Thanks John

Our size is:-

Length - 24m
Beam - 6.4m
Draft 2.4m (but we like 2.7 to be on the safe side!)



Last time I went in was before the Barrage and the lock keepers eyes popped out when we pulled into the marina lock! I think he was used to looking down into the lock, and for once he was looking up!

Last time we tied up along "Town Quay Pontoon" - looking at the plan at

Spirit send off

Forget the town quay pontoon, there isnt one!
You will be able to get into Penarth Marina no problem and I will proberbly make arrangments for you to berth outside our exibition centre just in case someone else's plan goes wrong. I am a firm beliver in catering for sod's law which is proberblt the best thing to do at this moment in time.

Back to the top with this thread.

Shall I have the honour of .....counting down!!!

8.5 days to go before the 31st March

Did I say days?
Have no fear, I meant 8.5 weeks!!!

Almost had a heart attack myself there.

61 days...that sounds like ages away though. I will count in weeks untill the final month.

The only way is up. - to the top of the page!

Just under 8.5 weeks to go now.

How come people are not on here more often?

We are almost at the 1000 views stage - is that a record in itself?

Hi Nadia,
I'm here lots, promise!!!!
Well, to keep on topic, I've taken the plunge (not literally I hope! ) to sort out accomodation on the Pride of Bristol and I've got my boat insured via Rib.net. Thanks for the contact John!
Cheers,
Andy.

Cheers

Well folks,

Here I am again...
Alan P,
Do you plan to cross Med ? Cause if you do tell me when are you going to catch Pireas, Greece, or any marina near that.
As you realize it is rather inpossible for me to be there on the 31 of March.
Any ways accept all my best wishes for a successful journey.
From nearly frozen (25 days ago, and 22 Celcius today) Athens.

Michael
