  1. ok i have had my boat put on hard standing i went today to take sum of the stuff out of her i notest a bulge in the deck between the v birth the is only two chock one under the stern and one under the bow on the thinnest part of the keel nothing mid ships should a boat not be supported mid sips as well. I think that the boat yard has not supported my boat correctly this may have damaged my boat's hull it has developed leeks and rain water has soaked the furnishings the was no leeks before it went on hard standing except from the wheel house door. should a 25ft be supported on the keel in more than two pleases or at leas on the deepest part of the keel any advice appreciated regardsbill
  2. Thank you all who posted helpful advice on this thread i went for the EA rod licence as it seems there is lots of water fishing that dose not nead anything more than that and can buy day permit's for arias that need them and will be getting the CRT wanderers licence as well. I do wonder if folks stopped asking questions on this forum and just researched everything their would be no need for the forum their are sum who have had more input negative input and spent more time doing that than actually answering the question. So in answer to the question this forum will just fade away what is a forum for to ask questions as usually helpful answers come back it seem that most thread's get bogged down with snide comments and remarks on this one if i have a question to ask in future no mater what it is i will research it or get my information from other sources like i have commented thanks for the advice if the admin can delete my account and my information that would be very much appreciated i have aided all emales from this forum to my spam on email account regards bill
