Thanks all, yes Dan love the cafe, the boat did belong to my girlfriends son's dad (girlfriends ex husband!) so I've known the boat for about 3 years now. Have been to the Cafe quite a bit, fantastic place especially when the sun is out!

I might see you east DEVON coast massive around then! Did I just say that out loud!

Can't see them getting it done before back end of 2014 season as nothing started yet. Plan is to re-align it so it's easier/safer to launch/recover when tide is running.

Imperial Rec one is still available but limited tidal window.

We managed to launch it at the Rec a few weeks ago with the high spring tide, managed to just get it out on high water on Monday afternoon, had to get very wet doing it though! Back wheels of my van were half way in.

Not one of the Best for sure! Not realy that bad either Ed....Plenty of Practice over the years!
Just don't try it on low with the Tide Running!...
Bloody Handy location though, nothing else decent for Miles!
So hopefully they WILL get it back into commission!

True Maximus,

I used it for approx 12 years but I have seen so much go wrong there over the years , and for the location and amount of boats that use exmouth, why have they left it so bad, as for trailer parking kin ell , polly steps makes it so much easier,but yes rec ground is fine if you want the whole tide out , but again parking is limited to that little car park just off to the side of the ground,

Now that slip just opposite the D class house , / surf type shack,,,why not extend that down to the water, ?
Nice to see the life boat station up and running now at the other end , used to,launch my humber inflatable from that there beach where it sits,



Sorry just to clarify its mamhead I am referring to not rec ground. Edd
