Would love to come up as we too have a pro 7 and are planning a day out on the Thames but am working.

Would be great if you could let me know how you get on launching there and also on the river itself, will all be of benefit for when we make the journey up

Hd a great day out , trim and tilt has started playing up, wont let me trim up when in motion it just trims its self all the way down and wont let it get on the plane. Managed to fiddle with it a little and get it working coming back. Nice slipway at River lane 5 pounds return for Richmond Lock went as far as HMS Belfast , There is a Brazilian warship anchored alongside her. Advise to anyone thinking of it . There is not a lot of water the other side of Richmond lock at low water lol

Cheers

Glad to hear you had a good (apart from PTT). Was the launch slip ok for you. I note your comment of not a lot of water at low tide, but i take it you were still able to launch / recover.

Where did you manage to park and how far were you from Tower Bridge roughly.

Cheers, Matt.

PS, promise no more questions

yeah its fine to launch , recover at low tide, Prob best roping it up in a FWD car. I had my mate with his s60 just in case. Just might struggle getting back without trashing your prop i recorded 1.5ft of water coming back at some places. We got down to river lane at 0530 so there was plenty of parking along the road , when we got back cars everywhere so would struggle to park that was at 1400 Tower bridge is a bit of a way away not sure how far but lots to see.
