"Hi Nick, Yes, no problem. A couple of safety suggestions for all. 1) Test the floatation of your pole marker every now and again. A pro yacht manager came through my booth at Strictly Sail in Oakland two weeks ago. He was testing all…"

"Thanks for the suggestion Philip, I appreciate the benefits of this device, however it's out of my price range. I already have a dan buoy, just need to put it somewhere"

JUST MARINE replied to Nick Martin's discussion Positioning a Dan buoy
"Hi Nick, Here's a solution in a slightly different direction. Instead of having a MOB stick that is combersome and breakdown in the sun, have an SOS Dan Buoy inflatable marker instead. This is a small pouch, not much bigger than…"

"Good question Paul, I'd like to hear some more opinions on this. In the brief time I've been sailing Tiki's I've come to find the spinnaker (I have a symmetric) a very useful sail. It's really flexible the way it can be set…"

Hi Nick

Glad to be your friend.  I see you sold the 21, well done.

My boat will be staying in Exeter for a while, because I had my engine stolen last week.  I was in the water, rafted third boat out.  Man on second boat watched 2 guys walk across his boat, use bolt cutters to take my engine and then walk back across his boat.  Didn't challenge or even speak to them!!!

Anyway, sailing 3 weeks of April so not too bad.  Hope everything else is okay for you.

Cheers

Paul

 Hi Nick, I take it Paul owns the Tiki 31 in Exeter, I could have been interested but didn't want another project, I don't think my wife would have liked the huge size and spread out accommodation. I will look out for you in spring as my old boat is in MS Marine's yard on brokerage with Boatshed so I often go to check on things, and walk the dog across the grass between our boats. Cheers Nibby

Hi Nick, went for a mooch around Exmouth yesterday isn't it sad to see that neglected Wharram on the sandbank, can't quite work out if it is a Tane 27 length seems about right she probably floats as the holes are in the bulwarks above deck level, she could be a nice boat as the alloy mast and rig alone could be worth a few quid. Scat looks snug and safely out of sight, does Mark charge extra for a cat? I enquired about a winter berth in the marina from the harbour master as with so many years ashore I don't think ashore is really necessary next winter, but £1200 changed my mind, do you know what the Turf lock fee is?.
