That will mean a bridge lift at Yarmouth at around 11:00, well into the flood tide. My main concern will be any boats with low powered engines being able to punch the tide coming through the bridge, but I don't know enough about the boats attending to be able to tell if it's an issue or not. I would suggest that anything with a small engine like a BMC 1.5 could find it a slog to get through Haven bridge.

Cheers

I would be a bit wary of taking Moonlight Shadow on to the sea even though I would love to do it, because of lack of power, the top speed we have achieved is 9.2mph on Breydon and it is a large cruiser.

Well I can't do much about the tide times with relations to bridge lifting times at Lowestoft - come to think - I can't do owt about them  Frown

Hopefully I will find time this weekend to study the tidal flows and report accordingly


Btw - 'B.A' is absolutely flat out at around 10mph and I don't run her at that speed much if at all unless I really have to - but had to for about 2 x Hrs on our way south approaching south dock marina on the Thames  - bit touch and go was that one   Gasp

Sorry Griff, I've been an idiot. We will be going through Haven bridge with the ebb tide, not punching the flood as I had thought! Doh!

The tidal flows once at sea will be around 1-2 knots which we will be punching, but I don't think that will be worrying anyone!

I take your point Griff, but my seamanship skills wouldn't even register against yours. Smile

There is a letter and Editorial reply in the May addition of Anglia Afloat.

Captain Howe.

The Eagle may soar majestic,
but you don't suck a Stoat
into your jet engines.
Please leave the water and
banks as you would wish to
find them.

Regarding publicity, there is a completely free online magazine called Motor Boat Owner (www.motorboatowner.co.uk) that may be worth approaching? It's run by a guy that used to work for Motor Boat Monthly.

Cheers
