I like the sound of a river cruise, it's less weather dependant. Maybe in at Putney? There's no locks and some sights to see. Can't do this weekend though.

I might be up for a jaunt from Putney, other commitments allowing. Sunday 25 looks best at the moment but I might be able to make Sat 17 or 24. Haven't looked at tides but it doesn't matter too much in a SIB

Could aim for St Katherine Docks or Limehouse for lunch maybe.

I'm not in a position yet to consider this meet ( not got my SIB yet), but it's good to see such things happen.. but would a small 3.1m SIB with 6hp be suitable for a meet like this?? or would it be scoffed at by the big-engine boys?

Us big boys with our mighty 15hp outboards?

It's a big, fast river with a fair bit of large traffic in places and something like 10-15hp and a slightly bigger boat would be preferable. You'd probably get away with it though provided you don't load the boat too much.

Like guernseylee says though, we'll make sure everyone is OK and can tailor the day to suit everyone.
