I'll be there. I keep a RIB on the Thames in Battersea but can only move it within two hours of high tide.

What time are you meeting at Putney. I recommend going down river of Wandsworth Bridge where there is no speed limit!

Plan to meet (be in the water) about 9am a Putney and then go down towards the barrier.

My mobile is 077483 34683 and will listen out on ch16 call sign Ahoy Matey. What working channel do you use?

Yes we are interested - could you supply any more info about he launch site (if it involves any intricate reversing may be a problem - still getting used to going forwards around corners!)

Being 'Down South' not sure about what replies I might get calling 'Ahoy Matey' on Channel 16!

We have a Yam 550 with Yamaha F115 four stroke.

Just realised I'm supposed to be in Windsor on Friday night so I'll make sure I get out of it.

I'll come up river and meet you near the slipway at 9.00am. I'll be listening on CH16. Don't have preference as to working channel, whatever is free (which is most of them on the Thames!). I don't have a call sign as only have portable VHF but boat is called 'Shara' so will answer to that.

I will need need to be back at Battersea by just before 1.00pm though but this shouldn't be a problem.

Might meet you down river if its a nice day. Would launch from Bargehouse lane near the Woolwich ferry as its easier to get to than Putney for us Essex boyz!

Recommend you monitor VHF 14 (think its 14) as well as 16 for Woolwich radio (Thames VTS). Also believe there is still a control at one of the central london bridges where as courtesy you should call for permission to proceed.

My callsign is Yellow Tang. Will let you know nearer the time.

Cheers,
Alan W

It's on the boat launch site... Link is pasted earlier in this thread.

I'm an expert reverser if ya get stuck (I have a 25ft caravan), the bigger the trailer the easier it is.

Wots wrong with Ahoy Matey...?

Nigel

Looks theres 2 of us with Yam Ribs, I'll Listen on 16 & 14.

Jools

Are you still up for it? are you bringing your boat or hopping in mine?
