If you launch at Felixstowe and go round to the Deben be very careful of the tides as it cuts up very rough on the bar at the entrance. Doable but needs planning

Yes, I remember the fearsome bars on both the Deben and Ald.

Willfunch - was the photo at Ramsholt?

The Felexstowe Ferry slipway is on the Deben. If you launch there to travel up the Deben no need to go near the bar. The tides and current are very strong though. This is my home ground and where I do 90 % of my boating.


This is when I went round from the Deben to the Ore last year

Sure sorry. I imagined he'd be laughing at the marina by the port

The Photo was at Ramsholt indeed.

Going over the bar was ok, just kept a close eye on the depth.

Anytime after 1 hr each side of low water should be ok but as stated just keep an eye on your depth finder
