Ooff yeh......


Didn't think it was that low.!


Still possible, just need to get tides right(EXACTLY RIGHT ) I will check these nearer the time.

As I've booked this, I def going to make the trip to Portsmouth, see how far I can get, if it looks bad, turn around. I think I need around 1.2m to clear.

Likewise, but at worst it will just mean waiting for the tide to drop a bit.

Been looking at this to get an idea of air draft under the bridges.

HW Portsmouth ( Harbour entrance) is 10.57am that day @ 4.3m ( from RYA website) . Considering tides run up to 5.0m (thats what I 'think' the video shows) - so I reckon that will give another (call it) 60cm under the bridges + the maybe the 80-100cm in the video.

So maybe 140cm in all...?

Of course thats all finger in the air guesswork....I'm working on the idea that it will be later than that before its actual HW at Hilsea ( if its anything like the other harbours etc along the Solent - maybe half hour later ?) . So my finger in the air figure could well be on the low side of the actual airdraft .....

Yep, looking at the water line on the bridges, I'd agree that it was a big tide when this guy went through. If it's a 4.3 on the 7th then we should be okay, and we'll have the ebb of the tide on the run out of Langstone so that should work to our favour. I'm really looking forward to it.

I'd check whether we still have any Navy ships before making the trip
