Hi

Even though I am new to inflatable boats I can see they look like a lot of fun. I just brought a 3.2m SIB

Is there a good place down in Newhaven around the Denton Island where I can easily park up and drop it in the drink. Before taking it out to sea, I'd rather try it for a while on calm water.

Thanks

James

Hi James

I am a regular at Newhaven, Andy Pace Marine charge 20 to launch, but you are restricted to return 16.00pm - 17.00pm and launch around 09.00am when they open, or self launch at Emerald Quay in Shoreham for free which I have used in the last couple of weeks (This is Tidal) park your car and trailer on the footpath / pavement next to the main road where the houses are, do not park on the main road or you will end up with a ticket, I have had no problem where I park so far as right next to the slipway it is residents parking only, you could have a play in the river before you venture out of the piers at Shoreham, I must warn the current was quite strong and choppy coming out of the piers at first and then it wasn't so bad after that, I had the same issue on the way back in, but the water / weather was becoming crap, or if your kit is light enough to man handle on your own, I would launch of Seaford Beach, and there is plenty of parking there, hope this helps,
Regards shaun
