Been a fair while since logging on here so i though I'd update this thread...


So, after getting bored of the york Ouse (only so many times you can go to York befor you wanna drown yasen) I made the decision to move back to Goole. While i Know Goole isn't the most pretty of spots it does have up sides i can now appreciate a bit more...
1, closer to home so less driving
2, right on ocean lock at goole so more play time on the Humber
3, security,
4, canal network... if it blowing a gale i can still use the boat
5, hard standing for winter...

any who, the trip down the ouse was really nice so obviously Naburn lock was dealt with 1st...

locked out with a NB and a Bayliner both of which were overtaken quickly so we could motor at a sensible speed..

we stopped at Barmby Barrage for the night so broke out the BBQ and Beers...the Dogs were battered!!!

following morning was another belter so dropped the Sib in the drink and had a paddle (before you say anything yes i know, no lifejacket blah blah blah but as you can see there is no tidal flow and i went swimming in it so it's all good) with Charlie dog

anyway, caught the next tide out and headed down to Howden Dyke..

Its a good fun run but the top end of the tidal ouse is full of floating shite so slow going as you dont want to shear a blade on a prop. once you get to Cawood bridge is opens up to a nice 10/12 kts can be carried on. The stop at Barmby Barrage is due to the tides and the water around Howden Dyke getting very shallow at low tide (plus Ocean lock at goole is only accessible 1hr before HT and a few after with nowhere to wait outside. The humber has a huge tidal range plus load of shifting banks so advisable to stick to the narrow deep water channel.

launching at york ok but getting down river in a rib and back is a full week of tide playing... good fun though

A page I follow about Classic Offshore Powerboat Racing shared a few photos taken in the early/mid 80's at various Cowes Torquay races... low and behold lurking... there in the middle of it all is my (dads) boat... I remember these races as a kid.
CTC Winners berth. About 1985.

and agian, mooching past Cowes Yacht Haven 1982 with the original radar unit on the arch and a tinker tramp dinghy hanging on the transom.

A bit of a blast from the past...

Cool trip! I had to follow along on Google Maps. Very interesting how much the tide has an affect on the river that far up. Anxious to follow along on your first trip to Humbler if you post.

Goole appears to be more of an industrial setting? I'm sure you'll have fun with those new surroundings and with access to the coast. I'd enjoy checking out all of the activity.

Desperate is in great shape. Can really tell that you and your dad have taken very good care. Love how the teak floors turned out.

:thumbsup

Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.
