Just a couple of things might be worth looking at:
Mylor, by far the best and eaisest place to launch in the area but slip way turns to mud below 1.5m ish above cd. Has excellent wide range of facilities.
Port Falmouth/Falmouth Marina. might be worth giving them a call. They are dredging at the moment and using mud for iland fill and think think the slip way is being filled but not sure.
St Mawes ramp is quite tricky and very steep.
St Just only has a short slipway then beach but at low water mud so can be tricky.
Meanporth often lumpy and surf with sand so only launch when calm with a big 4x4.
Now NMMC is open it is like treacle at that end of town by grove place slip way so can be tricky with a big boat in the summer gaining access,.
In generall I would say if your looking for somewhere to launch, would go for mylor every time.
Hope it helps
