Crosshouse Slipway at low tide

Can anyone tell me if I can launch my Searider of the slip under Itchen Bridge at a 1.5m low tide without burying myself in Soton mud!?

Remember the depth of H2O can go down as well as up.............

Hi Steve,

We use Crosshouse all the time (!) and you'll be fine with 1.4 m at LW.

When it get's down to 0.5-0.6m, then you have to watch for the "rail" at the bottom of the slip. Make sure you always stay to the left of the slip as you reverse down.

As you have a 4m Rib, you should be able to use this slip virtually 100% of the time.

ATB

Brian

take notice of the pictures and keep to the middle of the Port side of the slipway (as you are looking at the water) and you will be fine.

Like all Slipway it's a bit slimy at the bottom but it's not treacherous unless you make it so.

why launch at cross house? there are better slipways than that one. why not try hythe marina or lymington. I used to use hythe alot (think thay now charge for parking) cant use below 1.4m LW. L ymington all tide, best not use 1hr before/after LWS http://www.rib.net/forum/newreply.ph...te=1&p=132952#
