dont know about lyme, but wareham is a bit out the way, its a fairly lengthy cruise out to the harbour mouth that does take some time if you adhere to the 10knot limit within the harbour and the 4knot speed limit up the river. However the water ski area within the harbour is not too far from the harbour but it does get very shallow in these areas and it is best if you go with a GPS the first time at least or take someone with you who knows the area, if you dont know it well yourself. I think the mooring/storage fees are substantially cheaper up the river though compared to those within the harbour limit. Hope that is of some help Oli

On low springs i would steer clear, but generally when the tide is low there are very few if any boats that venture up the river so what I tend to do is just use the marked channel that runs adjacent to the ski area to have a play in, this is deep and doesnt dry out. Im not too sure whether ridge wharf and ridge farm are anything to do with each other as I dont know that area too well from the land, i tend to only really go up there by boat (for trips to pub). I know ridge wharf isnt too far up the river though so it wont take long to get to the harbour and subsequently the ski area! Oli
