River Hamble

The river Hamble is navigable downstream from Botley Quay to Southampton Water at Hamble and Warsash, a distance of 7.5 miles (12 km).  There are no locks.

The maximum size of boats that can navigate the river is not limited by locks, and maximum draught is dictated by the state of the tide.  Maximum height is 13' (4 metres).
