Sounds like a proper set up mate, I知 only just dipping my toes I致e got a 2.4 Sib with a 4HP Outboard...

I normally got out from Heybridge Basin... weather dependent I知 edging towards estuary opening at Tollesbury/Bradwell...

If weather not great I poodle around Maldon Prom/Beeleigh Falls... nearly got caught out last time with tide going out quicker than I estimated!!
