Hi,
Our SR 4M will not be ready in time as I have found that I need to replace the transom and the front half of the floor, and being disabled I can only work on it when my pain levels allow (not very often at the moment). We will be bringing our Shetland Family Four up instead as we do not want to miis this trip.
If anyone wants a lift up river and back we could do with some help launching and retreiving the "Angela G". Let me know in advance so that I can put the spare lifejackets onboard.

Ok - since this is definitely going ahead unless bad weather - proposal is to launch at port Edgar and head up and meet the board coming out Thr canal system.

I need numbers, for reception at Stirling and number if boats.

Looks like I need to go a list lol

regards

Scott

So need to know who I'd going?

We will be staying overnight and sleeping "onboard" as we may not be able to get back downstream when the tide is out. On fresh water we need a minimum of 4ft to navigate with any degree of safety.

I'll be there Saturday, but can't be sure yet whether I can make Sunday or not, so I may have to make it a one day voyage. Would a Saturday rescue assist on the way upriver be any use if I can't stay for Sunday?

If I can do the overnight I won't be needing a "campsite" if that helps the planning.



I do have to ask as high water at Stirling is likely going to be around the 14:00 mark (that's an estimate - before anyone moans at me for going aground!! ) and it isn' a full spring tide afternoon - there may be an argument for an earlier departure? - It's 30 odd miles from PE to the Rowing Club, of which only the first 13 or so are "sensibly" deep.....
