Crosshouse Slip (of interest to Solent Ribbers only)

Have you seen what they have done to the Crosshouse slipway under the Itchen Bridge?

They have banned trailers from the carpark and made a space to park them on the slipway - but there is only room for 5 trailers. Five! Are they having a laugh. On a busy weekend there is anything up to 15 trailers there.

AND you have to pay to park now. About 7.00, I think, for the day.

The only way you can park there, when the 5 bays are full, is to detach your trailer and push it to a vacant parking space and then put your car in another space.

What dipstick came up with this idea? Any one know who to complain to about this?

Pete, sounds like your spoiling for a fight, how about your local councillor, bought time they started to earn there expenses allowance. Which side of the bridge are you refering to by the way? but id does sound daft, the Itchen bridge is hardly a tourist trap more like the council want to earn some more money from a public slipway, trouble is its the ordinary folk that will be effected, the super rich moor there ribs in Drivers.

Pete

To be honest that slip has been a pain in the prevberbial since the stadium was built there. What with cars parked right across it, people having their lunch sat in their cars, vans , trucks etc blocking it and refusing to move to allow you to launch. If you now have to pay then I will just go down the hamble where you still have to pay but gain the advantages of boat yard facilities. Although if anyone does know who to complain to then count me in for the fight!

There are some good alternatives on the Hamble. We've used The Rising Sun slip at Warsash a few times (free) although the bloomin tide/current and the slipway hazard () have caused us a few worries in the past and provided some great entertainment for the beer drinkers on the wall!

Dont worry that will not be a problem after this season is over! There will only be one south coast premiership team, whose stadium at Fratton is nowhere near the sea front!
