A little quicker and the bow doesn't lift so much with just one. Planes well with me and the Mrs. Handles well.

I've been down to Portsbridge this evening and walked from the western end to the railway bridge. I arrived there just under an hour after low water, and the creek had water along the full length (and was clearly flowing in from the western end). The shallow and most narrow point was where the high footbridge crosses both the A27 and the creek, about 400m from the Portsbridge end. At that point, there was no more than a few inches of water, and a collection of bikes, shopping trolleys and other debris was clearly visible.

Judging by the high water marks on the concrete parapets of the bridges, I'd estimate a high water draft of 8 to 10 feet, so even if we assume those high water marks are on a 5m tide, I reckon we should have no less than a 6ft (1.8m) under us at high water on the 7th.

At the second footbridge, which is close to the railway bridge and about 2/3 of the way along the creek, a number of metal or wooden poles protrude from the mud and stand near upright to a level that would see them just below the surface at high water. They are close to the southern parapet of the centre span of the footbridge but I'd advise staying well away from that side of the span when we make our passage.

I didn't continue to the Eastern Road (Langstone Harbour) end as the light was starting to fade, but Google satellite images suggest there shouldn't be any difference in draft through this section, so long as we follow the channel.

Hope this is helpful and I'm certainly more confident having walked the route.

Careful what you wish for, it might be a case of the blind leading the blind!

Seems that the creek was only re-opened to navigation in 1970, and named the Dunkirk Memorial Navigation Channel in honour of the small boats that had evacuated troops from Dunkirk (see Memorials and Monuments in Portsmouth (Port Creek Re-Opening and Dunkirk)

Rather appropriate then for us to take a convoy of small boats through it.

So I reckon it should be known as the Dunkirk memorial sib run.???..if we do it once, then we can do it every year!!! (Like nacho run, jolly to the fully, bembridge beach bbq, round iow, round Anglesey etc)

Forecast is looking great, but I have a bit of a problem. Picked up my new car today but can't get a towbar fitted until the 15th. Hoping I can get a mate to tow the RIB down to Warsash slip. I live only 2.5 miles away but it's a long way to pull it by hand

Hi AJ, many thanks for that. Were you planning to launch at Warsash though? I wouldn't want you to go out of your way. Would be good to have a backup plan though as I'd be gutted to miss this trip (having been unable to do the round IoW recently).
