You may have wondered why Dave and Caroline, one time my most prolific Catch Reporters, had been absent from this site. Poor Caroline had been fighting cancer but after many brave months she she has now been given the all clear, which we are all delighted to hear. They have some other news too – they will be starting a new charter business from their purpose-built Swiftcat 11.4 metre catamaran – see photo above. Due to be launched in the Spring on 2018, it will be  to be fitted with Evinrude Etec G2 300hp engines which will provide a cruising speed of 26 – 28 knots and a WOT of 42 knots. It will be coded for 12+2 but the plan is to limit anglers to 8. There is a temporary web site

We will bring more news as the project progresses. In the meantime, we look forward to seeing more of Dave and Caroline on this site, with their amazing catches. Here is a reminder:
