All tide state slipways in the south east


After a trip to Salcombe for a week earlier in the year and being spoilt by an all tide slipway. I have been trying to find some slipways near me (say Essex or the south coast down to poole) that allow launching at all states of tide (our best local slipway at Herne bay is about 3hrs of high tide and that's pushing it!.
Because I work shifts and only getting 2 out of 4 weekends off and this limits my boating somewhat.

I have found camber dock Portsmouth on boatlaunch, but i thought it would be good to ask on here

Also i launch with a 4x4 if that makes a difference.

Camber dock is good for all states of the tide, as is Warsash ( with a rope), and Calshot.

Calshot is all state but be wary on Spring low tides as it gets really shallow at the bottom with sticky deep mud.

But that depth doesn't last long and is soon back to normal operating depths
