  3. Notice to Mariners

    2018 03 Poole Bridge Harbour Traffic Lights.pdf No. 03/2018 15th January 2018 Poole Bridge Harbour Traffic Lights Mariners are advised that until final works are complete on the Poole Lifting Bridge only one set of harbour traffic lights will be working on each side (Upstream/downstream) of the bridge. During this period the green lights will not function. Lights displayed will either be all red (vessels not to proceed) or red with amber (vessels proceed with caution). Mariners are reminded of their obligation to comply with these traffic signals and to navigate with extreme caution when transiting the bridges whilst maintaining a good lookout.

  5. Alderney 2018

    That sounds incredibly high fuel consumption. When I had a 6 metre boat with a 150hp optimax on depending on weather and tides we used around 1 - 1.25 litres per mile so your .43 miles per litre is enormous. You would obviously have crew on board who would help with fuel and other costs? Can't remember what I used the last time I went to Alderney but I would expect to use around 5/600 litres on my boat for a 4 day trip. Your alternative might be to volunteer as crew for another boat.

    Do I spot a weather window appearing this weekend? hope it holds and if it does are you out?
  7. Alderney 2018

    Neil we have had a couple of 6 metre boats cross the channel in previous years so your Parker would have no problem making the journey your only problem may be fuel. You need to know what your fuel burn rate (worst case) is and calculate the distance from your berth to Bray harbour plus allow at least 50% extra for hoping wrecks and punching tides. You would need to check the availability of petrol. In previous years Mainbrace the quayside chandler has assisted with getting petrol from the local garage (just up the road) to the boat. A couple of years ago there was talk of them having quayside provision of petrol at their premises but not sure where they are with that. The petrol supply in alderney is/was doable but needs checking out. For others watching there is no problem with diesel as this is available quayside

    It's called selective evolution
  14. A new project named Blah ( could get messy)

    The new craft looks reasonably tidy. The only help I can give is that the new owner of the Wilson Flier moulds is a chap named Gary who lives Southampton way and posts on the WSF site. He seems a very helpful guy so may give advice on your particular model. Whatever you do with it good luck & may all your problems be minor ones. If you ever need a day on the water feel free to come out with us it may just give you a pick me (as in you) up

    When I use to do local authority works the monies had to be allocated against projects but not necessarily spent, don't know if their procurement procedures are the same now.
