Andy,

Not a problem I'll bring my scuba kit.

Post with a bit of notice and I'll do my best to join you. I'm probably only available saturdays from the 19th November up till xmas.

Seriously it would be a good idea if the tides are a bit low when you visit ventnor to either wear a drysuit or waders and moor up outside the harbour if its not too rough. If you want any more info PM me. Ventnor is a pretty cool place visit. And the food is good and very cheap at the Winter Gardens. Or you can just siton the sea front at one of the other pubs and enjoy the scenery.

Might also be worth phoning the day before you go just to make sure the harbour taxi will be available.

Nick.

Nice one, Nick.

If we firm up a date, I can call them and check it out. I think it would be a good photo op if we could moor inside the Haven itself. But I have never been there by water so don't know how the land lies.

I am up for it.

Two places that spring to mind:

http://www.harbourviewhotel.co.uk/
http://www.thehambrough.com/accommodation.php

We could do a 'deal'.

Given the notice sounds like a good idea.
