MFV ‘Ruby D’ - The Skipper - Paul Wells
I am 57 years old married with 4 children and live in Weston super Mare. I began angling in the early 1970’s taking my hobby further shortly afterwards by running a fishing boat from my moorings on the River Axe, Uphill, Weston-Super-Mare.
I built my first boat in 1990 and fished using this boat for my living for 8 years, single-handed long lining and trammel netting. I also joined the Weston super Mare RNLI in 1984 and ended my afloat service as one of the stations Helmsman. I then became one of four dedicated launching authorities for the RNLI, until I retired in 2008.
With the arrival of a new Evolution 33 charter boat Cast-Away in 2007 I began as a Charter Skipper for Breaksea Boats operating out of Portishead Quay Marina. After the success of this partnership I have now invested in my own charter boat a new even faster Evolution 30 powered by a 420 hp Iveco turbo diesel.
