Thanks Si,
I'm on the East Coast at Withernsea, but York is only an hour or so away so getting there is not a problem. We occasionally stay at a campsite on Bishopthorpe Road with our motorhome. Due to work commitments I only get every other weekend off, but if your happy for me to send you a PM when I'm looking at going that would be great. Thank you

Taking on board all the advice has caused me to come at 'getting started' with my new outfit from a completely different angle. I'm now looking at starting on an inland waterway and as I have relatives who live virtually next door to the Fossdyke Navigation in Saxilby Lincolnshire I thought this maybe a good place to try my first launch and practice with the outfit. Has anyone used the Fossdyke navigation and what are your thoughts on it as a starting point.
I've been on the Rivers & Canals Trust web page and I would need a permit but that can all be done online. Thanks again to everyone who's been in contact and I welcome your thoughts on the above.
Hi mate near saxilby burton waters is where you want to go it's got a good slipway you pay for the slip and the canal and river trust fee for the day about £20 last time I went car park adjacent, chandlery on site and a pub for a meal, turn left go up to Lincoln and right to west stock with two decent journeys ideal for your set up and expeariance I ran my engine in there spot on.
Just a side if you do go 15 hp it's a different ball gave on the plane at speed and I would only practise in a large area as mentioned the lakes is a good place.
Redcar is good to with scars running at 45 degrees to shore lots of crab and lobster some good fishing off there to ( scars are reefs for info) on calm days at low tide the scars form a harbour to play in.
Fisherman land thier catch on the beach so if the big fish gets away you can buy one to save face :thumbsup

Cheers

Thanks Jeff I know Burton Waters and I think I was in the pub you mentioned a couple of weeks ago when we visited our daughter. I think a bigger motor will be required but as everyone has suggested I'm going to be better prepared and live longer if I start on inland stuff with my current setup and get comfortable with it. Thanks again
