That's a lot more scary than it sounds, you can do it by mobile phone and it's a short hop. Go straight across from the Camber, heading to the Right of the big Green Lightship.

So it will go something like this
"QHM rib Tigga permission to cross camber to ballast over"
QHM will respond either approving the crossing or asking you to wait.
"QHM rib Tigga thank you, out
