I've read reports on Boat Launch about the slips at Swanwick Shore Rd and Lands End Rd on the Hamble but everything relates to RIBs.

Anyone have any constructive views to either or any other options in the same area?

Mainly concerned about parking and water accessibility as I don't have launch wheels. I do have a wife though who will help carry to the shore or bottom of slip.

Thank you

Ian

Big trailered boats better at low tide. Small boats whenever. Car park is limited at shore road

Warsash has a public slip by the pub, free parking close by in village car park. At this point you are end of River start. Bit slippery at times but for a small boat/sib very easy and does get crowded on weekends BHs

Another place I'd like to explore.

16 to launch and park even with a SIB, its not on a trailer.

Is this correct?

But is Lepe not just as accessible for Beaulieu River?
