Ribbing in The Wash

Hi, any of you guys been out in the Wash. I keep my rib up at my house in Scotland (Bute) where the boating is spectacular, but my day job and most time is spent in Boston Lincs. I was wondering if any of you had ribbed much out in the Wash and you thoughts on it.

Just figuring out if it's worth paying the ferry charge, extra petrol and the frustrating extra hour plus the journey takes when towing to use my boat in both areas.

Not ribbed in the wash but known it from a larger motor boat perspective... after your home cruising area you'll find it a bit uninteresting and muddy... some strong tides too but OK for a RIB! It's the nearest place I could go sibbing but I go a little further elsewhere.

Anywhere else you could suggest. Don't mind travelling a little.

I've launched out of wells a few times
You can have a blast up to blakeny
Did think of a blast across and up the Humber
Down side is sand banks and a 4 hour tide window and when it goes out its shallow

The Humber is grim with a capital GR! best avoided

I'm honestly leaning to leaving it up in Scotland. Thanks for everyone's input.

Is that because it's grey, muddy and boring, or due to particular navigational challenges?
