Slipway section

Nos4r2's recent post has given me an idea.

What about a slipway section JK? There is nothing better than local knowledge and piccies.

http://www.worldseafishing.com/forum...ad.php?t=77395

There are some great examples here - well worth a look.

It would be great if people could post pics of the slips they have used along with advice and perhaps a google earth link as well.

What about it???

good idea ,theres nothing no worse than driving miles to a slip only to find your not a member or its unsuitable for your needs,even most of the official guides are sometimes years out of date ,the slip at my club has banned day launches now for quite a while even though its still listed ,kindest regards mart.

Whats wrong with www.boatlaunch.co.uk ?

I think this is a really cool way to launch any boat BTW

Like Chris says, it's already there on boatlaunch. Why reinvent the wheel?

How about a resort/port review section which could include slipways, moorings, accommodation, cruise hot spots, things to see etc.

You can already add/amend information on Boatlaunch. I'm not sure what the update process is after details have been submitted though.

You can auto edit, I did it for a slip that someone was charging for and belonged to the council and the edit came through OK.

Boatlaunch used to be a brilliant site but since they changed it I think it isn't as good.

The photos etc are tiny and the info on each slip is pretty limited.

Local knowledge is priceless. I believe the info I posted on a slip in Cardiff helped some people and the photos on Ribnet tend to be great. Also only someone who has actually used a slip a few times will know all the pitfalls regarding parking - wether you need to pay or not etc etc.
