Yep - that sounds fine! - you beat me to it

We are looking to get berthing near to the pub for the party - for all you alcoholics or i expect we will run a rib "booze cruise" between the ship and the pub

Somebody always volunteers to be rib cox!!

So as Nadia says - whilst I'm on holiday next week - she will be taking bookings for me - so give your names to her!!

Some big names are staying on the PoB!!

Cheers
Jools

Hello Jools

Was PoB berthed in Brixham at any time last Summer?

Keith,
Not sure where he has gone or if he is "allowed " access to a computer while he is away - but Jools is on holiday this week.

Hi - I'm back from my hol in Spain - the wife steared me clear of any internet cafes for my RibNet Fix!!

So...

Keith - POB may well have been in Brixham - en route to Portsmouth - we were the "Guard Ship" for the "International Festival of the Sea" controlling all visitors to the event - hard work - but worth it.

Graham - As BT have cut off my ISDN line (don't ask) and now seem unable to provide ADSL or HomeHighway and I've been away I havn't had chance to post any further pics. As Nadia says www.prideofbristol.org gives you a general idea of the ship. Is this OK or shall I post some further pics (from work!)

Everyone else - Have you all got your plans sorted for the S-o-C send off? - 5 places are taken so far on the Pride of Bristol!

Cheers

Jools . Welcome back

No further bookings since you have been away - hope you had a good break.

Keep me in touch re bookings on the POB.
I think people are starting to finalise their plans...and will make accomo arrangements.

Some people are looking at travelling on the Friday; and I am just wondering if that is what is keeping people from taking you up on your offer - that you will only be there the Sat night.

Any chance of coming over Friday, this being a bank holiday?

Jools,
Not sure when you last checked the SOC send-off thread.
We have now set up base at the Cardiff Bay Yacht Club! NOT Penarth Marina as previously stated.

Better deal - check out the thread.(15.00) all in for the week-end

Anyway, my questions to you:
1. Would you be ok to berth the POB at the CBYC, they have the space but NO electric hook ups on the pontoons - do you require this?
2. Would you go to Penarth Marina if you need elect hook ups?
3. Would you consider coming over the Friday (bank holiday) or is Sat the earliest?

Please keep in touch.
Cheers

ps How are the bookings going for your accomo?

Yep CBYC sounds fine - as long as there is space for us! and there something solid to moor to? - Also remember we need 3m of water. - Otherwise maybe we could anchor just off-shore in the bay? How much would berting at Penath be? - Do you have any "contacts"

We don't need power - we have 2 big generators on board!

We plan to be on board on the Friday night in Bristol - and then come accross on the Saturday.

I have just rung Bristol Marina to find out about costs of launching in Bristol on Friday, staying on POB in Bristol on Friday night, escorting us accross to Cardiff on Saturday. Web site for the marina is

http://www.boatlaunch.co.uk/Site_dataPage19.html

I have used this - very wide concrete slip - plenty of parking - very good.

Price is
6.50 for 24 hr licence for boats over 4m

This covers launch on slip, Parking for car and trailer, river licence, Berthing and lock fees. - Bargin

So for the weekend - just double this - 13.

Cost for staying on PoB - 25 pppn
Currently - 5 + me on Sat
possibly 2 + me on Fri

Jools

As Nadia has now managed to sort out the facilities in Cardiff we have decided to go there Friday. In this way the car, with all of our gear etc wil be on hand.

However, we still would like to stay aboard POB on Saturday night as arranged if this is still OK.

I note that some people are asking about a cruise for the Saturday - and I think it would be good to come out to meet POB and escort her into Cardiff.

When you know your course etc could you let us have the waypoints / times etc so that we can arrange to meet up with you. Also, I take it you have a radio watch on 16 so that we could call you up?

Graeme
