    I guess my point is that we tend to freak out a bit on the non-tidal by a couple of knots of flow. Some boats clearly are exposed badly to it but if you have a boat that can go on the tideway, I can't see the problem.
    My sentiments exactly. Or take the case where coastal boaters battle with 5 knots plus in marinas just to berth.

    Having never faced this situaltion before, can you still transit the river and locks on red boards?

    My fault ....

    I was updating the site , and clicked the wrong box. It can't have been up for longer than 2 or 3 minutes , you must have been quick.

    Yellow from Sandford down now , except Marlow which is red.

    Yes. The lockkeepers are required to hand you a little piece of paper if it is on reds but otherwise fine. Nice aspect is you get to know the lockkeepers. Much like when I forgot to display my registration....

    My earlier post was (of course!) meant tongue in cheek
    Certainly a few extra knots of flow is no issue going upstream, which is what I'll be doing this Saturday. And yes, I was being oh-so-good (and slow) on the tideway last weekend, Paul. Didn't seem right to floor it past the group just to get to the front, but it was tempting!

    That said, good point about the flotsam, but then I did manage to pick that up last weekend (in heaps!) - hopefully my luck should fair better now

    CORRECTION - Marlow to Cookham is Red (Cookham on RED)
