Have been out several times over the last few years and will continue to be a regular customer. Excellent boat with a good comfortable layout. Friendly skipper who always finds the fish and is willing to offer advice on tackle, bait, rigs etc. And always on hand with the Tea and Coffee! Have caught a good variety of species including Huss, Conger, Spurdog, Ling, Whiting, pouting, Blue shark (all unhooked in the water to give them the best chance of survival) and of course the obligatory dogfish! Thoroughly recommended.
