If you do make it to QAB, leave yourself enough time for a breakfast in Sound Bites cafe!

Mmm, breakfast.

Anyway - I rang to reserve a spot and learned its tidal. However, low tide is mid-day, so shouldnt be an issue as I will be somewhere East or West by then.

"Tidal" ?
the marina dosent dry out there is always plenty of water - the slip is usable all states of the tide but one of them has a step on to shingle at the end [if my memory is right] otherwise nothing to worry about

Yes, I looked at the chart and it does not look tidal !

Perhaps they person I spoke to was confused or thougth a RIB had a keel

I may ring again to see.

Just a quick update - the staff at QAB were great, very helpfull and friendly. Gave me a hand lanuching, which I needed as the ramp is at a shallow angle.

Recovering I made use of their tractor service, as it saved me from having to drown the van.

Security was reassuringly good. Gates padlocked, coded entry everywhere.
