Carrick roads - advice needed

Hi guys,

A bit of advice for those with experience of the Carrick Roads, (perhaps one for Mollers)

We are down in Cornwall again this August and was planning on do a little trip in me SIB from Falmouth up to the Pandora Inn. Was going to do this as a surprise for the wife on our wedding anniversary (good eh ) she wanted to go last year. Unfortunately, due to the fire, that didn't happen.

Trouble is, wedding anniversary is on the 23rd and using the RNLI tide predictions in their diary it looks as though the HW is approx 09.28 bst and 21.56 bst.

So the 2 questions are:-

1) Does the pontoon there dry out and if so how far away etc?

2) Is it shale or muddy around there?

The reason I ask is that I have the Launch wheels on the back of the Honwave and was wondering if I could drop the wheels and pull the SIB up to the pub.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Jake

Hi Jake, yes it dries out to about 30ft off of the pontoon at the bottom of a neap.
It's muddy crap that I wouldn't drag a sib over.
Go for the Ferryboat over at the Helford. The food is loads better, especially the shellfish. You can raft up on our mooring and cadge a lift off of the ferry or use our dinghy and it's less of a tourist trap than the Pan.

Hi BUD,
Sorry but can you explain a little. When you say "our mooring" and cadge a lift off of the ferry or use our dingy, what do you mean?

Sorry for my ignorance, thanks in advance

Jake

The Helford landed gentry have exclusive use of deep-water moorings in the river. Ask Lord Mollers nicely and he'll send one of the staff (probably Groomy, the butler) out in the motor launch to collect you and your good wife.
