Now you've pointed that out it looks perfect. Not often you see a jetty to tie your boat up to next to a slip round here. Your spoilt.

Channel view slip

Slip looks good, not much info on Boatlaunch though. Can you give any further info - cost, anywhere to park trailers, general access etc. Thanks.

Its Channel View Centre on Jim Driscoll Way and costs £6.20 + £5 refundable deposit. Free parking for cars and trailers, I found out about this slip on Ribnet courtesy of Codprawn the best thing about it is access to the Severn at all states of the tide, outbound on the half hour inbound on the quarters.
Its worth just ringing Channel View(029 2037 8161) before arriving as they do close the slip on one or two occasions for events

I have not launched my RIB at Cardiff yet - something to do with some scum in Guernsey who ripped me off by not providing a trailer I paid for!!!
