We were in hope cove and bantham beach and around salcombe , great fun there .i had a 645 brig with a 150 , brought it upto Scotland and it was too cold up here , hence traded it back in for the hard boat with the Cuddy cabin as it is much better suited for the kids up here.we just picked up the 450 brig and it is great for nipping around, fishing and ringos.my 10 year old who has done his power boat course loves it as you can launch from the beach yourself and it will carry 6 comfortably from hope cove to bantham beach, all round great mid size boat , and much easier to move about compared to the bigger one .

That all looks brilliant
I bet your boy must love the brig , what size is on the back ??

So at hope, you just walk the trailer down the beech to launch ??
where the car / trailer park ?, do have you any photo's please :-)

How did you get the 2 boats down ? (wife doesn't mind driving with boat I assume !)
Would love to hear more about it all please

Thanks

You can launch at the slip over the beach at high or low tide if you have 4 x 4 , a bit of a tight reverse but easy to recover , if onshore wind a bit bumpy so recover on the beach at inner hope if you ask Ray's permission , Google hope cove harbour master and it will give you his contact number .i found having a boat trolley with tow ball hitch ,bought from the Internet invaluable for pulling over the first bit of beach if you don't want salt water on the car, or rope will do.The brig is a 450 l with a 40 ,it will still do 28 knots which I was impressed with hence it is light .i wouldn't launch anything bigger than a 6m as weight would be an issue over softer sand .there were a couple of 5.5 brigs and zodiac with 90 s moored on the ropes .if you can get a trolley to pull up the beach you can leave it on the beach Click image for larger version

Or launch at Aveton Gifford on a high tide or Salcombe - not sure if you can rent a mooring in hope cove as there are so few
