There's a free slip next to a free car park at the Farndon Boathouse pub. There is a gate across the top so if you use a trailer to launch, you may have to ask at the pub. I assemble my SIB on the slip way and launch with transom wheels and it's free apart from the day licence from Canal & River Trust.
I guess that the slip at Farndon Marina is more expensive.

Slipway access: - Private, property of the pub and available after 11.30 daily, during pub opening hours.
Type: - Constructed concrete slipway above the water, firm sand below waterline. (Old ferry).
Notes: - Arrive early before the parking area fills up. Unless itâ€™s been improved, there are small rocks to one side of the ramp and in the water that can make launch/recovery difficult in windy conditions. There is a small pontoon to the right about ten yards away. Between that and the slip there is an awkward metal construction that prevents you from 'leading' the boat around to the docking area by rope.
Have a look for yourself, zoom in on the map above and switch to satellite view.
