West Bay

Hi Again

West Bay's launch facilities have improved since the new outer harbour slipway was opened. It now caters for much larger boats, and 2012 launching charges reflect this. Irrespective of size, a day launch now costs 18! without parking, so it does put off some small craft users. See attached photo showing the old slipway (bottom left) and new slipway (centre right).

If this is a bit pricey, the only other option I can think of is Charmouth. There is a campsite 200 yards away, you can park right next to the launch area (not slipway) and fees are very reasonable for inflatables.

It's only a gentle 10 minute jaunt over to Lyme from Charmouth, and like West Bay, there are now visitor's pontoons available. For info, launch fees at Lyme are also 18 now!

Cheers redrock.

Thanks for the info, excellent info/suggestions and seadown sound perfect for the family as well as me

Gonna get the wife to check it out so that she feels involved as I wouldn't want her to think that me and the boat were priority
