On Sunday there were a few tinnies of around 4 metres, including one that had a 15hp on the back.


Well Wolly there's no one stopping u, or those that did it, but there's no way I'd chance the rip in a 4.0 with a 15hp, nor would i recommend it to anyone. When the tide is running you could be drifting up to 8 knots (guess) , and with depth changing from 60m to 15M in an instant waves can appear from nowehere if your timing was wrong.
