What an excellent project. The hull is coming along nicely. Are you getting support from local commercial fishermen? (or do they see you as competition?).
Hi Roger! Thank you! Looking forward to getting some glass on the hull next week. Everyone’s been unbelievably supportive of our project so far, so we’re really looking forward to starting fishing!
Afloat – good, now you have to learn to sail her, singlehanded, blindfolded, whislt making a pot o’ tay and in all weathers! Once ye’ve done that ye should be able to start fishing – me? I’d run a few pots first and maybe a couple of long lines / spinners for mackerel in season – don’t rush it and leave the nets alone (thats an undemocratic way to fish……like using sonar and diesel engines!). Know what you are doing by Christmas – 2019 – if ye be lucky! Best o’ luck. Remember seafaring is a disease, once caught you’ve had it, no matter what level, but there again who’d want to!
Hi Simon and Cat. Good to meet you on the beach on Portscatho as you were waiting to for the tide to come in. Thanks for sharing your inspiring story. We passed your greetings to Nigel in Cadgwith when we went with him to haul lobster pots. looking forward to hearing how the vision unfolds. Phil
Hi Phil, Great to meet you too and thanks so much for passing on our regards to Nigel. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Cheers, Cat and Si
