Roughly how far it will be there and back? I've only used this outboard a couple of times on the river, so I'm not sure on consumption. Any idea how different a 40 is to a 25? I might need another tank?!

Good to hear some of you are coming to visit our neck of the woods,

Just a shame that i wont be there as we don't open on Sundays

As for parking there are no parking restrictions on the embankment (Just watch the tide - always interesting to see which car floats the longest though )

One other thing - mind out for the war canoes

Have a good day out

I'm going to Southampton on Sunday, not sure if I can do Saturday now though as we're struggling for a baby sitter and he's too small for this trip!

Just picking up a bit late on this topic - definitely interested if I can get up there - if so I will be coming with my 8 year old, the Zodiac 340 and it's Tohatsu 9.8.

Is it man enough for that busy stretch of the Thames??

That should be fine, provided you don't load it up so much that you can't get on the plane!
