Done some research, Lyme Regis is a little further but not much, what has nicer beaches? shallow slipway sounds good as we have not managed to get launching trailer in time for this weekend and may have to carry the outboard down to boat whilst its in water so Lyme may be a good shout!

Lyme is only 10-15 mins from Eype and has a sandy beach. Tides are early/late at the mo, so launch before 9am or after 3pm this weekend. If you launch early, you can use the pontoon that would give all day access. I will be around at the weekend, so pm me if you need a hand.

Exe treme, Lyme was brilliant! What a stunning beach to go to with the boat, everyone at the slipway were really helpful, harbour master was too and didn't charge me to launch spent two days in the scorching hot sun on the boat feels like I've come back off holiday very busy on Sunday as I got there later and it was nearly impossible to park but well worth it all in the end! Adamn I will find out where I am working on that Monday and I will give you a shout beforehand to sort it out.

Hi James. Glad you enjoyed it. I was in the water on Sunday as well, as there was no room on land! You are right, Graham, Mike and the harbour crew are great at Lyme.
Think I was opposite you on the pontoon.and was that you in the BMW?

We were in a 5.35 Xpro. Light grey tubes, grey hull. We were on the pontoon when you came in on Saturday.

Nice I'll have to look out for you next time, I'm going to try get back down there this summer! Know of any other beaches and harbours that are worth a visit? Was ideal for girlfriend and friends with the kids as it was easy to get on and off with the pontoon.

Hi again
Good luck gettng near Lyme in the school hols. For a jaunt of a different kind, and not much further away, have you considered Poole Harbour? You can experience the entire harbour and beyond in a couple of hours, and there are plenty of lovely beaches to land on such as Shell Bay etc. If you don't mind a slow jaunt down river to get there, I recommend Redcliffe Farm campsite. It has its own slipway and small jetty, with parking for car and trailer adjacent to it. I have launched several Sibs and a couple of 5m Ribs from there with no problems. Some dont like the slow river trip but I am an old git and quite like the chill out. Another benefit is Wareham town 10 mins walk along the river. Was there last week, going again in a couple of weeks.
