I kept a boat at Northney for a couple of seasons, and I really like the slip there. It is
steep, but that's not a bad thing if your tow car os up to it (a FWD saloon might struggle a bit though).
It's a bit slippy at low water, but at least it's usable at all tides. You can easily avoid the slippery bit by using a rope between the car and the trailer.
The main drawback is that it's about 40 minutes to the sea, and the Chichester Harbour patrols tend to be a bit overzealous for my liking!
