Ah

Now thats where you're wrong, because the trailer needs to be the shape of a ship otherwise it will be the wrong shape for the ship to fit.

If you try saying that really quickly about 6 times, it has the potential to come out very wrong.

You can normally park round the back of the fish market for free...

Also, be careful at low tide - it gets very slippery. I ended up in the drink t'other day with a broken phone to show for it.

Sorry to hear about the phone - I'll warn Pat - he does the car and wet feet bit, I do the driving boat bit

I'm assuming that when using the Camber slip, you must call QHM (channel 11) to ask permission to cross shipping channel?

Yes. Just tell them you are leaving Camber Dock for Ballast Buoy and they'll give you the go ahead (or they might ask you to call again when you are just about to cross).
