D'oh. Small screen on "Edge" - I totally missed a screen of postsyesterday.
I will be there for the day on Saturday, at the moment single handed, but I may have a crew.
I am only 40 mins down the road, so a 9am launch is feasible, meaning I could be well clear of the slip & help as required.
Another high level thought for those heading back on Sat- I'm packing dinner - just in case we get the maths wrong!
Mackattack - where have you seen those shallows? it would be interesting to compare notes.
Comparing the google earth satellite photo with the chart, for example, the ford at cambus (unsurprisingly) seems to have shifted upriver by potentially 100 yds when comparing the "satellite shadows" to the chart.
