We are all looking forward to Dave and Caroline starting their charter business. The build of their new boat is nearing completion, and the countdown to launch begins. They are aiming for launch the Week of the 14th May. Chris at “Swiftcat Power Catamarans” is building the vessel, and this coming weekend will see the first fix of electronics plus safety gear and other equipment.
After launch the first week will be spent with sea trials, then it will be open for bookings. The website www.charterboatdointhedo.co.uk will go live at the same time. Dointhedo will be operating from Premier Marina Gosport, which means you can be out of Portsmouth harbour and heading to the chosen fishing grounds within minutes of leaving the berth. As part of the launch promotions, there will be a number of competitions to win charter trip “Gift Cards” which will allow the holder to take one of a variety of trips (Wrecking, Inshore etc). Keep an eye open on Facebook forums such as “Solent Beach & Boat Fishing” & “Solent Boat Fishing”, as well as the “Dointhedo” Facebook page for details on how to win one of these vouchers.

Here at Boat-Angling, we will be running a photo fish competition with a top prize of one of these amazing vouchers. Keep visiting this site to ensure you do not miss out on the details of this forthcoming competition.

If you wish to be informed of progress as it happens then write to Dave and Caroline at  dointhedo@mail.com and they will add you to the mailing list.
