Will have a look at those next week..
Took her to sandwich in the end, was nice and easy to launch 2 hours before high tide.. All I need now is a bigger outboard as was quite sluggish coming back against the tide :/

If you can get in at fordwich it's a nice day trip to sandwich via grove ferry for lunch. Or the other way around.

I'd say 2 hrs fordwich to grove, and a bit less grove to sandwich.

Get someone to drop you at fordwich to avoid parking - say 5 hours before HW sandwich and meet you at sandwich when you get there.

Sounds like a good day out.. Will definitely take that route hopefully before summer comes to an end.

Any recommendations on where to buy used outboards and what sort of price they usually are? I have a 5hp but could really do with at least a 15hp on it.. Can take up to a 25..

Wayne Maddox Marine - now at manston ? Mob: 07976 635503. He usually has a good selection.

There is also a couple for sale next to my unit in Ramsgte "Marlec marine" 11 military road but I didn't pay particular attention to HP or price but worth a look?

PM me a contact number. I might join you on a trip, and I have a friend who's new to boating looking to get more experience meet up with people - he could borrow my small 3m SIB if I'm unavailable / has a 5.8 humber himself.
