Easy Mollers, that's a long drive, or do you mean 2 hours by boat

Launching at Ilfracombe

Sorry to hijack your thread but it looks like you guys are the local experts. I have an Avon 580/Honda 150 that I am thinking of bringing down to Devon this weekend to stay with family near Ilfracombe. What are your views of launching from the slipway at Ilfracombe (next to the RNLI boathouse?). From memory the harbour pretty much dries out at low tide?

Have any of you been round to Woolacombe/Saunton Sands. I know you can't launch from these beaches but is there anywhere you can pick-up/drop-off people or come ashore along the coast from Saunton/Croyde/Woolacombe?

Many thanks

check out the boat launch website for slip details, the one in ilfracombe is really good but as you point out its only useable for ~3-4 hrs around high water, watermouth cove is quieter, but is a beach launch, OK for a 5-6m boat though, all states of tide.
clovelly has a good pub and moorings. not sure about anywhere else though.

Lundy is still a possibility depending on the weather, i dont really fancy going if its a terrible day neither will the wife.
i dont know how everyone who is interested whants to play this, but maybe the easiest way is if i give everyone my mobile number then i will be contactable. if a particular day looks promising then perhaps someone else can send out the PMs a day or so before? i wont have internet access easily down there, unless there is a computer i can use on the site.
i believe the slipway at watermouth cove,ilfracombe and bideford are the best options and we could meet up in ilfracombe harbour if anyone is interested. i guess a weekend for most people?
