Loch Awe.  The great thing about having a small boat is getting around the place to different waters.  Had a trip to Falmouth last year.  Great boat for a Billy no mates but would be well cramped with two anglers.

Yep. I had my young son and the dog out on mine and it was a squeeze. Also took a mate out on it once and there was just barely enough room for us to to fish.

Only the strong survive your baptism of fire you mean!

@OrkneyCorkney, @Saintly Fish has previous for scaring newbies away but he's harmless really. 👍

The advantage is a boat that can live in garage.  So when a storm is blowing I’m not twitching is the boat okay on mooring. Been there done that one.  This is easy for me to solo launch and recover.  The 15hp two smoke is economic, runs all day on a tank.

When they discovered the boat was only 14 foot I was directed to where they moor the tenders. How undignified or what.

Nice pics, thanks for posting.Well done for getting about OC, that is one of the great things about about trailer sailors, but even I will agree that my boat has spent far too much time (it's whole life since leaving the moulds) on it's trailer. Geoff. :classic_wink:

I think that Falmouth (and Cornwall in general) is great. For our last holiday (2019) We took the camper to Carnon downs and visited Falmouth/St Mawes/Truro etc. nearly every day. This year we are intending to take our hopefully finished boat down to Polruan, after of course the July boat ☺️meet. Geoff.

Wow - that looks brilliant - well done. How do you fancy a couple of days down in Lincolnshire to give you a bit more practice? Geoff.☺️

Decided that 14 foot boat had another bonus - less to polish. 😆 🤗

Too true, but 10 foot is not that much bigger and you could earn some bucks for your new plotter! Geoff.☺️
