I might be a bit late but did the boat get sorted?
I have lots of experience with fibreglass roofs not so much boats but I’m sure there’s not much difference also i have some stock of GRP gear which I’m willing to use free of charge plus labour.
My phone number should be on file if I can help please get in touch

Thursday 24th. Couple of nice carp caught snapped by a third, 3 large Bream and a couple of Roach otherwise a slow day. Have to work to find them typical for this time of year.
I fished Jacksons this week and had a good day. Among my catch were Carp,Barbel, Roach, Perch,small skimmers and a couple of decent sized Hybrids. Ican honestly say that I enjoyed my day.

Listening to the comments at the last meeting regarding the amount of silver fish that are being caught and Laurie's comments on the forum, as well as the poor match returns, I can't help but draw your notice to the similar situation that we had several years ago. This was of course blamed on Cormorants as we had no idea as to what else could cause the downturn in the catch rate. There was as now many sightings of these birds on the pond.
At the time we engaged the help of the Environment Agency to advise on the state of the fish stocks. Although their findings and remedy were regarded at the time to be quite controversial and upset certain sections of the membership, the results were quite dramatic and there was a vast improvement in the quality of the fish stocks as well an improved level of sport.
Before we embark on a knee jerk reaction and blame everything on the Cormorant problem I think it would be wise to contact a professional body such the Environment Agency and ask them if they can do a survey to estimate the stock levels in the pond and suggest a plan to improve the quality of the fishing.
We of course do not have to follow their advice but it would enable the members to at least have a professional opinion to consider rather than just assuming that the problem of the poor silver fish returns lies solely in the Cormorant problem.
Managing a fishery is not all about just tipping more fish into it in an effort to improve sport. If there are other factors at play as well as the Cormorants that are hindering the well being of the fish stocks then these will have to addressed as well. This is where a more professional body may be able to advise and help us.

Great day again yesterday 9th July. Plenty of roach and small skimmer with the odd gudgion and Perch, 5 Tench all over pound and a quarter and 7 Crucian the latter 2 were the ones I was fishing for. All caught on very small punched bread.

Jacksons fished hard tonight. Lost 2 carp on yellow wafter. Saw that everyone apart from Wayne and Paul were struggling so decided to bitbash instead. My pitiful weight was made up of roach, perch, Ide, gudgeon and 2 small skimmers. Fished peg 3.
