Wicklane Slip is excellent and I have even recovered their at low tide, although not advisable on clutch wear! Avoid Mudeford Quay slip way -its pants and almost a tenner excluding car parking.

Go parallel to the quay until the first fishing boat mooring then 90 degrees to starboard and you will clear the rocks.

Used to be a buoy to mark the outermost point, but no longer there.

Don't go any further than the first fishing boat - then track a line to the low water point of the slipway with your outboard as high as possible and you should not have a problem (+/- 2 hours low water).

Any further towards the moorings and you will find shallower water.

Hope this helps.

Call me on 02380 212112 if you want further clarification.
