we should be able to get into Chatam marina without any problems as its a locked basin, then its a short walk across to the Chatam maritime shopping outlet where there's a variety of food on offer in the food court.
Alternative idea is the yacht club at Queensbourgh, we'd moor on the swinging visitor bouys and get a lift over to the pontoon with the guy that looks after the moorings, the Yacht club is welcoming to visiting yachts man.
Alternative idea is the pub at Queensbourgh which servs food, only problem is it gets busy as me and Phil D found out once !!
We could also rn up to Rochester and find a pub near the river.
There's not much at Hoo marina or inside Chatam marina food wise though its only a short walk to the centre.
Have you any ideas yet about meeting times and where we are going to meet up, what channel etc.
