I think there's a slip at Grangemouth, but it's in the the boat club on the Carron, so not sure how accessible (e.g Fee per launch / day membership etc, or when they lock their gates at night) for random punters. There's one in the canal, but the lock keeper's hours to get back in might be an issue......
that is a good point. well perhaps starting a cruise at port edgar then going down the river would be better.

anyone fancy that?

cheers

RIBase
That's all nice and I don't know any of the parties involved. My work brings me in contact with a lot of young people (previously known as children). I'd suggest a face to face and a permission note from parents of random younger members who are joining you for a rib-run. But then you knew that...

mmm... but that would mean you were in some way taking responsibility for the minor - which is strictly not normal ribnet cruise protocol - i.e. every man for himself!

Kev - do you know anything about the slipway just to the west of the old kincardine bridge (I would guess its an old ferry slip?) I spotted it as I crossed the new bridge last week but was driving so couldn't study it properly.
