Thanks Kev

We can charge the usual helpers fee...50 per boat each way!!!

Looking at the whole thread I have compiled a list of those who have noted interest.
Of the 12 below can you confirm who is launching at PE and if you are still coming so that SPR can let the organisors know the size of the rabble in ribs!

Glenna - 51ROB20
Puddleduck - SPR
Snagglepuss - Dave (clydeoutboards)
Imposter - Polwort
No boat name -Deano
Seamate - Kev
Wildheart - 9D280
Spindrift - Zodiac Spindrift
Volante - Shog69
Bathtub - AWR
Marlin - Dougcrock
Massive - Colin (macattack101)

Cheers
Colin

Hi

if there are 12 boats launching at PE this is going to take some time and there will be a lot of space needed for trailers and cars.

This will be even worse recovering them so are we 100% that there will be enough water when we come back to get all 12 boats out?

also can you just confirm that we will have at least 5 feet of water if we leave at the right times.

looking forward to this.

Dave

Dave the launching will take a while but thats why Kev and I have volunteered to don waders and save on people getting in and out of cars etc. As long as we all have the trailers ready to go in the water then it should be slick...until a class of laser pilots descend that is.

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.
