Thanks for your advice
I just went up under orwell bridge and back the other day. Seems a big stretch of water for 6 knots
But then I too used the water ski area friday to give the boat a test. Its still at SYH at the mo just having an engine service, but that was the first time on the river orwell.
Just out of interest Orwell Boy and Bigo, you sound like you know the area. Any favorite places to visit, easy access beaches etc etc ?
I assume in a rib most areas are accessible at most states of the tide.
