You mean the A91 (Stirling bypass)? There is also a Footbridge between Stirling & Cambuskenneth that must be on a par with the A91 bridge.

Methinks depth of water is likely of more concern to us ribs!

Anyone got a forward firing sounder?

yes - A91 road bridge is the one, our forward facing sonar is aka as a keel yacht

It's about 11 miles, from the clacky bridge to Stirling rowing club. So should be easy done at right tide!

I think the idea of the cruise is to try to get the area dredged etc, proving boat would use it...alot of the boats are coming out of the canal at Grangemouth.

might have boats from Anster and us from Elie.

I think this is to shallow for our shetland 610 but happy to provide any help we can i.e. food and drink at the end?

....or 3 miles as the crow flies....


Also might be worth having a word with the Forth & Clyde Canal Soc. - They took their scaled down puffer up there last (last again?) year.

It is them that is organising it! Seagull Trust & FYCA inland waterways Convenor.

We might be able to get safe haven in the canal system for people coming by sea.

Sounds like fun depending on the weather. But the brown water puts me off.
