RIBase
Plymouth yesterday

Had a great day out with the tribe yesterday running out from Saltash slip. Managed 18nm at 0.7l per nm which considering the amount of time at 10knots was quite good really.

Mod plods thought we were a tad close to the submarines on the way back in and asked us to move over, must have thought that a pissed up old git was on the helm due to the dodgy course that was being steered and up and down speed changes - the guy's face was a picture when he came alongside and saw Aaron (5) on the stick!! Quick change from big bloke about to board to please move over a touch sir

More importantly we had a great lunch at Plymouth dry stack - moored up at the pontoon and tea was served along with pasties, cheesy chips and the biggest doorstop bacon sandwich ever - access at all states of the tide (I think) and well worth a visit.

On the way down the sound (11.30 ish )we followed a rib with a chap talking pictures - including a few of us with the kids in the bow.

Anyone on here by any chance?? If so have they come out well and could I have a copy please?

4.5m ish 60 ish on the back, 4 blokes on board, the one taking pics was in a red boat suit. Helm was in shorts.

Might have been red / orange tubs. But slept since then

Not us then. We were on the north side right on the edge of the exclusion zone tied up to a small cruiser. I heard there were some clowns in some small wooden thing that got their anchor lines tangled up with someone else's.

10 knts i guess you mean the speed limit down the river from saltash . just get the boat boat on a slow plane the mod plod never bother you at all , they realize that 10 kts in a small planing boat is an impossible speed for that distance
