I know you have come to expect a piss take in every comment from certain members of the South West Rib Crew Not mentioning any mollers... er I mean names !!!

But I was actually asking a bona fide question - I was wondering whether we could get some "James Bond" style video footage of a boat coming out from under there at full tilt or if we would get nicked in the process.

Go on, you must do Bob, remember the bit when you said something like

"Thats a 35 mile trip and the only water I got in the boat was from under that %*+~? bridge"
and then Sue said something like

" Not content with doing it once he went back for another go."

There, that help?

I think that all rivers and estuarys are restricted now Roy. Although, I did hear that the Tamar up around the bridge has had the limit lifted.



( Was that non piss-take enough Roy?! )

I didn't tell him Bob, Honest

Yes your right about the Tamar Mollers, limit was 8kts for years but now lifted from the bridges upstream for about 3/4 mile and dedicated as water ski area. Hang on I've just remembered where you heard this!
