River Exe Cruise 2/7

There are all sorts of small boats moored up along the River Exe at Exmouth and one of the first ones we saw was Oceanic Warrior, a catamaran style boat that is available for hire for fishing and so on. I think it must be quite old because the company that runs it are now up to Oceanic Warrior III on their website.

Not the world's prettiest craft, is it, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Probably built more for a purpose than its looks I guess Ray.
I like the agressive design of this boat Brian! A warrior indeed...
Brian Walbey: Indeed Richard, very much a working boat rather than a leisure one.

Is that Exmouth in the background, Brian?
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Lisl, sadly being a Sunday in mid-October most of it was closed so we probably didn't see it at its best.

Old but perfectly functional
Brian Walbey: My thoughts entirely Chris.

Yes I can see quite a few new-builds along the shore line. What a shame.
Brian Walbey: There seems to be a leaning towards building seafront blocks of expensive apartments for the wealthy Mike, or that's how it seemed to me anyway.

What a con Brian.
warrior is a big word for such a small vessel
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Chantal, a mystery as to why it was called that.
She looks sturdy.
Brian Walbey: I guess she needs to be if she goes out to sea for deep sea fishing expeditions.
nicely captured Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ronky.
It's a bit of a tub isn't it Brian? smile
Brian Walbey: That's what I thought when I saw it Bill.
Brings back memories Brian. It was indeed very popular with the boats
Brian Walbey: I'm glad of that Janet, there are some really old boats floating about there.

It could be that they bought three of them at the same time, maybe wink It doesn't look all that old to me (but then what do I know?) Do they not have Sunday opening in Exmouth? I've never had the pleasure of going there.
Brian Walbey: Their website seems to suggest they have bought more modern boats since they got this one. When I said closed I really meant out of season, hardly any of the shops in the town centre were open and the sea front near the centre we didn't find that inspiring, but then it wasn't the most fantastic of days weather wise.

What a grand name - how many persons, bikes ... might find place on this boat?
Brian Walbey: Its name is more inspiring than its appearance isn't it. I don't know about bikes but I guess it is big enough for quite a few people to out fishing in deeper water.

It doesn't look much like a boat, Brian ... but I love it's personality
Brian Walbey: Strange looking thing isn't it.
