New guy about town

New guy here. Wave raves the name. Or Gerry.
Glasgow based. Been trolling lochs for years on a wee fibreglass number with a 4hp but got a bit sea itchy so went got myself an excell vanguard 395 with a soozi 15 on the back.
Break in on the loch was a ball and its brighouse bay in a fortnight for the first jolly on a bit of salty. Ive been tip toeing round the edges of the forum and found it to be a wee cave of goodies so here I am.
Certainly a bit of a learning curve goin from a glass boat with a 4hp to a big balloon with a 15 but so far (3 days out) it's a right hoot.
I'm sitting at about 55 minutes from parking the van to pulling the starter with a 50 metre walk to launch.
I reckon I will get that time down but does that seem reasonable?

Hi Gerry and welcome.

55 mins is good. Others will say you can set up in 30-40 mins, but why rush and forget something?

Cheers. Good to know. I reckon that time will come down the more I do it and get a "system" in place.
