Slipways around Preston

Hi.
Preston 'slipway' is at Preston Marina which has no slipway, you have to be hoisted in which costs best part of 60. Tide effects you alot so you can only get out of Preston Marina 1.5 hours either side of high tide.
Lytham has a reasonable slip if you have a 4x4 or are brave.
It is not the best area for boating from Southport right the way up to Fleetwood since it is pretty dull with few intersting ports/pubs to visit.
