Still here in Norfolk. Spot the terrier in the bottom pic!
Mint set up there Alan! Envious of that extended cover! Hope you caught some πŸ‘
Cheers, really chuffed with it now, had my doubts but really pleased with can easily fish 3 or 4 days in it now. A great addition is the candle heater my mate put me on to, it takes the chill off and stops the really bad condensation from sleeping in a boat. Fishing was hard only managed one fish would have caught more if I had stayed local but loved fishing the broads!
3 or 4 days, that sounds awesome, think I need one of those extended covers for mine, later this year mine will be stored inside so think that will be the time to invest in one, are you pleased with how yours turned out? Any changes you would make? Thanks
No changes I don't think. Really happy with it.

What speed do the coastliner owners get? Struggling to get over 8 mph on my own with a 20hp honda. Had my kids in the front got 14mph. Meeting my mate over the weekend to try a couple of different prop pitches to improve the situation

Not been out in mine yet, but was hoping to get more that 8 mph out of my 15 hp. I fish light and on my own.

As your speed has picked up with the extra weight of the kids up front it maybe needs a bit more weight up front when you are on your own? Have you got wheel or tiller steer?

Console steer. Going to check that the keel hasnt filled up with water aswell as there was such a drop in preformace. Spoke to my outboard dealer mate and he's lending me some different prop this weekend he reckons that will sort it

Know what you mean, but looks like sides zip off.

Changed the prop pitch from a 10 to a 9 feels like different boat. Started planning properly and hit 18.5mph chuffed to bits now!

Try fitting a set of fins to the outboard as well. I was gobsmacked the difference it makes. Gets up.on plane quicker and stays there when you throttle back a bit.
