Free to launch, parking right next to the slipway for car & trailer around 8/day, sheltered wide slipway with good concrete surface, not too steep, pontoon just around the corner, so single handed launch & recovery is dooable.
Yep!! Launching there next weekend

Even at Peak Season it's usualy only 2-3 Boats in front..the Slip can Handle Two Vessells at a time no problem so it soon clears.We try to be down befor 9am at weekends.. I've learned to get down at 6-7 or earlyer on my own and have a bit of 'Fishing-Quality time' befor the Wife, Familey-Kids and Co turn up at thier liesure....Helps with the Blood- Pressure
