At Polly Steps it is quite funny just to stand and watch during a summer weekend ............. I am retired, so I only go during the week when it is nice and quiet.

If Polly Steps is busy then use Gales Hill Slip which is ok at any time of the tide. Leave your trailer by the fence and park in the town car park opposite ...

If you can time your launch and recovery for high tide then I can recommend the slipway at the old Tremlett Boatyard. They charge 18 but there is no problem at all with parking, never any queue, and you launch into very quiet water. They also have water for hosing down and toilet facilities.

I've heard that the Exmouth slipway will be chargeable! That info came from someone at the Exe sailing club! The signs are saying open in the autum, we shall see :-)

been there seen it...not for me.
You may be ok with a small RIB or SIB on top of the Tide,anything bigger it's very tight with a very rough track to get there....and the River/ slip is VERY Muddy!
That's why they have the Hose...you'd need it!

I have launched my Revenger 23 from Tremlett on two occasions. Surprisingly the mud is not an issue - it does not stick to the boat or trailer. When the yard was active they used to launch 40ft+ flybridge cruisers so there is no lack of depth. And this is confirmed by the number of deep keel yachts in the yard. The rough track is also avoided is you contact them in advance and ask for the main gate to be open. This is accessed off the Exmouth road and is straight and tarmac all the way.
