Nice wide slip (we had 3 of us retrieving abreast on Sunday no problem! But thinking about it don't us it it is rubbish just leave it to me
Anther + is the price is for launch and recover meaning I have on a number of occasions used it for launch then night out and recover the following day.
Great day out Sunday it was too
£31 doesn't sound too bad considering i have to spend £55 on a prop repair and maybe a new starter motor on the car if it doesn't free off!
Is the slip steep enough to float a 6.5m boat off a bunk trailer without dunking the car in beyond the tyres, but not so steep and weed covered it becomes scarey?!
When i was younger i was quite happy to fight through the summer jetski's and windsurfers at public slips, then fight to find a parking space. But now i got two little kiddies and the wife needs to keep an eye on them, i think id rather pay a little for the stress free convenience.
Thanks for all the feedback though peeps.
