Shaz - the slip is fairly narrow but they now have a very good floating jetty - so once launched we can easiliy get to the RIB and of course with the SIB we can just cheat and carry it!!!
Yep The Griffin still has plenty of people to laugh at you
- hence my cunning plan to practise in October out of season before all the crowds return
Will take some piccies even if we don't end up on the water.
Maybe we could organise a Ribnet trip there - I know a very cheap and cracking campsite we can use with easy access to Dale - would be something to look forward to over the winter
Bern - many thanks for the suggestions, from the school trips I use to be involved in on the Lord Hercum Ex RNLI from Dale Fort to the Islands it was always fun!! and that was just as a passenger- and I've never seen sea mist come in so fast as it can there, taught me some very valuable lessons on using a compass!!
Don't know the River at all so thank you for the pointers there - it does sound as if what ever the weather we could use either boat with care and planning
