    Your choices are almost boundless but I'd definitely add the Walton Backwaters to the list, along with Woodbridge and Snape, including everything that leads to them. You're going to have a busy season!

    Might mention that the Kent Stour has a place with a Pub called, Plucks Gutter, well worth visiting I say , but be very carefully how you pronounce it ?

    Hamford water - around the island. (Arthur Ransome's 'Secret Water') and surrounding creeks.
    Ore and Alde, Butley river, Iken Cliffs and Snape.
    Up to Colchester.

    It'll take years to cover all the places listed above!

    No. You don't want to go there. There's hardly any room and there's a massive risk from the explosives place nearby. There's not even a pub. You'll be kept awake by the seals.

    Snape is lovely and if you go, make sure you visit the maltings.

    I enjoyed the Medway whilst there, you can make that as rural or as busy as you like.

    On a point of information, if you land from a dinghy at the staithe at the head of Kirby Creek and walk two miles along the sea wall and a good mile along the road you can get to the Red Lion at Kirby Le Soken. You can also get there by landing (if you still can?) at Kirby Quay (“Witch’s Quay”) and strolling up Maltings Lane but you will only have time for one pint.

    Don’t ask me how I know this.
