Nice , Neal and I had the same problem when we returned from lunch. Seems one boat only two 4 foot ropes to tie up with. Had to use the outer Scorpion lines to hold the inner rib secure.

In addition to loosing the bow line over the side and into the prop we picked up a nail in one of the trailer tires. Thankfully its a 4 wheel trailer so just drove it home although it looks a little sorry this morning.

Late Return from Yarmouth meet

Hi
So we just got back also from Yarmouth meet-up. sorry Bryn and I left early, we headed out to Needles and then over to Cherbourg for the night.
SW 4 gusting 5 on the way a bit bumpy.
Return today was SSW 5, Gusting 6 when we made landfall. When leaving Cherbourg we headed to Bembridge end of IOW to keep the seas on the stern.
Will post some images - when I have downloaded them and reduced the image size. Some seriosly busy shipping lanes this weekend...Great sunshine both days and great ribbing.

Lets not make this weekend just gone the final one - There must be more 'high pressure' weather opportunities.

cheers
Paul

Thanks again for your help there Pete, I think we would have been stuck there until they got back otherwise.

Unfortunately as you know its all to common to come back to your boat in the busy Solent and find a couple of others rafted up against it and tied on to the grab handles, it obviously just gets worse as more boats arrive and do the same thing.

I've considered adding some text around mine saying something along the lines of: 'Not to be used for mooring' or if I'm in a bad mood that day: 'Boats secured to this handle will be set adrift'.

Now where's that stencil paper and craft knife?

Best not to confuse them with nautical terms like mooring or adrift! Perhaps just "don't tie on here!"

Sorry to hear about the tyre/Nail issue.
At the risk of upsetting those who like Haslar slip, I'm not overly surprised.

I was a bit shocked when I got there at the amount of rubbish, broken wood and general debris lying around an area where trailers with heavy loads and vehicle tyres scrabbling for grip on the rough surface could pick something up.

By the way.
I think young(ish) Andrew deserves a pat on the back for keeping up with the pack all day helming yout boat.

Nasher.

With regards to Newtown Creek, we popped in before Yarmouth, to show my crew what it was like. Had no trouble at all from the "Harbour Master". But maybe cause he was so engrossed with getting money off those who had stopped for lunch ....

My understanding of the payment scheme is as follows. If you use a bouy to moor up to, a charge is levied. If on the other hand, you drop your anchor, no fee is due but they ask for a donation, which of course you can refuse.

Took the rope off the boat today that got caught round our prop yesterday, 23m of blue floating nylon!!

Apologies for being a tail end Charlie on this one, the Ethernet connection from my Computer to Modem is playing up and am struggling with an intermittent USB connection

Excellent day folks from Launch to recovery.......Just Superb!!

Sorry to hear and see all the problems everyone was having from the already mentioned 2 ropes around props issues, the sucked in primer bulb and kinked line, the stroppy harbour patrolman to the nail in the tyre and prop slip probs that Andy had. Not to mention a couple of hairy moments that people had on the way back home and Matts issue with the way they tied up to his boat.

I'm please to say, I had a trouble free day (apart from a bruise on my knee and that dam Garmin Map problem). The closest I came to stuffing Pete caught on my Video as I passed him. There is some great footage and as soon as my internet connection is a little more stable I'll add some music and upload to Utube.

Can someone tell me how many miles we traveled from Haslar to Yarmouth and back please. My GPS was showing 43 miles however I used 63 litres of fuel. I was motoring however, but as I have problems with the GPS I'm unsure if the milage is accurate or not.

Some great pictures everyone. The one I like the best is of Pepsea tied to the harbour wall at Yarmouth. After all the time and effort by Pete in mooring her, the fender is floating in the water .....Sorry

The slip at Haslar is great and usually very quiet. I always inspect the slip for wooden planks with nails, hyperdermic needles (yes I found one once) etc. So far I haven't had a problem, I just think that Pete was a little unfortunate on Saturday (we all have bad days from time to time). Oh and I clean my boots off before I go boating Nasher

So all in all a great weekend......Oh I nearly forgot. I picked up two gallons of XD50 at the Solent boat jumble today (thanks Andy) for 30 so less that half price. Should last me till summer next year.

Had he been somewhere I could have left him to wait for the next high tide I'd have pulled him up the beach and left him there.
Perhaps you should have tied off to a suitably fragile part of their RIB, like the throttle handle or something

I can't believe what utter knobs there are around! I recon that we should get really sticky lables made up that break into a million pieces when they try to remove them, pointing out their mistake and directing them to a link or sticky on RIBnet.....A kind of name and shame! What say we all?
