Launching Portpatrick

Does anyone know if there is a slipway to launch at or near Portpatrick and if so is there any tide restrictions?

I would be wanting to launch a 7.5 meter rib.

Cheers

Are you crew/volunteer? I do hope not, because this is not the approach that I associate with the RNLI. I have always found RNLI personnel to be free (in every sense) with advice and helpful suggestions

No. I'm an "Offshore Supporter" so I'm paid up in advance

I'm a huge fan of the RNLI and support them where/when I can, but I'd hate to see them suggest charging for their services or suggest that they'd perform better after a few quid. It's just not their style.

That's why I asked if you were a volunteer - as a "civvy" you're absolutely right to drum up support for them
