    Default Getting up the Mahurangi River

    Hi Guy's,
    How challenging is it getting up to Robertson's boat yard. I have a draft of 5'.
    I'm looking at getting lifted, water blast, sand, and an anti foul, prop speed and anodes done. I've never been up the river and last time Dad went up would be 10 years or more back.

    How late on the incoming tide would I need to wait before starting from say Scotts landing. Let's assume 5 knots. I can still probably hit 6.5 as she's not that dirty.

    Could I get up and down on a small tide or do I need to pick a pair of weekends with medium to large tides.
    Thanks
    Zane

    Its well 'signposted' with P&S stakes. I draw 1.5m and usually leave Scotts at about 2 hours after LW, motoring at 3-4 kts. Give Conrad R a call to confirm.
