Ribnut, its just my very humble opinion but for a great summer cruise with lots of pubs and some decent eateries you can't beat the Firth of Clyde. If you get the good conditions there are loads of places to explore and plenty of places to tie up and have a wander around.
Fantastic scenery too: great if you want some dramatic photos

Forget the Lake District: the 10mph speed limit has killed it stone dead

I think that the Cornish boys will back me up here (not too closely, I hope). The Fal Estuary has it all. Beautiful scenery, beaches, pubs and retaurants. Good marinas and launching. That's all without leaving the harbour, seriously! 72m of waterway within the Fal estuary. Leave the Carrick roads for the Helford (Frenchman's Creek), The Lizard or up to Fowey which is 18 each way of easy cruising. For the more ambitous there are the Scillies, 70m round trip of semi-offshore work. Blimey, the Fal tourist board ought to pay me for this.

Hey Garf, You're assumin' that we want you English tossers down 'ere! . Agreed it is a drag for you lot. A303 has been dug up again! As for the Solent, tried that when I trialed my boat. Sod that!! That is the M25 of boating, at rush hour, with nothing but blonde birds behind the wheel!!

Mollulnan is absolutely right - Cornwall is a fantastic area to go exploring with your RIB. With spectacular granite coastline (especially at the Lizard and Lands End)

I have personally cruised the whole of the south coast of Cornwall and some of the north coast and as soon as I get my new boat delivered I will be out there again finishing off the bits I haven't yet seen.

Mylor near Falmouth has a fantastic slip way which is free (you do need to pay to park your car and trailer) with a well stocked chandler's on site.

And from there a great days cruising can be had either in the Fal estuary itself or by going East to Fowey and on to Plymouth or you can go west to the Lizard and on to Lands End - and then there's the Scilly Isles.

If you decide to do the cruise from Falmouth to Plymouth - either on the way there or on the way back its worth taking a detour to the eddy stone rocks just to say you've been there - and on the way to the Scilly Isles there is wolf rock which is also worth a visit.

Anyway - once I get back on the water I will get exploring the north coast some more and keep you posted - there are some pictures in humbers rib gallery if you follow the link in my signature. (I've got some more pictures to post there but haven't got round to it yet - so check back in a couple of days.

You're a disgraceful pair of oul geezers.

gArf I guess you're the comedy King (since Rogue Wave lost his crown )

RW don't worry too much about the cold in the North Sea as you two shall end up in a far, far warmer place than that
