a 1st rate idea ! No trailers - just boot fulls of SIBS..... I always wanted to go up Wareham river in Poole Harbour - but someone nicked it before I could....

Or out to swanage past Old Harry Rocks - can be rough water - but chose the right day and it would be ace !

I'd be up for that if it fits in with other commitments How about a circumnavigation of Portsmouth - that's a good SIB outing

Great - we might as well carry on all the way round back to Portsmouth - don't want to get bored for rest of the day :-)

I'd be interested in a "small boats cruise" on West Coast assuming those with harder bottoms would be welcome. My cruising speed, size etc - puts me closer to SIBs than most RIBs.

I'm game for a trip in the Solent sort of area. The old Harry rocks does sound good if we choose a good day? The cat sib will handle it I'm sure no matter what the weather decides to do, it's my stomach that is usually the weakest part of the chain!

Alternatively a Portsmouth circumnavigation could be fun - langstone harbour does get quite a tidal run though so the 2.5hp 2.7m air deck will have to stay in the shed for that one!

For the less adventurous I've nipped from lymington to the folly in cowes for a pint in the sib before, that's a nice trip

like polwart our small rib is also more suited to a cruise with sibs. would be interested in anywhere in the south or south west.

I have a hard bottom, but at 3.6m, I'm more like a SIB too. North Wales?
