looking to launch at either camber or warsash, but in looking to try somewhere new can anyone give some view on warsash, have a couple of questions.

is the slope quite gentle so ok to launch with a rear wheel drive car?

is the slope steep enough that i can leave the car connected to trailer and the water will be deep enough to launch boat
is there somewhere to secure boat after lauching or before recovery for the mrs?
is the parking secure round there
how long to get to slip from m27....approx
what is the cost of slip and parking?
anything else we should know?

very gentle, Chris

steep at HW and LW but shallow in between

We have used Harbourmaster's pontoon for this (inside berth near big Harbourmaster Tower thingy). Debs can easily access the car park from there.
BTW the Harbourmaster staff are always extremely polite, helpful & full of advice there.

seems OK and we have never had a problem
Quote:

15 to 20 mins approx
Quote:

used to be freebie but can't update.
Quote:

have a good look at the slip before launching to pick a line into the water (used to be a concrete post to the right) and check for running tide. It's not the easiest launchsite in the world but at least there shouldn't be crowds from 'The Rising Sun' hanging on the wall cheering you on in midwinter!!!

Chris

re charges at Warsash, they are minimal. About 5 harbour master dues, but they only just started charging and are a bit embarassed about it, so you may get away with it. Parking is free and there are loos.

Whatever you do, don't drive boat into carpark. Fixing windscreens and a-frames is expensive

I have used the pontoon next to the slip for launching/recovery mooring. Never had a problem.

As has been mentioned, most of the tide has a shallow angle. A long rope on the trailer is necessary at most states of tide I think. Last time I launched was at quite a low tide, without a rope, which was a bit of a mistake, scraped the bottom a bit, which does not matter so much with an old Searider, but you won't want to do with Viper

Echoing Kathleen and Paul, if be careful of the line you use, as you look to the water there are some pylons if I remember correctly on the left. There's also a concrete plinth running parallel and just to the left of the pontoon (and mind the gap between the two if you walk across the plinth to climb onto the pontoon.

Hope this helps. Might see you there, but not sure I'll be able to get back from foreign parts and get the boat ready and down early enough, so probably giving it a miss.

If I don't see you, Enjoy

Good afternoon peeps,

Believe it or not, I am actually going over to the Island on Saturday morning (hopefully of the m/bike ) so, if there are no objections (from Pete7 maybe?? ) may I be permitted to join you all at the Folly for lunch?

No problem, by me.

I am sure Pete would be willing to "bribe you to turn a blind eye."
OOOOOooooop. Sorry, buy you a drink.
