We launched at slip shown, think its called Peveril point slip, parking for trailer is included as well I think if there is space left. It is steap but non 4x4 vehicles were doing this ok. As said it is concrete all the way, however, not sure what it dries to at Springs. We must have seen you Richard in the bay on saturday as we were in and out diving the Kyarra and then the Fleur de Leys. We were the drysuited mob in dull orange "classic" Delta dash with 100hp Yam accompanied by a fellow club in a brighter cleaner yellow Delta 100 hp Mariner.

Thanks for the replies, how steep are we talking here ? I donít suppose anyone can compare it to the public slip at Littlehampton by the lifeboat station (now that to me is steep) we manage to pull it up still full of diving kit from there ok, but any steeper & we may have problems.
If Swanage slip is not suitable can anyone recommend another one not too far away that may be a better option, preferably cheep or free with plenty of close by parking for a bunch of tight fisted lazy divers. (now thatís asking just too much)
Thanks
John

There is Baiter Park slipway in POOLE harbour, and seeing as there is a team of you then this should be a breeze!!! It is a very shallow, concrete slipway, and you have to walk the trailer quite a way into the water to float the Rib off the trailer, car parking includes the use of the slipway and is about £8 all day. Plus there is plenty of parking. Can get very busy at the end of the day and beginning.

Large pebles over a hard rock / concrete surface. We had to move a few of the larger ones, slip is steep but nothing that can't be managed by a sensible car boat set up.

Then heading west past Chapman's Pool it all changes, and you need to watch the depth - at one point we were over half a mile offshore with a depth of only 6ft. The wave cut platforms are very wide in places. Lulworth is an easy entrance, although the cliffs all blend together from a distance to confuse the eye.

HTH!
Only just read your reply,had to dash off for a late shift yesterday.Thanks for the tips, i will have a look at the chart this morning for reference .Great video by the way !
