    Default new member with questions!

    Hello everybody,



    I lift next to a lovely estury (Ravenglass Cumbria) where the tide is more out than in!!

    My main sport is kayaking & I do enjoy a bit of kayak surfing from time to time, we often get surf on the irish sea coast about 2km from where I live.

    I can paddle out in my small kayak but it does depend on the state of the tide etc.. so I need transport with my kayak out to sea whatever the tide is doing.

    I was thinking of a small crusing craft (i could also take the kids to the better beaches in the summer).

    I was wondering

    1. what craft you would recommend?

    2. do i need a licence to run such craft?

    3 Might there be any restrictions for runnig hovercraft on estury waters?



    Before you ask my kayak is very small not much bigger than a surf board.

    Thanks Antony

    It looks to answer most of your questions.







    Cheers.

    Hello



    I have cruised in that area, it is fantastic, and access is great... BUT... it is a noise-sensitive venue if ever I saw one. As you choose your craft, put low noise at the top of your agenda, otherwise the complaints will come thick and fast!



    There are a number of suitable craft (and many unsuitable), be sure to ask for noise figures in dB's, for HCGB regs you /must/ be below 87dB, but target a lower number - the mid to low 80's is achievable.



    Cheers

    Ian

    thought noise might be an issue!!



    I take it a 4 stroke would be better then..



    Where did you launch from? did you just use the estuary or did you go out to sea?
