Mike - Excellent!!

yes - that sounds perfect!! - I spoke to Martin earlier and we plan to travel down together and launch from Mylor - www.boatlaunch.co.uk shows a nice slip with access at all states of the tide.

I think Martin and I will safely borrow some of your cans and take the fuel with us - sounds much easier (and cheaper) than getting it over there!!

Between us we are probably looking at about 200l !!!!! - so that will be most of your 25l cans!!!!

BTW - Martin and I are booked into Trelawney Guest House

Jools

(should probably start saving for a diesel rib now!!)

Your offer is very generous and I would reciprocate with generous portions of the local sauce!

I reckon that Julian would want some of the cheaper diesel as well so we can spread it around and top up down there.

If the truth were known I should have enough to get there and back but always prefer to have too much fuel than not quite enough.

Must remember to give you a wide berth on the way down with all the Petrol and Diesel on board !

Regards and thanks

Mark.

OK guys. I will set aside enough containers for Jools and Martin to fill up with a total of 200 L of petrol. I'll RV with you both at Mylor on the morning of the 7th June and hand them over and you can do your petrol dash to fill before we set off for the convoy RV.

I will fill the rest with diesel when I fill up myself before the trip and Mark and Julian can fight over the spoils when we meet up. I will carry the two big 90 litre containers as I have straps to fit them to Mag A.

However I would like to hand over the rest of the smaller containers of diesel when we meet. Mag A is a heavy ol' b*****r at the best of times. Acting as convoy fuel bowser might spoil the fun. And I hate following in anybody's wake !

PS Please, fellas, bring lots of string to tie down these blighters. Know whadImean!

Just a tiny additional to what Mike has said...........
if you look at the chart the most CONVENIENT place for you to top-up on the way back is Dartmouth. The marina there is 24/7 and you will tend to go close-by on your return (or way down!).

Sounds Good

Hi All,

Just spoken to lemmer who told me about this. So loged on and Sounds good.
I should be able to make it all being well with work, Mike maybe we can meet BR and leave Fal together.

The best resturaunt in Falmouth is the new Hunkey Dory, it is fantastic and i beleive as well as everyone I know that the fillet steak there is the best they have eaten.

Martin, Mylor is not all sates access, there is mud at the bottom of both slipways, You should possibly be ok on 1.5m low, but best call matt or dusty on 01326 372 121.

Looking forward to it,

Toby

Hi Toby. You've been playing a low profile. Guess the KHF Co is making you earn that daily crust. I'm a bit out of touch with what you're up to. Did you sell the Water Taxi in the end?

Thanks for the info on slipway at Mylor. I will certainly take your advice and call Matt or Dusty to seek advice from people with local knowledge.

I don't know what other slipways are available in that area. Looking at boatlaunch.co.uk there are others , such as Grove Place boatyard and Port Falmouth Boatyard.

I'll be launching 6m of Rib and am open to sugestions as to suitability and state of tide access, parking for car/trailer in the area.

Also welcome are suggestions for a B&B as I hope to come down to Falmouth area on the Friday ready for the Saturday run to the Scillies.

Grove Place

Grove Place slipway in Falmouth looks like an excellent facility although I've never launched there personally. Wide slipway and looks to be all tide. Think Toby should be able to recommend accomodation otherwise ask Brian for the place we've stayed at before whose name escapes at the moment!

Mike,

Yes I sold the busisness end last year and now have 5 big ferries that we run out of falmouth and for the park and float. Very busy at the moment as you can imagine, possibly seen the articles in the packet and w britton.

Spoke to hugo last week and am still planning to do that article for RiB Int, about ribing in Cornwall but finding it hard to get the time to put it together.

Mstacy, Mylor is the best place to launch and you can leave your trailer up the valley which has cctv, only a small restriction on tide, but the best place to launch around.

Port Falmouth Slipway has gone, the grove place slip way is big and all tide states but gets very busy and also you have to drive through town and past Trogo Mills!!! to get there, possible but cxan be tricky so would recomend Mylor.

B&B in Penryn where I used to live, V Nice, an old packet ship captains house, AA 5* 01326 373 198

Otherwise see www.kingharryscornwall.co.uk a marketing company in the office above me, best of the bunch.

Any other Qs please post and will awnser if I can.

Looking forward to it.

Toby
