Was the eastern road bridge okay to cross under?

Firstly a massive shout out to Paul for calling this trip and to the rest of the lads for helping me and the girls out on the water!
This was definitely the biggest excursion for me to date and although we didn't make it the whole way round due to my passengers aversion to the Solent Bumps it was still a great experience.
Will def be making some mods to the boat to help tie things down and keep passengers in the boat.
The girls managed to take a couple of pics but not when we were underway, as they were too busy holding on for dear life and cursing at me. We all agreed that they will stick to canals, slow rivers and placid lakes from now on and leave the bumpy stuff to us!

Sorry for my delay posting :shame
New computer and new phone has caused me problems :-x but I'm back :Boxsmile

Many thanks for the kind comments folks :oops:
The big :TY should've gone to those in attendance :thumbsup with 5 boats and 8 crew :drive with some of you having travelled 1.5-2 hours to be there and some even manhandled their boats and outboards through their houses from their back garden where they store them to attend :o now there's dedication for you :Hats :respect

So about the day:
Unfortunately the wind had increased overnight making conditions rather lumpy so a visit to the Solent Forts was off the plans :no
Despite the weather looking overcast with a good breeze smacking us in the face we set off towards the main water expanse of Chichester harbour.
As we neared the harbour inlet the water was rather 'lumpy' and despite the roller coaster screams of fun coming from the girls aboard Haydn's boat :lol: it was decided to go around the back of Hayling Island, under the only road bridge on/off the island and make for a beach I knew within Langstone Harbour :thumbsup
Once round the island the waters calmed and the girls were happy :D as were the boys getting the twist grips wound open :drive in the 10mph limit :whistle

We landed in Langstone to chillax and have lunch

Where we were visited by the Harbour Master :? .... I was expecting to argue about the 10mph speed limit which we may have exceeded :whistle but was glad it wasn't the case :) to find Andy (Andiac) producing his harbour fee ticket proving we launched in the adjoining harbour :thumbsup as we hadn't entered Langstone by sea so we wouldn't have to pay another £6.50 per vessel for visiting :Boxsmile well done Andy :thumbsup

Lunched and our bladders emptied we had a little trial to exit the harbour towards the sea to return to port via the sea front :idea:
It was still too lumpy :( so we retraced our course back into Chichester harbour and headed for a sandy sheltered beach I knew :drive

The girls were very happy to be back on land once again

Happy girls

Meanwhile Steve (Enzo) just looked out to the flat calm waters, wanting to take advantage of the conditions :drive besides drysuits get rather warm when you're stood still :whistle

After a short break it was back to port and pack up ready for home.

A great day spent with like minded fellow boaters 8-)
For a first time out I thought the girls were very brave and pushed themselves to the limit before calling 'enough' :respect

Until the next time folks :clappy
:cheers

Video to follow once I've mastered this new computer and phone :thud
I walked through the door marked 'EXIT' and life is now good!

Nice one Paul!

I keep thinking about popping down there again and trying to get around into Pompy harbour. It will deffo be a weekday this time though.

I get grumpy around crowded boat ramps.... :asskick

We'll definitely have another attempt of circumnavigating Pompey this year once the scaffolding has been removed from the bridge over the eastern road :thumbsup

If you do choose to have a solo attempt then here's where you access the canal from the port and study the tide times and heights carefully to get you round ;-)

If you intend to just visit Portsmouth, be aware the channel can get busy so keep to the LH/Port side on entry because there's been new :Rules this year .....Chris Moody knows more so maybe PM him for info :idea:

QHM have now made bar buoy no 4 (a port hand lateral mark) a traffic separation buoy for the small Boat Channel (which previously ended at BC Outer but now extends out to bar buoy 4). Small vessels under 20m need to keep bar buoy 4 on their port side both entering and leaving the harbour. Previously you could pass either side of Bar buoy 4 both entering and leaving harbour
