Hayling Slipways

Looking for easy RIB recovery options at Hayling Island.

The slip at Hayling Island Sailing Club, Chichester Harbour have a vicious rip, making it quite tricky to get RIB back on trailer. Best done at slack tide.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the slipway at Ferry Boat Inn, Langstone Harbour? What's the tidal rip like by the slip?

Any other suggestions at Hayling?

very strong tide there, very difficult no where to tie up, boat goes side ways unless you have an extra rope on the stern go to Northney much better.

Hmmm. As I suspected.

Was a butt clenching experience getting my RIB onto trailer for first time at HISC yesterday. Did it on 2nd attempt. Stressful!

Northney does seem like a safe bet...seems accessible in all tide states and very sheltered; and great place for a newbie like me to practice in safety.

about £220 per year BUT includes free parking, toilets and showers, you can also pay as you go but expensive, Ferry boat about £100 per year and parking very expensive as you have to pay for boat and again for trailer so the cost will soon add up

You could use the puplic slip at Broadmarsh at the top of Langstone. Really big wide slipway, But tidal.
Its free, but not exactly secure for parking.
I used to always use it when i was younger. Never had any trouble, but i always had a banger of a car!

Have a think about dry stacking at KB Boatpark in Old Portsmouth. I used to trail and launch but now use KB. It's obviously more expensive but the advantages are more than worth the extra cost. Zero stress and worry about slipways, parking, security and the general maul and effort of a big RIB on a trailer. At KB, it's a phonemail about an hour before you need the boat, step aboard, turn the key and you are entering the Solent within ten minutes of parking your car in the owners' car park some 30 yards from the pontoon. If I sound very KB biased it's simply because it's that good.

I use Northney, great place & friendly staff nothing is ever a problem. The slip way is quite steep & can get slippery at low tide depends what your driving it with. Parking is never an issue either.

I'm with the MDL Cruising club & use MDL marina's for harbour hopping you get a free overnight stay in every six. Woirks out cheaper than dragging the boat every day for me.
