Likewise.

I guess the river festival will be happening again this year. - They'll be expecting people in boats then, and there will be something to do (apart from walking up Union Street in your waterproofs!) when you get there!

I did research this last year and then moved house at the wrong moment, so abandoned the plan. Memory says there's a couple of 4(ish) knot limits round Bowling, King Geo V dock and up past the BAE yard. There's a leaflet that you can get in marinas with all the info on, but I've never been able to find an electronic version of it.

So, anyone up for a trip (assuming it's on?)

speed !

i was told by clydeport that there is no speed limit and all other info is just a myth for safety. i have done this trip many many times in both a rib and also a 32ft hard boat that i kept in renfrew. all i can say is to look out for many logs etc and stay well clear of and large ships or you will end up in breahead!

Clyde Up River Trip

Hey

I'd be up for this - anyone aware of places to launch? had a look at Bowling this Saturday - no chance/no slip!

Did see slips on Google earth near Renfrew Ferry and at Erskine - have heard bad things about remote slips hereabouts!

Is the public slip (from the layby) at Kip any use for a non 4x4?

Ideas on a postcard!

there is a slip at "Newark Castle" in Port Glasgow (south side of the river). It is tidal, and when I used it was quite slimy - but perfectly usable with a rope.

If you use google earth -
55 57' 26.18" N
40 48' 30.34" W

As you can see from the map, this an old boat building launching slip, no one uses it now, but it is accessible at all stages of the tide and alway calm. (it's one of those only the locals know about) we used to use it to launch a dive Rib.

What bad things?

I recall a couple of years ago reading, and I think it was on this site, about a bloke returning after launching to find his trailer trashed, slashed and generally useless.

Bad enough?

That slip is, I think, in a carpark which may be perrfic pervy-land?

Trying to be positive but that whole area gives me a bad feeling.
