Just to update this thread, I have just returned from Plymouth having put the boat into the dry stack at Yacht Haven Quay. Hopefully, I'll continue to get good use from the boat this year, despite the 2 hr drive from home. Things started well today with a lovely trip to the River Yealm and then Salcombe, before an afternoon return before the weather changed! A lovely trip, with my first ever sighting of white gannets (with black wing tips) diving for fish like torpedoes from about 50ft - amazing. Will try and get a few pics on here over the next day or two.

Thanks all.
