7th March Knott End.

Hi folks

A trip has been taked about for the 28th Feb, however this is on a very low tied 6.6M, and a very early start.

I would suggest the following week 7th March.

Tide is 9.5M at 11.30. This would allow to lauch and be away for 10.00am, giving a good 5 hours and still recovering at 15.00 still in daylight.

Depending on weather I suggest a trip down the shore at Blackpool, to say south shore or Gut Buoy then across to Piel Island for a pie & pint, (45 miles ish).

If weather is great (we can hope) we could come back via the gas fields (72 miles ish). if weather is S**T we could go stright to Piel Island (28 miles ish) or if that bad launch at Stanna and play in the surf round wire light.

So who on for it, plan to lauch at Knott End be in the water & ready for 10.00 and decide on the day based on weather and RIBs how far a field we go.

Regards Gary

Gary, if there's room on a rib for me and Deb's, please book us in. Sounds like there's plenty to do in the area whatever the weather.

Barry, what modifications have you made to your Searider? Have you put a Flybridge on it?

Hi folks

Ian

Yes their is room on my RIB, if wife & kids come we have seats for another 2, if not their is seats for 5 more.

Barry saw your, "foredeck accomodation" last time, take it you rent it out if people need to test out their waterproofs

Will get a lat long for piel but of you find barrow, then Walnsey Island Piel is on the channel between Walsney Island & Barrow.

Will post lat long, distance guess at 45 miles ish confirm tonight when I get to a chart.

Good place, good anchorage, sheldered, water taxi, jetty, pub, food, castle, toilets, showers what more can you ask for.

In summer you can also camp on the island, bit expensive though at 1.00 per tent

Regards Gary
