Ah, we have the Thames on our doorstep (almost!)

Never taken current boat on the Thames (4kts speed limit), but I used to take my old SIB on the river. 53 to license a 3.6m inflatable for the year, tho' - No license or speed limit below Teddington.

I quite often come over to Southend for lunch

When you see me remind me to tell you about the time i had to come over from Sheerness because someone was being swept out to sea from the pier head and they could not launch the lifeboat!

Anyway, essex boys, i'm up for a blast over at some point and a meet-up. I've never made the East Cost cruise yet, always seams to clash with something, but not too many miles away.

Daniel,
Back in March when we met up on the Isle of Wight cruise we discussed a Calais trip, are you still up for it sometime?

I have launched from Folkstone before, but the slip and parking was a nightmare. Have you launched from Dover?
