Launching, Studland bay?
Hi I agree with the above, I have launched my 4.25m RIB with a 60hp outboard 4 times in 2013 from the knowl beach slipway, they have never asked or paid any attention to the size of the engine and on 2 occasions there has been other boats launching with engines above 30hp too!
The slipway is a little steep but knowl beach is great.
As for parking the camper there is loads of room, the car park doesn't open officially till about 8am, however the 'out' gate is open much earlier by the toilet cleaner and both he and the people in the office say no problem coming in early as long as the gate is open!
Parking costs £10.00 a day but if you join the national trust for £45.00 its free!
Also as previously said, it says no overnight parking without permission, however the 4 times I went in 2013 I asked if we could stay overnight and they allowed us with no problems.
Its a great place with a great attitude, Im glad the national trust are changing for the better!
