Places to use a rib in West Midlands?

I have the use of a 6.5 RIB with a 225HP engine, plus a smaller 4.5 mtr with a 40hp, but am looking for somewhere to be able to use them within about an hour or so's drive of Kidderminster?

Any ideas?

your in the midlands so you have the choice of loads places within the hour for the smaller rib and its not far down the M5 to Bristol is it or even cardiff to have a great day in the 6.5
the coast is far better make the effort even if its couple hours away its worth it

Ok...but i am new to having to find places...any suggestions?

Also, where is good in/around Bristol to launch from?

I am used to doing most of my boating from Navy bases, mainly Whale Island and Jupiter Point......but not an option for me any more.
