Here I am
- Perfectly usable slipramp (wooden) at the edge of the harbour in front of the RNLI building. Useable about 2+1/2 hours either side of high tide and dries to fairly solid sand so perfect for sib with wheels. If launching with a car may need use of a rope if wet as can be slippy.
Parking wise there is plenty of parking around whitstable but very limited in the harbour and on Saturday you'll struggle. Gorrell Tank is a couple of mins walk away and is huge.
- Perfect and in my opnion the one i'd use.
Main slip is useable 3hrs either side of tide and dries to soft "sinking" mud so you can not walk out on it. There is as mentioned a smaller ramp the other side of the car park opposite the cafe which is useable at most states of the tide bar lowest and dries to fairly solid sand so ideal for sib.
Parking - Lots of parking available but can get very busy on weekend. £10 for Car and trailer, or leave trailer in a small trailer bay for free and park car on other side for a few pounds. If this is busy then opposite is the divers arms public house and another car park down that side road which is about 30 seconds away. Alternatively a lot of people launch and get a friend to drive car along seafront towards hampton, park on road for free and jump in boat in beach.
Wooden ramp dries and sea goes out some distance. Useable 2 hours either side of HW. Lots of parking and all free. Gets slippy under foot and maybe not that great for sib as wheels may get stuck on ramp.
Herne Bay has the added benefit of it being staffed at weekends and they are very very helpful. His name is Doug and sits in the hut by the ramp.
Well hope that lots helps and have a great day out
