Will have to post some pics of Leigh-on-mud (sea) I think the tide goes out even further where I live on springs you can sometimes not even see the sea from the beach! Unless you are 8 foot tall! Must be due to the curvature of the earth!!!

You should all experience the launching and retrieval of boats here you need an army rated launch tow vehicle, a case in point is that we are the only place in the UK thatís has a hover craft as an inshore lifeboat to get over the mud! They got it last summer and where showing it off to the crowds at the air show at which point the hovercraft got stuck in the mud and the lifeboat crew had to get out into the mud to get it going again.

I rest my case if you think Western super mud is bad try Leigh-on-sea!
