Thames Marina's

Hi All

Does anyone know the contact numbers of any of the Marinas on the Thames as i'm trying to plan a cruise up from the east kent coast, up the Thames and over night in London somewhere. Obviously St Caths or Lime house spring to mind but does anyone know any more maybe further up i could use. Also if anyones got any usefull information or bits the've picked up i'd appreciate any advise anyone can give.

So far we have two boats going of course anyone that wants to join us is most welcome, we have not arranged a date yet but it will be withing the next few months.

Richard

Have a look at www.thames-tideway.co.uk

It's a bit out of date as I haven't been maintaining it recently, but it should be useful anyway. The only visitor moorings that I know of above Tower Bridge are at Chiswick Pier, which is not a bad place to stop.

If you pick up any new information in your research and or travels, please let me know.

Cheers
John

Thanks

John/Bob many thanks i have been looking at both John's site and the PLA site for information, and i was also really looking for any sound and experiences gained by other passage planning a trip up and then back down the Thames.

Plans

Hi Pepper

Plan is to whizz up and moor up somewhere near chelsea or beyound for the night, do the curry and beer thing somewhere local and b&b it for the night, then on the Sunday shoot back down to the start point.


Cheers

Richard,

I might well join you on this if i can make it - i can't make the BIBOA Thames Cruise and it's a great place to go, especialy from, say Herne Bay (i'd add an hour and zoom round from Margate).

If we get the tide right zooming inside Sheppy would be good, although the Sea Forts always make a dramatic waypoint if we are heading the other side of teh isle.

I've stayed at Chiswick Pier overnight, superb place, fairly secure, friendly staff etc. but not too much space. No real 'night life' too close but a big pub which does nice food.

Prehaps we could make this the SE Rib.Net meet?

Hi Dan

Your more than welcome to come along, infact your prior knowledge would be most welcome. At the moment i'm not sure yet on dates but suspect it will be mid to end of July or early August and so far we have three boats coming along (including mine). depending on tides we may put in at the scout hut on Whitstable beach as this is a safe place to leave cars and trailers, or it may have to be Herne bay as one of the boats coming is heavy and we always have trouble pulling it up and down the beach, not to sure about where we will stay overnight but your suggestion sounds pretty good so far.

I'll endevour to keep you informed as the arrangments progress.

Cheers

Richard
