    Bow Thrusters

    Go for it Ray. I consider myself to be a fair boat handler and have been doing so for many years but I have a BT on my boat and I use it, I know exactly what you mean about getting that bit closer as I too have arthritis quite bad in my knees and ankles and it had proved an absolute godsend, particularly when reversing into tight spaces in a wind, I had to have a pump out over easter and the space was almost impossibly tight. Had I not had the BT I would not have attempted it or if I had would have done a fair amount of damage to both mine and other boats. Mine was fitted by ferry marina about 2 years ago, they did a fantastic job and it cost just over the 3 grand mark but that was for a radio control 75 kg thrust vetus one. hope that helps cheers trev
  4. Hi All. Just want to say to everyone have a great time and I hope the weather is kind to you. We did the spring meet last year and it was ace, sadly cant make it this year for several reasons, so a tad disappointed. PS if braveheart or corsican are there, ask them if they can remember my recipie for sangria......actually on reflection, probably not as we consumed a 2 gallon bucket of the stuff between us last year and I dont think anyone remembers anything !! Have a wonderful one cheers trev

    KUS marine gauges are very good and not silly prices either. I have used several of them, in fact have 2 rudder indicators and one sender spare if anyone wants them, i ended up using a davis rudder indicator, now they are brilliant.........

    Hello All

    I thought my diesel was a bit low, saw some pikey swans in flat caps making a getaway on a reed island with a barrell under each wing. Thanks everyone for the input, much appreciated. It was lovely to meet you both today ian. The covers over your windows came loose after you went, we have put them back up for you. Cheers Trev
