    Surveys have been done. Trinity House needs to come up with the buoy positions and instruct laying of them. Shoud be soon.

    This is on my Sunday morning list to do at some point very soon. Maybe launch the RIB and have a nosey around.

    I think I was one of the very few keel boats to get up to Snape Quay last year.
    I got piloted up there by Des, the Bargeman, from Iken Church.
    Left half an hour before high water at crack of dawn and there was barely 1.5M of water in the channel.
    There are hardly any whithies left and those that are in place are not marked.
    All a bit of guesswork really, tried using my plotter track which was ok from Iken Cliffs down river.
    Doubt if I will go through that again for a very long time.

    Safer than grounding the big boat. Cheers

    Not a river I'd attempt in my mobo, I have been out from Snape maltings but that was in the kayak.

    Lovely bit of countryside.

    It's a great shame about the lack of withies.
    There was a plot afoot a few years ago to do the job properly using a combination of a forumites' bundle of withies, Tillergirl's charting expertise and our 'help' but it came to nothing unfortunately, as some locals seemed very unenthusiastic at the idea.
