Last time i was there the signs at the top of the beach said.
'Bathing area only. No boats allowed without prop guards/protection fitted.
Strictly no anchoring or mooring allowed under any circumstances.
For mooring options contact the harbour master'

Basically they want you to go in and pay for a mooring.

I wrote letter complaining that trail boaters are obviously not welcome and asking for an explanation from the council.
Got no reply as expected.

Generally best to avoid designated bathing areas! there are thousands of miles of coast not sure why you would choose to spend your time afloat on busy 'public' beaches where you will probably upset people and you have to avoid the lemmings getting in your way during launch, recovery and going to / from the shore?

My youngest is 4 and all she wants to do is build sand castles!
Oh and my 6 year old won't go on the plane in the boat because he is a wimp!

So I'm afraid if the family are with me I have no choice but to deposit them on the beach first!

Weymouth used to be great but they have wrecked it now.

Mudeford is great as the beaches are quite empty!

Nah, they're rammed full of people, seaweed, rubbish, loads of boats etc etc

It's definitely not worth anyone going there (apart from just me :-))

Lol. It's a lovely place. Apart from some bloke in a blue Avon rib.
The tone of the place drops when he arrives! :-)
