If it's an issue, let me know.

Thanks

1) Your name: Neil
2) Boat name: Vixen
3) Your launching site: Putney
4) Number of people on your boat: 6 before lunch, 5 after lunch
5) Number of people who want a place setting for lunch: 6
6) Roughly how high your A frame is from the water line: 1.6m - will have to check.
I've spoken to the Narrow Street Bar and they are Ok about us, but they'd like to know the numbers sooner rather than later.

The extra numbers wont be a problem.

Chris

Chris. I seem to remember reading somewhere not so long ago that if you want to use your boat on the Thames it must have it's names displayed prominantly on the bow. Mine is yet un-named, is this likely to be a problem?

My boat only has a SSR number and the port of registry on display, No body has ever said a word. I think you must have read something refering to the non tidal Thames. Commercial boats on the Thames do have some strange rules, Name, owners number, SSR, all text 5 inches high, clearly displayed.

Chris said he was trying to arrange something regarding parking and to watch this space...so might not be such a problem, will have to wait and see.

In terms of fuel, how much do people think is enough? Boat/engine dependant of course, but a rough idea would help. I reckong it's 17/18 miles from Putney embankment to the barrier, so let's say 40 miles return.

I have not had my rib long enough to calculate fuel consumption, but am reckoning on about 1litre per mile for a 5.4m searider with yammie 90. That said 6 people on board, so maybe more like 1.3 litres/mile to be safe. So based on that, 52 litres should cover it. And I can carry about 100, so should leave some in reserve.

Would we expect to go much further? Any comments on fuel load - enough, don't want to get caught out!!!

Cheers

Neil

Yes your more than welcome to come. I will "up" the numbers at the bar 4 lunch.

DINO - We will be going from Sunbury Cross (Junction 1 on the M3) and heading into town. You will be welcome to follow us into town. But we will be heading in early to reserve parking! (See below - perhaps you can help?) PM for a time to meet up and we can meet in the lay-by after Junction 1. (its before the elevated section going past the waterworks)

NEIL - As far as fuel goes I have a 135 and I don't use more than 50 litres if I take it easy. Perhaps you'd use more with a 2 stroke but I'm not familiar with your engine. The total distance can't be more than 40miles.

TRAILER PARKING - Across the top of the Embankment is an area for towing vehicles and trailers (see the attachment) So I'm gonna try to get there early and "bagsie" the lot. Hopefully its long enough for everybody. If it isn't trailers are normally OK if left in sensible places on the road. Trailers can also be left on the hard of the Embankment but there is nothing to chain your trailer to for security and the tide may partically cover it.

TIDES - (corrected for BST and non standard port at Putney Bridge)
0150 - 6.23m
0722 - 0.89m
1414 - 6.52m
2042 - 1.11m

TIME - Please leave yourself enough time to launch and be ready to leave for 1000

PROBLEMS - Please let me know if you can't make it or break down etc etc. My mobile is 07968 351 721
