Have you tried Andy Pace, his yard is past Simpsons at the end of Newhaven Marina, I think he is cheaper than Simpsons, again only 9-5 though.

If you had launch wheels on the sib, I would suggest the small boat launch ramp in goring next to Worthing,it has a car park . Littlehampton harbour dues are not cheap, but there is a public slip and small car park. There is also a tractor launch at littlehampton marina. Or if you we're wanting to launch on a regular basis, I would suggest 100 annual fee to use littlehampton yacht club (not Arun yacht) slip.

You are wrong about Shoreham, there is a slip at rope tackle and a better one at emerald quay and there are no controls, safety certs, lectures from the HM or anything. Just launch and go...easy.

HI Chris,
Thanks for your info, I didn't know there was another place there that can launch and retrieve your boat for you, I can live with 9-5 for the right price if it makes my life a whole lot easier, I will drop them an email along with Simpsons and see what they reply with, Thanks again

Thanks for correcting me Will, much appreciated, I am only trying to be a law abiding citizen without causing any hassle for anyone, I know you can not always believe what you read, hence a great deal of help greatly received from all you forum members,

Will, where do you park your car & trailer after launching at rope and tackle and Emerald Quay? as I have read that Emerald Quay is a mission to park your car or trailer due to parking restrictions / private parking, Thanks in advance

Hi Shaun, yes that is true although i never had a problem as I always parked completely off the road on an area of the pavement that was so wide I could get the truck and four wheel trailer on without restricting the pedestrians or locals. Cheers Will

Hi All,
Launch day went fine last Friday, Boat and engine seemed fine, I used Andy Pace @ Newhaven for 20 to launch and retrieve so I was quite happy to save the hassle for myself as well as the great customer service received from Andy, no question too big or small and he was quite happy to give advice, I will defantley use Andy again,
