the dog on the beach when I made the "If the weather is like today" comment. It was very flat then. Just noticed it has blown up to a F5, which is not so good.

Forecast (Wind Guru) is currenlty for a Northerly F4 and droping to F2 while we are out (Usually goes the other way) hopefully (everything crossed) it will be OK.

You should be OK in just about anything in the Parker if I'm thinking of the right boat!

not too bad in the solent today, but it did start picking up a bit wind wise after 1pm, as did the waves; following a few near vertical take offs, I decided it was time to head back. Nice to have some sunshine though and blast the post new year cobwebs away without being freezing cold

Here's hoping next Sunday is pleasant

No idea what force it was like by the time i came in at 4 but the waves seemed bigger than my boat. Was nice up until 3, the searider had a reluctance to keep it's prop in the water though... following that the nose has a tendency to dig in and give me a shower every 20 seconds…other than that was a great day out!
At least lymington is very close to yarmouth, I should be able to make it whatever the weather.

Let me know numbers in the next couple of days (I need to phone The Wheatsheaf on Sun morn). Is Sea Safari in Poole or Southampton at the moment? (I've not been to Poole Quay to look recently!).

The more the merrier from Poole (and am trying to persuade a couple of others)!

If the weather is like today it will be perfect.
mmm last time I went to Yarmouth it took me an hour from Poole harbour - was pretty rough though..
Not sure I could keep up with a Suzi 250 & Verado 275

If it's rough, we'll set off a bit earlier to give ourselves a bit more time - but either way don't worry: we'll wait for you! We can't get back into the marina until after 4.30 so there's plenty of time. Are you planning on launching at RMYC?

Happy to add (that means 1 + 1 presumably!): assume one boat; but where are you coming from?

Just finished re wiring the boat and thought i'd quickly start the engine to check it's all working ok, turn the key and i get a grinding type sound. the external gears I can see that connect to the flywheel? don't turn on the starter motor and the noise appears to be coming from inside. is this fixable or will I need the whole unit replaced? any ideas on cost?

move that post to the engine section, more likely to be viewed by someone who might know.


are you sure you wired it back up the same way? it worked before.

What whole unit do you think you might need to replace? I think that's possibly jumping to conclusions, but you need to explain the problem a bit more first, maybe post a pic showing where the grinding is coming from, describe a bit more fully etc. Or take it in for someone to look at it, but that might be an unnecessary expense.

An outboard I had in the past would not start when turned the key, purely because the starter motor bracket had come unwelded from the starter motor itself, so the teeth kept slipping out and would not turn the flywheel. Took it off, into an exhaust garage, a quick weld and was all fixed for £10.

Curious. Not wishing to be cruel, but you have just been working on the boat, "re-wiring". What else have you done? Think back, the most trivial thing could help diagnose the problem.
The re-wiring, are you sure that you have connected what was connected before? Particularly the battery to starter motor leads, have you used the correct grade of wire (thickness)?
Fair play, not many 15 year olds would tackle a re-wiring job, it is easy to get wrong! Pictures of what you have done would be good. Where are you based?

Ah! Was it you that I was sat next to at the Jolly to the Folly? No problem with the number of boats but let me know the final number of people when you can in order to help the pub cater and arrange tables. I leave you to liaise with the Southampton boats to meet up off Cowes if you're so minded.
