How far up the Hamble at High Tide

How far up the Hamble can you get in a sib if you plan to arrive at the top end at high tide and how late can you leave roughly to get back to Hamble le Rice and still be ok for water

At high tide you can easily reach the Horse and Jockey pub in Curbridge, which is at the end of the right hand fork of the Hamble. As long as you leave mid tide you should have no problems, once you get to the Country Park pier/Eastlands boat yard there are no issues, so as long as you get there before Low tide you will be fine.

Not too sure about the left hand fork towards Botley, I have been 1-2 miles up there but only at high tide.

Good Luck

Andy

This is where I use my 4M SIB. If you go left at the fork it can get a little dicey. you can get right up to Botley if you are brave but theres lots of underwater branches to catch your prop shaft on. its much more fun on a paddle board.
Tones of mullet up there if your fishing (and I do mean tones !)

If you take the right don't hang around too long as it dries out pretty quickly. Theres enough time for 2 very quick pints (of lemonade).

Disclamer: I would not appempt either if you have a long prop shaft !

This may help but I can't guarantee that it's correct.
