Slip sliding away

Agree with Pete. Haslar is great for single-handed. Camber looks the business also as Nash has said.

We scoot in sometimes at Port Solent (there is a slip, not brilliantly accessible) but there are significant disadvantages:

1) location (location, location) ..long trawl down the Harbour to the Solent

2) Only a good hour or so either side of high tide (before life's bric a brac starts appearing on the gravelly beach...)

It works for us tho' and is brilliant when it all comes together.

Kathleen & Paul

Happy New Resolutions!!! : RIBbing for the craic!!!

As I keep saying, Camber slip all the way. I've launched and recovoered Greyhound - Ribtec 585 with my old Punto so I think that says how good it is.
