1. Obviously launching & recovery can only be done at certain times due to the tide, BUT can the river be navigated at all tide states (we would like to do multiple trips during the day)
2. Can the pontoons be used to leave the boat in the water over night, and if so how much do they charge.
3. Harbour fees, do these have to be paid separately or would it be included in any charge for launching/pontoon ?
4. Where is the nearest place to get air?
Thanks for any help
A lot of questions , however, best if you were to look up www.littlehamptonport.co.uk
Here you will find a lot of useful telephone numbers
I do not think the S & A is the best place for a diving club specially seeing your requirements. Diving clubs tend to use the Littlehampton Marina. They either keep their ribs in the boatpark or tow them down for the day or weekend.
At low water not much can be done and you will have problems in getting out to sea specially with a fully loaded rib
Call the marina on 01903 713553 and my guess is they will provide all the answers or even better come down for the day and see the facilities at first hand
I do not have the tel number of the S & A but I am sure Martyn has it
