Thankyou!

If anyone has any recommendations for restaurants, bars etc in Lymington then please feel free to let me know as by 5 when it's gone dark I'll be kicking my heels a bit! (There's only so much time I can spend stroking my new toy...if you'll pardon the expression!)

Kings Head at the top of quay Hill (bottom of the High Street) is good for people and beer. Mayflower is right beside Bath road where you might be launching your boat (?) and is good for quick food but get v busy. There is an ASK and Café Uno in the High Street if want something more than pub food and Stanwells if you want to really splash out.
Of all of them Kings head is favourite at the moment and walking distance from marinas etc.
Or you could slip across to Yarmouth in your new toy

From this list:
http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs...n%3BHampshire/

I would probably choose the Kings Head - It shuts in the afternoon not sure what time it opens.
The Angel is good for a Pint of 6X and its open all day.
Chequers is a bit of a walk good but can be a bit “Yachty / Lovey “ at times.

For a short Taxi trip I would recommend:

Fleur De Lys at Pilley - Very good pub fare 01590 672158

Or

Hobbler on the Brokenhurst road out of Lymington
http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs...how_comments=5

Probably just as well to book at the Weekends to avoid disappointment.

Edit - Just seen previous reply - Agree with Des about the Kings Head

Thanks for that!

I'm staying in the Mayflower Inn as it was recommended as only being a short walk to the marina and being inherently lazy seemed ideal!

I'll give the Kings Head a try and see what it like.....

I can see this turning into a one man pub crawl by the end of Friday night!!

Nice boat Pettal!! Although I am a little biased
I love the color and had nothing but favorable comments on mine so far.
Must admit I have gone a little over the top when adding accessories.
I went for some paddles and the chandlers only had yellow in the syle I wanted.They were quite amused when I turned them down as I said they would "clash" with my color scheme.
Even sprayed my bait tank discharge pipe and fuel filter black to match!
Have to change the boats name I think though as "orangeaid" makes the locals think I am some sort of vessel assist!
My kids wanted "Tigga" as its black and orange and "bouncy,bouncy,bouncy'
and over here its certainly "the only one" as the song goes.
(Saw a tigger on ribnet site though and didnt want to offend.)Maybe they wont mind as its unlikely we are ever going to run into each other

Love that extra deck space though;have you thought of what sort of boarding ladder you are going to use?.I dive and had seen some transom mounted ones that look interesting.just not sure how much space it would leave when climbing with all the gear on.
cheers Dal

Hi,

Thankyou all for the comments and only 24hrs to go now!!!

Regarding the boarding ladder, we just tend to hand weights, tanks and fins over to the boat handler then it's more of a lift and flop over the side. I had considered a ladder but I quite like making my mates look stupid (some of them need to get fitter and have at least two attempts at getting in) and it's highly entertaining!!!

I've seen a couple though that just hang over the tubes that I might invest in for the future, but we'll have to wait and see!

Look here http://www.boat-finder.com/17858/info.php Barnet do a ladder which attaches to the "A" Frame. Don't know if I would climb them fully kitted tho. Prbably hand kit in and then climb up, beats finning like hell!!

Crossing my fingers at the moment that the wind will disappear for Saturday's trip!

Looking ok at the moment but not sure what the wind will do to the swell etc. I'm hoping that because this is a 24hour windy patch it won't affect the sea state a huge amount.......otherwise it'll be a bit lumpy on the way back.

The channel bouy weather outlook says 2-3ft swell which would be nice! Lets just hope it's right!

I've just come back from a very choppy Solent - spent the afternoon having excellent fun in the waves with Timboli. But looking at the forecast, looks like you're going to sneak between the gales... http://www.ecmwf.int/products/foreca...!2004111712!!/ and the forecast for tomorrow looks good too.
