Talking of a nice place to anchor.

Was the RIB with pale blue and grey tubes and a Mercury on the back in Bigbury Bay last week a Ribneter?

You picked a damn good week.

I think the Hotel must turn a blind eye or summat. There were easily 300 plus boats there on sunday, all shapes and sizes......besides.......it would take a great deal of effort to get this lot shifted and on Spring tide days as in pic 2, impossible until the tide is in.

I wondered why it was so quiet at East Head.

Must be your fan club, Robin.

we used to tow the rib up to swanage and drive around to studland bay , but now with a bit more experiance , we might attempted just driving the rib up there instead ,
anyone disagree or think its a bad idea

That's an excellent idea. Choose a summer day with very light winds as Poole Bay can get very bumpy and uncomfortable.

I did my first beach/anchor cruise the other week as well. I launched my RIB from the Mountbatten centre in Plymouth and cruised over to Cawsand beach.
A very nice little beach, not to crowded and 2 pubs within 200M.
Nice weather and a calm sea made for a very enjoyable day!
I would recommend it to anyone.

Where is Priory Bay

Where is Priory Bay. We go to Studland whenever the weather is good, anchor up have lunch and a snooze and sunbathe and a dip then wander back, great!!!

Let us know where Priory Bay is, might give it a try
