Be aware of floating debris on the Mersey. Particularly after heavy rains there are all kinds of object, plenty of logs.
Where are you launching from? The slip at New Brighton requires registration with the council, you will need level 2 powerboat.
It's busy with large ships but you can monitor them with the Marine Traffic app.
Good luck, I'm waiting until the winter cod season when the slip is un manned :-)
