As many of you have rightly surmised will shortly be showing cruising notes for trailer boats which may or may not include refueling points. It all depend what people send in. The general idea is that you will be able to click on an information tag to get lots of useful info such as friendly pubs and great anchorages/beaches for smaller boats. I've talked about it in the next edition of Rib International so it will have to be ready for November. I will post a message when we are ready to receive your contributions. Really useful contributions merit a free printed copy of the national launch guide that we are redesigning with better maps and other features to make it a lot more user friendly. These are available at the bargain price of £9.90. One to put on the Christmas list.

The bottom line is if you're planning a trip offshore and your main method of transport is a petrol engine your going to have to plan ports of call far more closely. Whereas if the engine is diesel your pretty much assured that there will be a diesel pump ( which hopefully has diesel in it !! ).

Keep asking the questions, if you donít ask then youíll never get any wiser.

There are a lot of people who frequent these forums with lots of hard sea miles and love RIBing, be it in a 4m or 15m boat, and will give advice freely

Regards and good luck

Your Profile doesn't give much away either does it?

Why don't you tell us who you actually are, and what you are up to?
Maybe then we can REALLY help you.

Take a look at bears web pages, the link is on his profile.
Back on topic , you can get unleaded at Lymington Yacht Haven, and also at the Berthon fuel barge on the Lymington river. After you have filled up, Bear, come abit further up the river to Haven Quay, and well show you a few Scorpion Ribs.

Bear, no offence -- we're just being nosey! But with a track record like yours I can't see you buying a RIB and not doing much with it
