That's a bit steady looking for the "morning after"...

I seem to recall that there was a particularly fine young Slovakian lady tending bar. She had an unusual affinity for "Octomore". Luckily I wasn't buying...

Hi BAM BAM

The nearest slip to the site is at Hayle (about 3 miles), Loads of parking and 12/launch (inc parking for car and trailer) or they do a weekly one. Depends whether he is there or not. Petrol station and shops only 300 yards away.No pontoons but very sheltered being about 3/4 of a mile inland, down the Hayle river to st Ives bay with close access to St ives, Carbis bay (no beaching at the other beaches) and Godrevy lighthouse and beyond.

You can also launch at St. Ives, but don't recommend this unless you are leaving the boat in the Harbour during your stay. I think its about 85 for the week.

Penzance is about 11 miles away and this is an excellent place to launch. Free Launch if under 20', Commercial parking only 7.40 (2 spaces) Toilets/shops close by. Wide slip with Pontoon and on leaving the Harbour the whole of Mounts bay to cruise in. We even pulled in at St Michael's Mount and then on the beach at Marazion for a quick drink at the beach bar there. You can of course leave Penzance and head South/west passing Mousehole and Lamorna heading towards Lands end.

You are only 40 mins drive to Falmouth and there have been loads of discussions on here recently about where to launch and things to do in that area.

I could go on but i'd be here for days. If you want to discuss in more detail then send me PM with your number and I'll give you a call.

I've put some pics on ,on the beach at Marazion opposite the mount,launching at Penzance harbour, cruising between Penzance and st michaels mount and st ives harbour.

Best wishes

Jake

David is your contact at Blackness.

Brilliant Richard, just looked at their site and it looks excellent. I quite fancy Dittisham, cant see any ref to Blackness but only looked briefly. Thanks.

I think Maximus originally started this thread with the idea of rib friendly establishments ie, pubs, restaurants etc, that are accessible by boat and It seems to have broadened into holiday cottages and campsites where you can take the rib so if agreed I'll start a thread to cover the rib friendly holiday thing and let this thread get back to what it was intended for. Is that ok with you Maximus or would you prefer to let it run as it is?

boat friendly establishments

Picture one Gazelle hotel, Jetty is almost fully tidal.

Picture two, Anglesey Arms Caernarfon.

Picture three, halfway house port dinorwic

All on the menai straits, N Wales, places to tie up and welcoming of boaters, even in waterproofs and life jackets!
