Nope, that does not include parking!!! But it is a good slip and covers almost all of the tide.....

There are a few free public slips. I launch from Cruden Bay (Port Elphinstone) which is a fiver in an honesty box plus free parking. Can't say fairer than that.

Its catching up down here , local councils are catching on the tourist rip off . and parking charges are appearing at the local beaches that have always been free .
The joy's of living in a tourist area you get pay the tourist rip off prices and the high rates .
