Actually low tide was at 0614 this morning, the pic was about 0730 so it equivalent to about 0930 tomorrow. I'll check again at 0830 and see how far it's come in!

Are there big rocks on the other side of the slip, or just on one side?

Also...did you say there was parking for cars and trailers next to the slip.?

Thanks.

Big white 'thingies' on right hand side of slip as you look at photo?

I was thinking if I need to 'beach' the rib whilst sorting out trailer, the other side of the slip would be favourable?

that's amazing!

is your camera waterproof?, can you go down the slip and under the water to see if there are any obstacles?

oh I see, to my knowledge there are no major rocks in the water near the shore, one option might be to ask one of the sibs/ribs in the water to tether to, or I have a competent crew member who can manage it while you are parking.

we will muck in together, I have to park too.
