Slipway advise

Hello All
I live in Bristol and i am in the process of buying a honwave t40 with a 20hp on the back.
I know there's a slipway in the Bristol docks but I would like to explore the waterways towards Bath and onward. Thinking of Saltford starting point.
Regarding slipways can anyone help as being a sib I won't be using a trailer I will just be wheeling the boat into the water.
I'm strugling to think of places to put the sib into the water.
Also with regards to Lyme Regis, do you need to pay to simply wheel the sib into the harbour water.
If anyones local and can help I would appreciate any feedback.
Many thanks
Pabs

Hi pabs,

I live in saltford and use a honwave 320 with a yamaha 20.
When i go to use my boat on the river i drive down towards the jolly sailor pub and pull up out the front of the sailing club, when its busy best keep your distance from the sailors using the ramp.

You can pay a small fee to use the private ramp owned by the boat shop. Then you have space to prep the boat and launch. Be careful as the ramp is a bit rough so put a sheet down or something to protect the hull.

From that point you can turn left to head towards bristol or right to venture upto bath.

Thats the only real slip in saltford is the nice concrete slip up by the riverside pub has a massive river boat moored right across it :// so has been left to ruin.

Hope this helps!
Pete

Also in Bristol.Saltford charges 10 the same as the docks.Bristol boats in Saltford also sell the lock keys for around 12.As for Lyme Regis you will need insurance to launch and a slip fee of around 20.I normal launch from Teignmouth or Brixham no launch fee but may need to register your boat with car park attendant but hit or miss which attendant.Parking 3 at Teignmouth and 10 at Brixham.

Thanks all.
Peter, can you give me some advise regarding your honwave. You have a 20hp, is it managable for one?, I'm quite fit so hope I can move around on my own. Also do you think a 20 hp is ok for the t40 I'm looking to get.

Hi pabs, my honwave is an air floor so easier to unroll and pump up. Ive had the chance to assemble a t40 and i wouldnt want to assemble and disassemble each time, best trailered. My yamaha 20 is a 2 stroke so about 50 kilos and i manage that fine, but your honda will be a bit more being 4 stroke, so id rather have that pre mounted on the boat on the trailer. But the 20 should push the t40 just fine, i can shift with my 20 with 4 adults round old harrys rocks in poole at a really impressive rate! We kneeboard off the back too! So itll be good package aslong as it suits your needs. Anymore questions just ask!

It's ok being fit I am but-you won't pull that set up up and down a slip way
Very well you will need a hand I did it for a bit and it limits were you can go
And you will not do it by yourself as you will find out, good luck
