Boatshow and the Hamble

Me and Her Indoors generally go to the Southampton Boat show and we tow our little Caravan and stay in a caravan site near Southampton for 3 nights.


This year we took our Honwave T38 SIB bought at last years show and on the Saturday we had a little run up the Hamble.


We launched at Hamble le Rice from the Public hard and paid 10 for the car all day which we thought was very reasonable.


We were extremely lucky this year with the tides so managed to get well up the river beyond the massive boat park.


We were amazed at the number of people out on the water on paddle boards and canoes it was most encouraging.


Here are a few pics etc from our day.... The weather could not have been better.

Thanks Fenlander yes a lovely day. The Harbour dues are 6 if you can find a place to pay them. That is for a boat up to 6 m From memory

The Hamblke can be a great day out.
Spring tides are ideal for a trip up river at lunchtime. Aim to arrive at the Horse and Jockey just before the first high tide and make sure you've left no more than 30 minutes after the second high tide.

Great write up BP. It's encouraged me to think about a trip to the Hamble in October, although I don't expect the weather will be as lovely as you enjoyed!

What's the slip like at H-L-R? It looks very shallow, is it suitable for launching a RIB?

Consider using the slip on the other side of the Hamble at Warsash, its useable at all states of the tide but easier near a low as the slip gets steeper. Lots of free parking for car and trailer although you will have to pay the Harbour Master to launch.

Thanks Andy, I've taken a look in Google maps and it looks muddy or sandy with a coating of green seaweed/algae on top - have I got the right location?

I tow with a rear wheel drive car which is terrible in mud!

You have the right location, the slip is pretty stable very firm gravel and very shallow so it shouldn't be a problem. It can get very weedy at the top of the slip but the council clear it very regularly.

If you are launching a larger boat, Warsash is one of those places where it's better towards low tide +/-3hrs. The camber at the top is so slight you need a very long rope and lots of wading to get the trailer deep enough to float a 5m+ rib on. it get a bit steeper lower down, but longer pull up

The Slip or Public Hard is quite good. While we were there 2 ribs I would say max length 4.8-5 m were launched and that worked well. You seem to get a double/long tide on the Hamble so that helps. I would not want to launch or recover at low water though. Harbour dues are very cheap that is if you can find someone to pay

Thanks guys - these slipways look like good options.

I am unsure how easy it will be to rope it over this terrain with a regular jockey wheel. The rig is around 1.8T and it has a regular hard rubber wheel, so it may be interesting to drag it up the gravel.

I guess I won't know until I try it!

very nice outfit.... That is bigger than the ones I saw launched. Also the route to the slip might be a challenge.... I suggest you look on google earth/street view

Im thinking I should do a recce before committing to take the boat down there. Id hate to get stuck down a narrow village lane or on the slipway!
