Anyone out Sunday?

Is anyone about on Sunday? I'm hopefully going to shove the Ballistic in for it's maiden voyage at Calshot, and could do with some company while I check everything's working.

I'd use somewhere with a pontoon if there was one with a tap for flushing anywhere, but there isn't that I know of.

Haslar has a pontoon but no running fresh water. What's the tides like Sunday?

Nos, you don't want to be tied at Calshot pontoon while you tinker all the tube cleaning will have been wasted on those black rubber bars

I was planning on picking up one of the buoys for half an hour or so.

I'm going to need a hose afterwards, so I don't think I've got a lot of options.

High in Haslar is 12.57, 4.4m.

I dont mind accompanying you if you choose to launch at haslar. you need a hose just for washing down afterwards? You could stop by my house on the way back home to flush everything down if you like.

Another option is Hamble Point Marina slip- pricey but tap at top of ramp for trailer wash down and engine flush etc. I would bring my own hose although there is one attached last time I looked
Also pontoon to drop onto just off the slip

Really?

I though the slip at Mercury was on MDL land and there was a fee? Same for the parking although there is indeed a lot of space for cars and trailers there.
