does anyone have a view on if camber dock slip can be used with a car, we slip most places with the car......in fact never used the 4x4 for the rib yet at all, does anyone know if there is a smelly old fishing boat in the way currently or if there are better slips in the area we can use at all states. we have slipped at chichester, ichenor, mylor, calshot, pwllheli and only got stuck once on the muddy stones on the side at ichenor once with low tide and a boat blocking the normal slip area

any views?

Yes you can easily use a car. I pulled a Ribtec 585 out with a Fiat Punto so you shouldn't have any trouble.

You just need to be aware that the lower half of the slip below the LW Neaps line is very "slippery" and may pose a problem if recovery is effected at LW.

Chris, as it would appear that you haven't used the Camber before, there are a couple of points to bear in mind:

3. Small Boat Channel. The Small Boat Channel is shown on Admiralty charts. Its northern and southern extremities are at Ballast Beacon and No 4 Bar Buoys respectively. A tide pole is fitted to Beacon BC4. Small Boats are reminded that they are extremely difficult to see and the harbour entrance is a blind bend to larger vessels. The following rules apply:

a. Small Boats must enter and leave the harbour through the Small Boat Channel. b. All craft fitted with engines, when navigating in the Approach Channel to Portsmouth Harbour, are to proceed under power between No 4 Bar Buoy and the Ballast Beacon.
c. The Small Boat Channel may only be entered or exited by vessels approaching from the east at its northern or southern extremities.
d. A traffic pattern is established around Ballast Beacon; Small Boats entering the harbour are to pass close to the east of Ballast Beacon and those exiting close to the west.
e. Small Boats crossing the harbour entrance may only do so to the north of Ballast Beacon or to the south of No 4 Bar Buoy.
f. Small Boats, save those listed below, are not to loiter in the Small Boat Channel.
g. Small Boats should remain on the Starboard side of the Small Boat Channel and should adjust their speed to remain within the Small Boat Channel rather than overtake and be forced into the main channel.



7. Gunwharf Quays/Town Camber - Traffic Management. The following traffic management plan for craft under 20 metres in length (bound to/from Town Camber/Gunwharf Quays) is now in force:

a. Arrival. In the interest of safety all Small Boats bound for Gunwharf Quays/Town Camber are to enter harbour through the Small Boat Channel. Vessels are only to cross the Main Channel when they are to the north of Ballast Beacon, and permission has been obtained from QHM on VHF Channel 11. Vessels fitted with engines are to use them from entering the Small Boat Channel until arrival at Gunwharf Quays/Town Camber.
b. Departure. Small Boats departing from Gunwharf Quays and Town Camber are to obtain permission from QHM on VHF Channel 11 before proceeding. Small Boats leaving the Town Camber are to obtain approval before slipping and again when in the vicinity of The Point prior to crossing the Main Channel. All vessels are then to cross the Main Channel direct to Ballast Beacon and leave harbour through the Small Boat Channel. Vessels fitted with engines are to use them until exiting the Small Boat Channel. If any of these vessels are not fitted with VHF radio, fixed or portable, then they are to be escorted by a marshalling craft or accompany another vessel so fitted. When on station a QHM Harbour Patrol Launch or Volunteer Harbour Patrol Launch may undertake this task.

Wavelength's method
oo-er how did I get on mentioned on this thread
Having launched and retrieved there only once but with a rack of Humber boats of varying sizes for Ribex I would agree with the sentiment that it is is indeed very slippery when the tide drops below a certain level. The biggest we had was an 8m ocean pro and at the bottom of the tide I wouldnt have liked to try and drag it out without a beefy 4x4-even if it was only there to lean on cos actually standing up on it wasnt easy that day! Dead easy above the weed -as long as nobody parks a trawler there apparently!
