You sure it won't be blocked? If it is I'll be screwed.

Any idea of the tide states it's usable in? Some nob has messed with the info on Boatlaunch.

I think it's accessible 1.5 hours either side of high tide.....

Cheers mate. I'll go to Mercury, it's a better bet.

It is, as you probably know it's round the back. I've never been charged to use it and just park on the gravel beyond the slip. If using the marina pontoons you'd probably need to pay for a short stay to keep them off your back, but there are some pontoons opposite the slip which people seem to use when launching, and MDL don't seem to mind too much.

Thanks Tim.

According to the MDL website it's 10.75 to use. I don't mind paying that if there's a tap to flush with and parking.

Last time I checked, both Mercury and Hamble Point were approx 15 each way. I use HP as it is still fully accessible at low water (Mercury only has a couple of hours either side of HW if I remember).

I am thinking of doing HP on Sunday as well.

I know we didn't have anything firm but I did offer to help out, do you still want some company Sunday? I've got a chance to go fishing if not.
