thanks for the info , we went up to The Rising Sun in May , it was fantastic , we had Crown em 4 from Richardsons, cracking boat aand very well behaved , when we come home in October we'll be on Tobago 3 which is almost twice the length ( 44ft ) and 12 ft wide , i'm sure she'll go under the bridge , well at least i hope so . Happy days all cheers

I didn't notice any problems a few weeks ago when we cruised up there. It certainly is one of the most picturesque hours cruising to be had . Because the water is so clear , you can see all the " under water rhubarb " ( maybe they are water lilies!) but nothing that will cause you a problem with a little bit of common sense.

My limited knowledge tells me you should  get under the bridge all things being normal, on Tobago light. 

Good luck and enjoy.

Don't forget, you don't need to stop at Coltishall, carry on to the lock, good grass bank mooring and only a short walk into Coltishall.

Agreed, but do please check your weed filters when there, just to be on the safe side.:Stinky
