Report on-board Size Matters
With the weather forecast giving 30 kts SE and getting much worse every day we had no choice but to cut our last set of tides short and get the boat out the water for the yearly spruce up.
We only had two days to get it done before the rain arrived and gale force winds.
The boys got stuck in, scratch coated the old anti foul, new coat of anti foul,
polished the prop, polish all the gel coat,
applied two coats of wax and change all the anodes.
Massive thanks to everyone who helped,
the 19 year old Guimond 45 (Size Matters) looks as good as new, I am sure this boat gets bigger every time it comes out the water!
The fishing on the Mersey is pretty steady and is showing no sign of slowing down, at this rate the cod will be here till spring in good numbers.
Most days catching 20 to 30+ cod per trip to 8lb 10oz but most are 2lb to 4lb,
Rays are starting to show more and more each set of tides to 10lb along with Whiting, Flounder and Dabs.
We start out last set of tides on the Mersey for this winter season on February 14th, this is the only day we have 7 places available 4.30am sailing back in at 1.30pm, £45 pp includes all fishing tackle and hot drinks.
Hopefully we will get chance to go to the offshore marks before we finish in Liverpool,
it will be very interesting to see if the fishing is still as good as it was a few weeks ago.
