>>>Moving on to Fowey
I wasn't sure how far Digger would want to travel but if he was willing to do the 42mls to Fowey that would be a great SIB outing.
I'd head to the Caffa Mill car park at PL23 1DF where there is a decent size easy to use concrete slipway and loads of space to set up. If it is busy in that car park just drop off your gear (or do a crafty set up which won't take long with a 3m) and move the van to the less busy unsurfaced car park 200m back up the road you came down.
You can explore up river and if you catch the tide right visit the Fisherman's Arms at Golant.
All the following places can be visited at any tide state...
Just a little up river from Caffa Mill over to the Penmarlam pontoon at Mixtow Pill to the café there.
Down river there is the pontoon at Berrills Yard where the lifeboat is moored. Great meals at the Crab Shack at the top of the pontoon and RNLI shed/shop to visit.
A little further down is the Albert Quay pontoon where you can visit the whole town with loads of shops and eateries.
A bit further towards the sea cross river to Polruan where there's another great pontoon and at the top the Lugger Inn.

Couple of pics attached. Caffa Mill slipways, large one is the ferry and public one adj. Pontoon at Mixtow Pill, café in trees at top of slip.
