There is a tap in a cabinet at the top of the slip. Beware it has a 1" connection. (last time I was there)

I carry my own hopepipe to wash the boat down (and other kit) after a trip and also to flush the engine. I know that at Bridlington the guys who run the launching, have muffs that you can borrow (they also have the tubs) but I am not aware that the Whitby guys do this. I thought that any muffs would do but that is a guess. I bought mine on ebay fairly cheap.

I spent a lot of time with the Whitby tap trying to get the correct fitting. I eventually ended up at some trade place that made me up a steel/brass connector that sort of fitted. Last year I found a shop that sold a plastic 1" fitting and low and behold it did not fit. I understand there is different sorts of 1" fitting (tappered /non tappered)

If you are doing a weekend you can leave your boat on the pontoon. I found this very useful.
