Just back from an awesome week on the Dart.

Not been there for two years and it still remains my SIB Heaven. Love the place. Super SIB friendly and lots to see and do up river or down and out to sea. There is nothing like simply walking off to your SIB each morning left moored at Dittisham quay overnight - just like a real boat! No inflating, unloading, launching. Just pootling down to Dartmouth in the early morning sun watching the river come to life.

We had some great trips round to Brixham, Start Point, Blackpool Sands etc and up to Totnes as well as lots of pootling about the harbour. Aerotec and 15 Merc awesome as ever. PS: there was another Aerotec at the double steps pontoon one day - anyone here?

Glad it went well Max, great pics. We are just a few weeks away from our South Devon hols and very much looking forward like you to have in the Aerotec ready to use each day. Not on a pontoon in our case but in the front garden just one house away from a near private slip.

We hope to be visiting Torbay and Brixham but not as far round as Start Point... which I remember from my teens sailing back from Guernsey to Dartmouth in the dark knowing we were nearly back when rough water off Start Point threw everyone out of bed.

Ahh right - yes, a little too far onto Dartmouth etc from there - we've been as far as Torquay and would like to get to Salcombe but maybe a bit too far in one hit without company.

Teignmouth to Brixham is a fair few NM's hugging the coast as it is.

Teignmouth to Brixham is only about 40 minutes max if you go straight across the bay from Thatchers rock.

At the double steps? I saw you checking the different set ups but did not stop to chat, maybe next time? Yours looked very shiny and new.
