Hi Zookeeper, try the link below for all the info you will need. Windermere has a 10 nautical mile speed limit dropping to 6 in some places so you wont be able to blat about. There are wardens everywhere, its like ditch crawling (river cruising) but with nice scenery. I go twice a year for a week at a time but I don't bother taking the boat with me anymore.

The best place to launch is at Ferry Nab where there is parking and trailer storage. Enjoy!

Cheers!
