End of season freshwater trip on the Thames

Been out on the sea this season? Did you regularly flush your engine after EVERY time you used it???

I bet you didn't.

Well following on from our recent forray into central London on the River Thames I was wondering if some people fancied a real cruise up the non tidal River Thames?? Not only would the cruise clean your engine out of all that salt you get to see some of the most picturesque scenery in the UK and its most expensive real estate!!

However there is a speed limit and a day navigation permit (about a 10 for a 6m rib) would be required (available at each lock).

I'm suggesting the 12th 19th or 26th of November for the trip and it would involve a pub lunch (with seating booked!! )

Let me know if you would be interested.

Regards

Chris

Sounds like a good idea, have not been out on the Thames this year jet ether!
Do you have a plan? Windsor slip would have room for a few of us to use! Up stream would be good!
