Falmouth Marina sill at low water
Falmouth Marina sill at low water
The same view as my SW7933 : Falmouth Marina sill at high water except that this is taken at low water on a spring tide. The concrete sill which protects a disused oil pipeline running diagonally across the marina is now clearly visible. The outer pontoons are now nearly two metres lower than those in the inner basin. The sill provides a dam to keep water in the inner basin but also limits access from the inner basin out into the river to a period of a few hours either side of high water. On spring tides, such as shown here, the sill dries completely and nothing can get out at low water but on neap tides the sill remains covered, albeit with not much water, but very shallow draft boats can still get out.
