I've scoped this place...and wouldn't recommend it!
Very tight Very Muddy and very Tidal!!......Go on to Polly Steps....even with a decent tidal run on springs its a lot easier.
I hear the Town slip in Exmouth will be quietly made defunct ...

Whilst I appreciate the recommendation I don't think the Clyst slip is for me. I did sound promising initially as it would reduce my travelling distant but will go with Polly Steps.

Can you launch from Polly Steps at low tide?

I think it depends on "how low"? I seem to recall that on a spring the end of the slip will be out of the water at low tide. It was only about a 9 inch drop onto stones so potentially you could reverse the trailer off the end. I have not used Polly Steps since the council tried to charge me 19 for parking.

No, there are definite plans to rebuild it, at a better angle to the sea wall to reduce the cross-tide flow across the end. Meant to be starting this summer (but then we are talking East Devon District Council). Their latest, greatest 18m (yes million) splash zone further along the front is no doubt a far more exciting prospect for them - lots more developer cash floating around

Rec slip is OK an hour or so either side of HW (might want it to be spring-ish)

Certainly Hope so...but how long have we been hearing this BS For now?? Councils and Councillors have all kinds of "Plans"..definite and otherwise, usually a plethora around election time!
It's action that cuts the Mustard!...like I said..just how many years is it now
