Salcombe :- Creek Boat park?

Salcombe :- Creek Boat park. Thinking about booking a space to store and launch my RIB for a week in June. I will need to store overnight and have some concerns regarding security. Anyone any information or opinion on this park?

Stored the boat there whilst on hols last year. 3 weeks in total,
Gets hellish busy and the boat trailer was nudged a couple of times. Nothing serious. More chance of damage from boat movements than theft I would say. Boat park and slipway attendants are very helpful.
Get it booked early

There are cctv cameras and theft is rare now - we had a spate of chavs from Plymouth coming round to take stuff home, but I believe the cameras put paid to that.

The Edges is quite correct - book early to avoid disapointment!

By the way I can see fish quay from my office at home!!

Don't forget to say hi if you're around - have a tour of the factory as well if you want - it's in Churchstow.

Note that most of the moorings in the creek are semi drying - the deep water moorings are generally reserved for bigger boats. This can obviously be very limiting so I would have thought that unless the tides are very kind, you would be better to launch daily if you can (slip is all tides as I recall).

Do you know a secret deepwater mooring location Nick?

No, but I would still prefer to have the boat on a mooring, the worst I have had is about a 2 hour window that I can not get the boat off or on!
What I have done is anchor up off one of the beaches when I can not us the mooring.
