Today saw Oscar, my Wellcraft 218 Coastal fishing boats first outing. A friend wanted to use her for his son who was taking a diving exam with instructor.

Ok sez I your welcome to use her, just gas her up. When they arrived I remembered that when I bought her the fishfinder/depth gauge was naff, and I had'nt got round to fitting the new one yet doh........kinder fundamental to a diver to know the depth I guess /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

I could only suggest using the 18m floating line off the horseshoe with a plumb weight. Now my friend a very experienced seaman, reckons its years since hes used such a method, but did it anyway.
The day was a success and his son passed his exam.
Next week gonna take her out on her (and my) first fishing trip.
Now where did I put that new fishfinder /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
