As mentioned, there's an open invite with free camping if someone would like to put it together. Fal is a top, top destination if you can manage a longish tow.

BDJim does it a the drop of a hat.

Ok, I'll step into the breech again as I've been sorely lax on this lately.

I reckon Mollers' offer is a really good one, but I'm slightly concerned about the distance and possible destinations from Falmouth for the smaller Seariders. Thoughts on that?


How does weekend of the 25th Sptember sound to people?

That's a good date for us.

BTW, shower, loo etc will be available with the camping.

Somewhere that won't require more than about 44 litres of petrol would be lovely, that's probably a bit dull for most of you though !

I'll have to check with the boss when he's back but think 25th is good.

No the car does quite well actually.... I was too lazy to quote but that was meant as a reply to the comment about suitable destinations from Falmouth for smaller Seariders.

I've got 2 of those not-quite-25-litres-unless-you-want-it-to-escape-everywhere tanks of Chewy's for the boat. Seen them cheaper but I felt a bit guilty about buying them elsewhere after I kept bugging him about them!

Ah right, nah they'll be fine. There's plenty to do and see and eat and drink around the Fal and Helford rivers. The furthest trip in an SR4 would be Fowey (18Nm) and there would be no real need to go that far. Nos and co. have done Fowey in spades.

The Scillies from Fal in 4m boats would be very ambitious.

Yeah I'm not that mental ! Will have to persuade another nice man to let me have a go on something bigger if that's the plan...

Can we still get the lid off that manhole to empty the bog from my camper van into?
