NEW MEMBER JOINING SOA

Post by HENERGY » Wed Jan 24, 2018 9:01 am

Hi SOA Members,
I have just joined, my name is Paul Hales, almost 71 years old, ex RN, ex Commercial Fisherman, boated and fished from the age of 8 from the East Sussex coast.
Have a Shetland ? model for the past 4 years, berthed in Sovereign Harbour, Eastbourne, East Sussex. Was retired, (few months) now run a renewable energy research company, dealing mainly into Tidal Stream Energy.
Try to get out and fish once a week, but weather so far has been so breezy and wet this winter that I'm starting to feel like a land animal again.

Still not sure the model of my craft, has a number plate and looks like a 536 but several things seem different, I'm sure the Assoc will put me right.

Best Regards

Paul

Hi Paul,
Welcome to the SOA.
The 536 went through a couple of changes before being renamed the Family Four, with the F4 mk5 finally losing the last of the 536 details such as the shape of the windscreen. If you are not sure exactly what you have got, look at the specs for early F4 models too.
