Whilst not based in Bristol, I am from Bristol and quite like the idea of dragging the boat up and having a trip in the local area. So if you do get a trip together, could you start a post to let us all know.

I know this thread is really old but I have exactly the same questions - I live in North Somerset and am looking for someone interested in Bristol Channel cruising. We have a 5m Rib with 90hp engine, so not the biggest, but would like to experiment with a trip off the coast here, with some reassurance of help/advice if needed. Any thoughts?

Bristol Channel Cruising

I live in Portishead and have just purchased an Apex 5.3 with a Mercury 75 4 stroke.
I've been out in the channel a few times on a friends RIBS and a RIB i had a while ago.
Although i'm not overly experienced out in the channel, i've been boating for some years.

With the strength of the current around here i feel it's always best to go out with a boat 'Buddy' just incase anything happens and you need a tow in.

If your interested in getting together one weekend and having a cruise up or down the channel, reply and we'll see what we can sort out.
