Hi All

Just registered new member here... :I'm New
Living in Runcorn but spend all our free time in Static based in Towyn , N Wales. So I'm looking into getting off the beach fishing and
onto the water. Not sure yet what to buy , but prob will be a Sib. Mainly for ease of transport etc, plus the beach is about 400 ft from caravan.... Im sure I will be asking a few questions and can't
wait to get "afloat" lol...
Cheers all

Hi and welcome. I've just got back from a few days in Caernarfon, north Wales is lovely. No boating though as it was gusting 47 mph winds.

Hi there Vance and :welcome to the forum

As said we're a friendly bunch and happy to share our experience with any questions you may have :chat so just :shoot away ;-)
The best initial advice I'd offer is the 'ease of use' of your chosen outfit will dictate how often you'll use it :!:
With that in mind consider how many folks will be aboard the majority of the time, which in turn will dicatate the size of boat, weight of boat, weight of outboard :idea:
All the best, ask away and welcome aboard :drive
