I'm just trying to get a feel for the place really. Will have two crew who will require a pub..TIA
    f you get tired, I suggest you pull in to Hartlepool Marina. Easy mooring on sheltered pontoons, and loads of good restaurants very close. Asda in sight. Plus fuel, water, showers, and a lift out crane if you need it. Just check lock-in times re tides, but it's manned 24/7.

    If you do get to Whitby you will see plenty of homage to Captains Cook and Scoresby but donít miss out on looking into Captain Jack Lammiman and the Helga Maria.

I then do a 20-24 hour leg directly to Lowestoft heading in a straight from 2 miles off Flamborough to the Cockle Buoy . The N sea between Flamborough and the Norflok coast is very busy with lots of shipping coming in and out of the Humber so you need to be alert.
    Hope this helps
    I thought Scarborough dried or has very limited depths?
    Pardon?

    Absolutely! The ship and museum ensure I will put into Hartlepool even in perfect weather, I love all that stuff.
    Here 's a piccy of a 30-pounder on the frigate Jylland (a bit like the Warrior, steam + sail) in Denmark, with my boom visible below. This cannon fired a blank at noon, and it literally shivered my timbers!

    Scarborough has a visitor pontoon which does not dry although you have to stay close to it as it shelves up after about 5 m away. Access is about 3 h either side so less restrictive than the bridge at Whitby
