The harbour master told me you can launch at all states of tide with a smallish rib,
the harbour floor is coarse gravel so you treat the harbour as a shallow slipway. no problems with traction or sinking, if you really get in the sh*t the JCB can be used.
havent tried it yet though!
there is always the lifeboat slip around the corner!
we will have to exchange moby numbers closer to weeks in question and arrange something.
any more interest?

Good idea, Doggie?! as to launching -theym be a liddle bit rougher and tougher in that there neck of the[back woods] I once did a hard boat dive out of Boscastle,we were assured he,and his boat were geared up for divers it turned out thier idea of a dive ladder was a Transit tyre tied to the stern with a bit of rope!! which he had made?? that morning!!
Not much fun when youve been on the shot line for 40 minutes in a 4knot tide ha,good diveing though!!

I've launched/recovered at Watermouth at low tide before-only thing to watch is the tide comes in up the harbour quite fast and you have to drag the trailer out a bit by hand to launch.

Shame I can't make it for this trip

i guess there will be some manhandling of the trailer, the old landrover really doesnt need a swim in the sea to make it rot!
How did you do it? i was guessing the trailer will be easy enough to push out buy hand and recover minus SR, then use a rope to the truck to pull it onto dry land to hitch up?

Exactly like that. The slope is so gentle it doesn't roll on its own.

I might be up for this one if it includes a run out to Lundy. North Deb'n is a couple of hours for me.
