The best slip facilities wise would have to be Cobbs Quay.

I agree, though I think the cost is very high for the day. Last year a friend was charged £40!

We'll be out too on the sunday, I'm back from holiday early to avoid missing this.

If you have a sizeable rib say over 6.5m on a twin axle trailer I would consider biting the bullet and launching at Cobbs Quay, Baiter is pretty shallow even at high tide so for luanch and recover the tides need to be really on your side. If they have space at Cobbs they will often allow you to berth overnight on the pontoons if you ask nicely and pay no more (it will depend on availability though and I think its only £12 if you end up having to pay). This could be a perk if you fancy a two day boating trip to Poole.

If your coming up from Newton Abbot way then your best bet would be Cobbs Quay Marina as it would be easy to get to from your direction. It has a large car park and the slipway is good, allthough hope your launching skills are good, there is a RYA Powerboat Training school opposite the slipway so the students maybe watching you for tips on launching.

Cycled along the this moring & its full of 'stuff' - stalls food etc . The Mway & A roads across the New Forest were all pretty much full/ jammed earlier & there are already boats arriving to see the first day of this tomorrow.

If it stays nice ( which its not forecast to! ) I can see the coastguard being very busy !
