sunday trip out . Intention was to head out to the eddystone rock from plym then to salcombe.
Unfortunately we hit a fog bank 1mile out. It did clear as we approached the eddystone.

Looks like you had a nice day out. I have fond memories of the waters around Plymouth from when I lived there.

Do you have any more pictures of your RIB?
I also have a crompton and although mine is different from yours I can see many similarities in the pictures you have posted.

Its rather sad to see the old lighthouse next to the new one.

Great shots, especially of the fog!

RIBase
John Smeaton's tower is now (what remains) near Plymouth. It replaced Winstanleys original wooden and metal tower that vanished in a storm in 1699? taking the rather eccentric Mr Winstanley with it.

Ah but Mr Smeaton was a Leeds lad
Good and proper no nonsense Yorkshire engineering at its best! And the so called father of modern civil engineering
Infact he even used Leeds locally quarried mill stone grit for many of his other works and lighthouses around the world as he knew it could be relied on ,
No glass of wine for him they reckoned, ,,,a pint of ale and a pork dripping sandwich
