Fantastic video with a lovely narration. Thanks for sharing.

When I saw the title I was expecting you to go around Penzance to 'St. Just'! Then I realised you meant St. Just in Roseland

Thanks FoxZulu, I was really unsure about adding any narration. I was conscious of how I sound and if I blab on to much, so it's nice to know it's appreciated.

I really enjoy putting them together Brian. It recaps the trips, in my mind it highlights the good bits and cuts out the crap!

No, you absolutely nailed it. Very easy to listen to and really made the video, and you have a lovely speaking voice. Not sure that I'd have the nerve to try it myself though

I remember when Donny took the step from subtitles to narration it really brought his video's to life

If you've not been before David, I think you would really like the place.
So easy to launch at Mylor at nearly all states of tide, especially if you use the floating pontoon. Great estuary and rivers to explore (I've got a vid of the Fal & Truro to do when I get round to it) if the sea isn't playing ball but easy access if it is. We went to the Helford River (no video as I forgot to charge my phone!) and that was a really nice long day on the sea.

Thanks Jeff, I think those cottages would tempt me next time we are down that way.

Hi HH, pleased you liked the video.

I don't even notice the new engine mounts on the OB unless I think about it, so they must be working as they should. The only thing I have noticed is when I open up the throttle, the prop and leg don't now want to dissappear under the transom!
The redesigned keelboard makes a big difference and is far better than I could have hoped. It has stopped the airdeck flexing as much as it did, but the biggest difference is the way Redneck handles. Sharper, more solid in turns, cuts through chop much better, and has improved wot speed.

Came back from Cornwall a few weeks ago now, just haven't had time to edit & post the videos. Got another vid to finish, hopefully before I go to Anglesey - "it's a hard life, but someone's got to live it"

Hmmm... we may all end up in a row down there next summer. They are the most sibbing suitable place I've found to stay in the whole of the south so far.

Your right David we had the rib on the pontoon for the week, back from trips we tied up called in the restaurant food and beers then bed and the same each day proper relaxing week. Slipways a dream too walkway down the side so the missus doesnít get her feet wet

Nice video. I was down there last week of May.

We stay in one of the corrages that you show on St Mawes seafront. It's only £5 a day on the pontoon and I can walk out of the cottage and into the boat in 30 seconds.

I haven't managed to time it right to get right up into St just creek yet, that is on my to-do list. 8 assume you only have a small window either side of hw. Does it need to be a spring tide?

Did you have a look at the lighthouse? Apparently it is the one from the credits to Fraggle Rock.

Hi Blankton, yes it was on springs and that was about an hour before high tide.

Never managed to get that close to St Anthony's Head lighthouse, it was never calm enough! Looks like you had a good day from that photo.

Did you manage to get to the Helford River? and up the Fal & Truro River?

The furthest towards Truro I have been is turnaware bar.

I have been to the mouth of the Helford a couple of times and last time I went to the manacles reef, which is past the Helford.

My sib use falls into two catagories: fishing (by myself) and sightseeing with the missus. Its rarely flat enough for the latter as she sits up front and gets splashed if there is any chop.

If the stars align and I get a flat day, then we will do the Helford, but if I'm by myself the temptation to turn out to sea for fishing is too great.

Who did you book the cottage through?

The best companies for St Mawes are

Cornish cottages and portscartho holidays. Nearly every cottage around the harbour is available as a holiday let.

That's such a shame for locals who can't afford to live in the place they were born and bred. Sign of the times I guess.

I lived in Cornwall for 19 years and my 3 children grew up there. 2 still live and work there (decent jobs) but will never be able to buy anything until their old man, me, pegs it.
