With high tide at 11:00 and no rain it was a good day for a late morning shopping trip to Truro, 3 miles up river on the last of the flood and back on the ebb. Conveniently there is a set of steps from the river right next to a large Tesco's who even have signage just for water users.
Warning: I am advised by a local that it is advisable to lock the dinghy too something if possible and the engine to the dinghy.
A day off of a neap tide I might have made it close to low tide but especially in an inflatable it is best to be on the safe side, some abandoned metal work could easily cause a lot of damage and a helpful tidal stream is usually to be welcomed.
