Hamble river and the Southampton water tides
Can anyone offer advice, I am new to the water and have a small 2.9 meter rib with a yamaha 4HP outboard. I have currently used the rib for cruising up and down the Hamble River but I am not sure if the engine is powerfull enough for me to go out from the hamble River into the Southampton water or the Solent? Does anyone have any idea? The rib has a solid floor and an inflatable keel.
I just have visions on me not having enough power and getting sucked out to sea!!!
