I use Morrison's for fuel, on the roundabout once in Plymouth on the way to the slip.

What time are you thinking of leaving the breakwater fort?

Plymouth Sound for me tomorrow. Will be up for a trip to the lighthouse if the sea behaves and others fancy it.

Will be about from 11 ish I suspect. Call sign Nutkin

Hi,

Lee Mill Tesco for fuel is easily accessible and reasonable price but BP at Smithaleigh is easier. I always launch at Saltash just over the other side of the Tamar. Free slipway north of the bridge and free parking and pontoon (no facilities though unles you go to the pub up the road) - the only thing you will pay is the bridge toll. Takes about 20 minutes to get out past the Naval dockyard speed restricted area but might be interesting if you haven't been past it before. I have a L200 and can launch at any tide from there but be aware at low tide you have to drop off the end of the slip (about a 15cm drop but there are kerb stones laid to reduce this). Mountbatten is ok but you have to pay to use the pontoon and any facilities (the wife had a sense of humour failure when i made her hold the boat off the slip while I parked the car!!) and is just as quick to get to Saltash by the time you have negotiated the roads to get there.

P.S. the Sainsburies petrol station at Marsh Mills would probably be possible, but a bit tight - I can get my boat in but the trailer is only 7m total.

Any other info required then just PM me.

Hope you have a good run down and the weather is kind!

Andy

Thanks guys, launched at mount batten who were very helpful, and I left the rib on the pontoon overnight. Went out to the lighthouse and then over to the James Eagan lane wreck. Great day out. A bit of fun trying to get back in before the tide went out as did not realise the slip was not really suitable at low tide.

Will definitely be back over the summer for a trip around to Salcombe, and also down to Cornwall.

Will post some photos..

good day out for the spear fishermen, with a bass and Pollock as reward.
