Launching at Poole

I'm looking to spend a few days around Poole next weekend. Anyone know of a good slip and boat parking around there for a 3 or 4 day spell. Needs to be a fair size slip as we are taking using an XS 700

Thanks

Try Cobbs quay. Decent size slipway with good access and plenty of parking. No idea what they charge tho

Baiter Public slip is wide and free, you just pay for parking for car and trailer Dedicated parking toboot and fresh water was down (take your own hose)

And a long rope if you don't want to get the car wet.

The taps are a standard screw thread fitting.

As above Baiter is about 9 for the day, unless very early in can be a bit of a scrum lauching and recovering, jet ski's seem to get in the way. The slip is long and shallow, so have plenty of help as you will almost certainly need to unhitch the trailer and push in/pull out the trailer (long rope helps, but others will foul it or fall over it).

Cobbs charge about 45, but is a good slip and none of the above applies.

Rockly only really usable about an hour either side of low water, dont know the charge.

Depends how far out "around Poole" extends, another good slip up the river in Christchurch, with only a charge for parking (around 10 for the day). Again be careful at the river entrance at low water.

Don't mind going further afield maybe even going to try a couple of sites for the future. We will be in Poole itself for a couple of days but can then move around.

There are only a couple of us so pushing and pulling the trailer off car isn't an option, besides she is a twin engine 700 on a big trailer so tipping in at a good couple of tons! Launched with a 4x4 so definitely need the motor to do the work.

Thanks for all the suggestions

I think your best bet is Cobbs Quay, easy access, no tide issues, fuel available also (much cheaper than Salterns in the harbour), and its a nice run out past the RNLI training place and past where they build all the sunseekers, plus you will see where they are building the new 'Twin Sails' bridge.

Thanks
