I feel a good idea to ask a bunch of ( experianced/ qualified ? ) ribnobbers ....

Some local knowledge can be worth weeks spent looking at a chart.

WillK just gets carried away some days ....

Good luck doing it - take loads of pics and post them here. We all love to see what people are up to ...

I'm off to Yarmouth ( and hopefully back ) tonight in the dark in my little 4m RIB ...

Fixed that for you

It's interesting. You and I are similarly qualified and yet we have very different approaches to developing a passage plan. I agree that communicated local knowledge is a very important supplement to a passage plan, but it's not a substitute for it. Incidentally, I have no gripe with the OP, but rather those who would wave him off into what, for him at least, appears to be the Unknown.

I reckon we would end up doing pretty much the same things . I am some what obsessive about planning if its a new / unknown or slighlty ' risky' area.

Generally - look at chart , think about it , look at it again - look at options for what may happen if things go wrong & where they may go wrong ie hazards on the way and how far I could be off track before I hit a hazard (margin for error) , look again and think about headings & leg times / max fuel burn etc , try and find someone who knows the area and ask them, then go back to chart again , draw all over it or a copy of it etc , chart plotter etc , look out window ( vital ! ) check weather etc & then finally off we go ! ( and I then just rely on pilotage and hefty amount of common sense/ caution )

Everytime I go out I view it as a trip into the unknown, maybe thats just my nature ?

We could start a whole new ' what do you do for passage planning thread ? '

I believe main lesson to be learnt here is for the experienced sea farers amongst us to be careful with our wording. the last scenerio we want is for novices NOT to ask questions in fear they may look a fool.
No beef with you Willk.

And just to add to the fun...
We did Saltash - skerries and return on Tuesday this week. Great weather, sun fish, baskers.
Lots of small pot buoys around Start Point and sea fog. Lannacombe also heavily potted.
Take it steady and keep a good watch ahead. Wind against tide at Start and Prawle always needs to be considered.
Gentle pace is one hour between harbour entrances.
Enjoy

Equipment

What comms, nav and emergency equip are you carrying?

Beware of tide and wind at Start Point.

Familiarise yourself with Salcombe Harbour (Wolf Rock, The Bar etc)
Salcombe Harbour Pilot Notes & Charts, Salcombe Marina Pilot Notes & Charts


Be safe and enjoy.
