Mud? Really ? Lol

Doesn't matter what the tide state is, the water is almost always brown above the kincardine bridge.

Hi all, If I can get the boat finnished and the trailer built by then we would be interested in joining in. Just one question, is it the same up here as south of the border where you have to have a BWB licence for the boat to use it on the rivers and if so what do they cost.

Will I need to get an ATIS number from OFCOM to use the radio on the river? Also what are the plans for the return trip down river as we will be towing the RIB to the launch site with the motorhome and then going a bit further up the coast (Latheron Wheel just south of Wick) for a few days.

The plans are still in planning stage , will post more when I get them.

ATIS is only used in some European Waterways, so there is no need for this in UK unless you are going to these countries.

The River Forth to Stirling is Tidal anyways...

Hi all, please add my name to the trip. I will probably launch at port Edgar. Look forward to it.
