Launching in Salcombe


I know this has been asked before, but all of the other threads are quite old.
I want to launch a 6.2m rib at or near Salcombe, but only for one day. Any suggestions? Are the costs prohibitive? (Do I really have to pay a months worht of harbour dues?)
Cheers fopr any help.

Salcombe Launching

Use Batsons Creek Slipway in the town:
Batson Creek Salcombe[slipway] - Boatlaunch

Easy slip, lots of car/trailer parking.
I was down there at the beginning of June for a week, the guys running the slip/boatpark were very helpful.
Can't remember the costs but I know it didn't make me wince!
You can get daily harbour dues.
Lots of info from the locals in this thread:
Jubilee week in Salcombe

Here are the charges - Batson is the best place for miles for launching a boat. Call ahead and ask about trailer parking etc and they will sort it out for you and let you know the costs.
