Hello from a newbie .

 I own a Predator 160 and take it up to Oban Scotland once a year for a weeks fishing (mostly pollock).I worked in the aerospace industry and thanks to the covid pandemic have taken early retirement. So hopefully when and if we get back to normal with no restrictions I can do a lot more fishing. 

Cheers 

    Chris.

Crikey that was a quick reply !

No its a Focus estate ecoboost , had a Focus st170 before which I found to be better for towing as it had more low down  torque.

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Andy , the only other place I've fished is out of Dartmouth . Living near Nottingham I always had to have a weeks holiday and trailer the boat there.

Would like to try the North East for a bit of cod fishing.

Hi Chris - Dartmouth is a lovely place to fish. Years ago I kept a small boat upriver and would fish the mouth of the Dart for bass and pollack. Never managed to venture as far as the Skerries though, which I regret now.

That's an impressive beast in your profile pic. Salmon?

Welcome to the site. Nice setup you have there but I think you need a Land Rover to be safe. 

Don't start that again 🤣. Land Rovers are for masochists who like fixing things.

Welcome Chris nice boat mate. 
had plenty of towable boats mainly Warriors. 
Now I have a Arvor 230 and it’s to big to tow 

Missing the trips away with the boat. 
like to get down to Falmouth for the Blue Shark. 
and up your area for the skate 👍
